    Open until they receive 300,000 applications? It's going to be open forever then.
    They'll be celebrating the 16 year anniversary by the time this amount gets reached.

    I bought a deal off the Dashboard last year, a years gold, plus The Maw and Snoopy. I never got the games and when i contacted them months later they claimed to know nothing of the deal.
    Same here. I signed up for 3 different promotions with different gamertags for the Maw and never got any of them. One of them had been for signing up for a 1 month Gold account, and then I had converted it onto a family plan and because I did that they said it voided the promotion. It was garbage because I had spoken to Xbox Live reps before I converted them that it would not impact me from getting the free games, however it was only many months later after dozens of calls they told me I no longer qualified for the game because I had converted the account onto a Family plan.

    A 'free Xbox Live game' isn't going to attract someone into buying a console they don'tcare for. Microsoft will never succeed there.

    Xbox has to do something to try and keep however many Xbox players they have left out there. The sales have dropped substantially and they are pulling games off the shelves and not ordering new shipments. The Xbox is a dying breed in Japan..:(

    Thankfully I don't need to write a comment positively speaking about SCEJ/SCEA and Playstation since this article and the current responses already do it for me.

    Great for Japanese players though to get some stuff for free, and I'm glad we're posting something on TA news that isn't revolved around the US or UK.

    I hope not, my sister is working over there so I was going to get her to enter for me. Already ordered 28 games on her Amazon.jp account to ship over and added 20 more to the wish list. I don't think I'm pushing it.....

    Same logic with the Ps3. We buy their stuff, but they don't do the same. Proof they want to destroy us.
