    That’s all good and well, bt what is the exact date? Will we be able to transfer our profiles, Gamerscore and Spacebucks? What content will we get on Live. AT the moment I am only getting screwed out of Bonus content in Microsoft Games. ( No Gears Maps for me..). So they better make it worth my while…

    I doubt you’ll be able to migrate, but as a side-effect, content shouldn’t blocked by IP anymore – and we might get a few local features that you can easily create a secondary profile for.
