DRM and my Xbox 360

UPDATE* This issue is resolved! Way to go Microsoft.

Well, I’ve finally been bitten by the DRM monster. Just about 3 weeks ago my Xbox 360 suffered the RRoD (aka the 3RLoD) so I sent it in to Microsoft. They were very quick to send it back and I was able to confirm a new heatsink, and replaced DVD drive (BenQ). However, the licensed content on my Xbox that was more that a year old did not carry over. So, I must be signed into Xbox Live to play WIK: Falbe of Souls or some of my Oblivion add-on content. I must say, I am non too pleased. After a call to support (1-800-4MY-XBOX) they are “working on it” and will call me in “the next 30 days.” 30 days? So if my internet is down or I am not at home in the next month, don’t count on being able to play Oblivion

I have spent hundreds of dollars on downloaded content from the Live Marketplace, but I will think twice about it next time. I enjoy being able to use the things I’ve paid for. It is very inconvenient to have to be signed into Xbox Live to do it. Comon’ Microsoft. Get this fixed!
