Hopefully my copy of Gears of War will finally work again, after this.

How would this change your problem with gears of war isn't this only for downloadable content??

How often can I use the tool?

The tool can only be used once every twelve months.

For people that have refurbished consoles (which I would think is most people interested in this topic), you don't even have to click on the link. Simply start your 360 and do the following:

1.) Go to "Account Management".
2.) Go to "Download History".
3.) For all full versions of XBLA games (and DLC) that you own, click on the "Download Again" button.

It's a bit tedious, but it works. I also tested it with my wife's account (on the same 360). She can now play full versions of all the XBLA games I bought. She hasn't been able to play most of these since my first 360 went down. This is exactly what we've been waiting for.

I am not too happy about the once per 12 month thing. You know, considering my brand new Elite took all of 8 months to RRoD and all.

And this is going to take for ever. I own something like 80 XBLA games and pretty much all the GH and RB music packs. But great timing, as "Max" tells me my console has shipped back to me.

Wow, DRM sucks ass.

This is why I never support paying for downloads.

*rant from reopened wound*

Wow, I'm stunned they finally got someone to take a couple of minutes to address this issue. This was one of two reasons I sold off my sizeable 360 collection on DP last year (the other reason was my third RRoD).

It's an unbelievably poor effort by Microsoft to obviously have been aware of the issue but have taken this long to fix it. They would have retained at least this one customer had they done it in a more reasonable amount of time, and Nintendo never would have sold me a Wii (which has DRM issues of its own).

Nice for current 360 owners to have a little remedy when their console is replaced every 12 months, though.

I would like to expand that question to any of the classic Sega games (SoR2, Golden Axe) because they've been giving me lots of license-related trouble since I had my machine replaced.

I'm personally waiting for XizerXXX: Xizer Does Dallas.

Then again, with that herpes comment...

It's more like "well fuck this I'm just gonna keep posting, business as usual."


If it is "business as usual", why not just use a different username?

Answer: because you would not call attention to yourself that way. And that's really all your being here has ever been about.

In the time that you were (for some reason) permitted to post here, I wonder how many good people got turned away from these forums because of your nonsense? How you were able to "contribute" here for so long is a complete mystery to me. I did all that I could to get rid of you (and other cancers) when I was part of the leadership team to the point of giving up.

I have to say I just want to Thank the Mods and Admins for finally banning Xizer

He was one poster that just shocked me that he stayed around, I had alot of war of words with him and I still have nothing good to say about him but It's just nice to see that he's finally gone.
