A friend of mine recently bought a month of Xbox Live Gold to enjoy multiplayer. Due to unforseen circumstances, he had desperately tried to refund his membership.

Oddly enough, Microsoft refunded $9.99 to the cent, even though 2 days had passed and he downloaded the Games with Gold for free that month.

He suggested that all Xbox One/360 users can simply buy a Gold membership, download the free games, and then get a refund.

Can anyone tell me the problem with this logic??

Asking for too many refunds is fraud which will result in your account being permanently banned. Xbox One GwG titles will not work if you don't have Gold.

Ha! I never knew that last part. I don't really download many GWG games as I'm a collector and I truly dislike digital-only. (Don't get to see in my games room, and fills up my HD without ability to quickly install/uninstall from disk).

The ones I have downloaded are all X360 titles I think. Not sure I've downloaded and X1 titles yet. But I always assumed if my membership lapsed I'd still be able to at least play the games is downloaded to that point.

Ha! Now I dislike digital even more!!
