so had some unauthorized xbox live purchases show up on my debit card this morning. immediately call customer support and instead of being the victim here, i get treated like the fuckin criminal that hacked my live account. they told me to call my bank! they're gonna take 3-8 weeks to investigate the fraudelent charges when they could already see the fucking points were going else where besides my console. i was livid and still am. was just about to drop some $$$ for a slim for my girl but now she can wait til i save up some more to buy a ps3. i won't be supporting M$ any longer and i sure as fuck ain't signing back up for live after they eventually figure out it wasn't me. if i coulda reached thru the phone, i woulda punched that "supervisor" in the fuckin face.

Join the darkside!.... actually... or is it the dusk side.

I would just go buy a used PS3, my friend got one used for 150 dollars from gamestop for a 40gb one with PS2 B/C and it works just fine so he upgraded the HDD to it to a 500 gb. Sure you don't get the original box and most of the stuff from inside, but half the time who even keeps all that stuff.

How dare they investigate the problem? They should travel back in time and kill the criminal, not this investigative nonsense.

Just buy a modified xbox, or get a second hand one and modify it, and then download all your games. You screw MS so much more this way.

sux that it hadden .. but people cant really blame MS for wanting to make sure its a jegit call (even tho they will).. i mean just because someone phones up and says they didnt buy it doesn't actually make it so ..

It shouldn't take 3-8 weeks

why not? what do you know about what they need to do?

ohh because you say so....

Well, they never saw a cent from me for their "gold" service. I'm of the opinion that console online play should be free given how early the servers get abondoned and shutdown.

please explain why it wouldnt tbh .. if i phone my CC company regarding a fake tranaction it can take 3-5 weeks for them to sort it out .. why would this be any different?

if i spend a shit load on psn or xbl now and then phone up and say i didnt spend it ... they are not goign to say ok here have all your money back then are they ...

They usually know right away if it is you or not.

I have had a lot of fraudulent things happen to me in my life, most of the time they do something about it instantly cause they can tell. eBay did when my account got hacked into and had people selling boats and cars on my account.

Its not really about knowing if its yours or not. Its convincing their insurance company to give them the money to pay you back with.

your best bet to get the money back is to phone your bank and tell them that this happened. Since all bank accounts have insurance in cases of fraud.... I hope yours does at least.

Except that they practically never get shut down except for EA games? That's right, I called you out. All the way out.

Dude, it doesnt matter. People dont play console games online that long. After a year every server is abandoned by the players cause no one plays that game anymore. Its pratically impossible to get any matches done except on the most uber popular games like Modern warfare.

The shut down comes when the developer sees no one is using the server anymore. Feel free to call me out on that, the fact is the anual fee is hardly justified for a service thats so limited. Your wallet is getting raped.

But your justification was a made-up one, based, presumably, on what happens to PS3 games after they've been out too long. How do we know the new one you just came up with isn't made up too?

Also, the fact that people stop playing most online games after they've been out long enough has nothing to do with the value of one company's online service over another. Not unless you are suggesting they should take the Xbox Live profits and use it to pay people to play old games online. Come to think of it, that'd be a pretty cool job!

I didnt mention PS3 a single time. I talked about console games and most precisely the examples set by the PS2 and Xbox.

All i said was that given the speed with wich on current consoles servers get abandoned by players fed up with the games makes console online gaming a service that doesnt have good quality. I go on a game i like on Xbox live these days and if i want to have an online round i either dont manage or have to wait half/one hour or longer.
Also, given how the older servers are shutdown a few years after their out as given by the examples set by the PS2 and the Xbox, it makes for a bad service on long term.

Thus i think this service should be free since it doesnt have the same quality over time as the single player experience does.

I dont know exactly what i made up there but i'm sure you'll tell me.

i did get my money back but not from M$. my bank reimbursed me right off the bat. it's just the fact M$ didn't give 2 shits is what bothers me and the fact i can't use my live account for the time of the investigation. good thing i decided to cancel it any way.
