Microsoft Gives Free Games As Apology to Frustrated XBOX Live Users

Microsoft apologized to hundreds of frustrated XBOX Live users who had trouble logging in and accessing their XBOX Live service during the holiday season. As a result, the company promised to give away a free game to all its users.

Microsoft said the problems had been caused by a surge of people signing up and using the gaming service. The growth in new users had been driven by sales of top titles such as Mass Effect and Halo 3.

But despite this action, some users are still not contented. A suit was already filed against Microsoft, claiming that the XBOX Live outages represent a breach of contract and negligent misrepresentation for which the software is liable.
