So I have just come to the realization that I have not payed for Xbox live since I bought my 360. I bought my initial 12 month Xbox live account November 2007. Microsoft sent me a message last October letting me know that my subscription was about to expire but I was not really that concerned because I wasn't playing many online games at the time. Christmas came and I started playing online games again which did not make sense because it was suppose to expire in November. I figured they had just made a mistake and did not really expect it to last much longer. Well I just got an email from Microsoft and as of February 18th I have a completely renewed gold membership. I still have the email. So I guess I just got a free membership. Anyone else ever hear of this happening?
