Microsoft apologised to gamers who suffered this week when the Modern Warfare 2 “Stimulus Package” map pack released last week was offline for two hours, received the following message from the software giant via Xbox Live: “To thank you for your loyalty to Xbox LIVE and for buying the Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus package on day 1, we will extend your Gold membership for 7 more days of adrenaline-pumping action with your friends on LIVE. Your account will be updated by May 1.” “Xbox Live Gold costs $49.99 per year. If you divide that by 365 (the number of days in a year) and then multiple that figure by 7 (the number of additional days you’re getting), you arrive at the value of this gift. Which is…Just under 96 cents. So two hours of your time, two hours of incredible aggravation … is worth 96 cents. To Microsoft,” revealed.
