I went to Burger King the other day but they were closed for maintenance.
I wonder if I'm entitled to a free bacon double cheeseburger if I go back?

I love the current Games with Gold service. Every month there's at least one game I want to play, usually more!
Just this month I beasted through Gone Home and I can't wait to jump in to The Turing Test. Medal of Honor Airborne will be a blast to jump back in to as well.
Sure, a part of me would love them maybe adding an OG Xbox game or two to the current offering so that would be 5 or 6 games but 3 Xbox One games? Get real!
I have Office 365 and Xbox Live Gold (and had Xbox Music at a time).
I'd love a Microsoft gold account that was like £10-£15pm and included Xbox Live Gold, Office 365 (which already includes Onedrive and Skype perks), major Windows updates, Xbox Game Pass and even EA Access etc.
the reason Amazon's ecosystem is so good is that one subscription just pulls you in to most of their services, same goes for Youtube red.
What's the problem here?
- If you pay for Sky, you still watch ads.
- If you browse Amazon's storefront, you're inundated with ads.
- If you buy a magazine, there's more ads than actual content.
I don't think the marketing is at a point where it impacts the experience. There have been a couple of garbage ads appear but mostly its video games and movies etc... Stuff I actually want anyway. Marketing is a revenue stream that keeps Xbox Live at a low price. I'd rather Microsoft make money from marketing companies and publishers rather tahn increasing the cost of my Xbox Live!
I don't get a discount on my energy bills just because I keep paying them! I pay, they give me gas and electricity. It's a service! Why do people expect a pat on the back for paying for a product/service they want?!?
This ticket is just plain ungrateful.
Almost 50 games are given away as part of Games with Gold each year to every Gold subscriber and the service keeps bringing updated dashboards, new features (e.g. backwards compatibility) and a stable Xbox Live.
My gym doesn't give me a birthday cake and a toy just because I keep giving them money... they just keep letting me come in.
At first I was like "well, this chump is one entitled so-and-so" but after thought, I like this idea.
It wouldn't have to be anything major. maybe different Gamerpic borders to signify length of service. But it doesn't just have to be based on service, maybe a culmination of Gamerscore, Length of Service and lack of negative feedback?

This sounds like a great idea. Games like KOTOR and Psychonauts can still be enjoyed today. I wouldn't expect to get them in addition to what we already have but, maybe instead of one of the 360 games. The GWG games recently have been great. loved Gone Home, playing The Turing Test this weekend and definitely going to play Medal of Honor. GWG is already good but, would love some OG Xbox love in there.
This isn't a major issue for me but it makes sense for money on MS account to be able to go towards services as well as games etc.
I've paid for mine at least twice. No complaints from me. Pick a name you like to start with and there wouldn't be a problem.
For me it wouldn't even have to be something like game discounts or credit (which can really add up fro a company). I'd appreciate just a complimentary avatar item, theme or gamerpic. It would cost little and would be a nice gesture.
This idea is just terrible. Pay for your services! Gold is worth every penny.
