Day-One Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Buyers Get 7 Days Back

Day-One Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Buyers Get 7 Days Back

Several readers sent us tips this morning indicating that Microsoft gifted them seven additional days of Xbox Live Gold for purchasing the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package on day one. Julian sent us a picture, however, so Julian wins.

What does Julian win? Well, credit, for one, along with the seven days’ worth of Xbox Live Gold, which Microsoft should be taking care of by May 1. Microsoft’s gift is apparently all about loyalty and thanking you for the purchase, having nothing to do with the Stimulus Package’s launch hairball.

“To thank you for your loyalty to Xbox LIVE and for buying the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus package on day 1, we will extend your Gold membership for 7 more days of adrenaline-pumping action with your friends on LIVE. Your account will be updated by May 1.”

One would have thought free avatar night vision goggles were enough!


  • With the free avatar NVG’s and now this 1 week of LIVE, it’s obvious IW know that the price “Activision” set for the map pack was too high; and they still got alot of sales, so they don’t know what to do with all the money they are rolling in while going ROFL!!!! at all the people who bought it……..

  • How could something like COD4 go on to crash and burn so badly ? Devolve into an arcade, spec fest, noob-tube and camping failure ?
