Whether you consider it news or not, there is something slightly fishy about this short post
over at Kotaku. Apparently a couple of readers were given free Xbox Live Gold Subscriptions of 7 days just for downloading the Stimulus Package map pack for Modern Warfare 2
. According to Kotaku the statement on Live regarding the generous gift read as follows:
"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."
Kotaku insinuates that this gifting of Gold was an apology for the troubles that occurred during the launch of the map pack.
Anyone else receive 7 days for free?
