I was trolling the Internet as usual and came across a new plea from our Xbox friend in the corner Doobiwan.
He has written an impassioned plea to AceyBongos to help us poor South Africans in getting some Xbox Live loving…
Why are you guys being so mean to us South Africans? We just want to play like everyone else. All we want is a little bit of Live! love too. It was promised at launch and it’s advertised pretty heavily on the box so people have been expecting it and are growing a bit impatient. We’ve pleaded, we’ve petitioned, it was even repromised. Now your dear cohort Stefan Lampinen has turned around and told us we’re not getting it. People are pizzled to put it lightly. Guys are threatening to sell their 360’s because ironically PSN is supported here.
It’s nice to see that people are not giving up on us getting Xbox Live yet and I for one cannot understand how we can’t just be given virtual Live status. Just bill us in Rands and let us get on with it. Yeah it would be nice to get local servers but that isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
Agree that South Africa is a country that can access live and leave it at that.
For the full humorous plea follow the link and remember if you ever meet someone who works for Microsoft don’t forget to ask about Live. It’s your civic duty.
