Microsoft has 30 days to answer Polish players

Microsoft encouraged Polish players to buy original games (without multiplayer support and Live features) and stop modding their consoles. XboX players who are responsible for the revolt-ish website contacted Microsoft Poland and... Here’s what the kontrakcja.pl site owner posted on their site (translated freely by me): “We’re after talking to Microsoft Poland. (…) We live, we are well and continue to attack! It turns out (which was already a little…

Microsoft sells partially functional games in Poland

Some really interesting stuff is going on in Poland right now, Microsoft started a really weird action in which they promote the original games for XboX 360…but XboX Live service (and Games For Windows Live) doesn’t work in Poland which is absurd because Polish gamers pay for their games the same amounts of money like any other nations do. Few people didn’t like the whole action so they made their own action, read about it below – written by Kuba Pilecki:

We would like to inform you about our action, that started recently due to the statement of Polish department of Microsoft, responsible for promotion of Xbox 360 in Poland.

We have started a project called “Nie sprzedaję wybrakowanego produktu – nie kradnę (I don’t sell partially functional product – I don’t steal from my customers)”, which was a reaction to an action started by Polish Microsoft. Our project was originally meant to be an answer to the action organized by Polish department of Microsoft, which was against hard-modding of the consoles and the piracy. Because one of the representatives of Microsoft advised, that the main reason for a LIVE subscription being unavailable in Poland is due to a piracy, we’ve decided to react. Now we are planning to start an international project called “We want LIVE”.

As the users of the original versions of the games for Xbox 360 console, we didn’t like the fact, that somebody was insinuating that because Polish gamers use illegal software, there will be no LIVE available for us. We do not agree with suggestions, that that is the case. We do not believe that the Polish gamers are responsible for lack of LIVE in Poland. We think, that after few years of waiting for the start of that service in our country, after dozens of promises
saying “wait one more month” – the time we’ve given is over. And that’s mostly thanks to the words of Mr Kuba Mirski.
