    Thumbs up Microsoft have fixed the XBLA DRM

    If you have a load of XBLA games and arnt using your original console (who is?) then youve probably found you need to be signed in to play your games. However microsoft have seen the error of their ways and have created a nifty web page that lets you change the licenses to your latest console.

    It couldnt be simpler to do. Enjoy!

    They finally got round to fixing the DRM, shouldn't have ever happened in the first place.
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    Re: Microsoft have fixed the XBLA DRM

    it says if your console is a refurb from ms you dont need to do this but my 'full' games are still reporting as trials even when i redownloaded, with the exception of bomberman

    also feeding frenzy wont start at all and says its because my console is displaying at pal 50 which it isnt, even my telly has a thing where u press a button comes up on the screen with 1080i/60hz this is infuriating grr

    I think for that you need to put the standard composite cable in and select pal 60 then go back to hdmi/component

    Re: Microsoft have fixed the XBLA DRM

    If only they fixed it completely, I noticed a serious issue. When they change offers or reprice items.
    Quite often the entries in your download history will become invalid and greet you with "unknown game - unknown offer".
    It's not a terribly wide spread problem, I believe it mostly occurs when you upgrade a trial rather than straight out purchasing a full title, that also means there will be no indication that you've bought the game previously and I have no idea why.
    I've lost 3 full titles that I've paid for and have yet to come across a solution. Xbox support is completely useless on this matter.
