So for many over the holidays (ed-non denominational here) there were a myriad of problems with the XBL service on the 360. I myself only experienced a few of these issues, but hell, if i can get something free i want it.

To many, this particular item that is being offered as compensation (well not exactly, MS are spinning this like a plate) is somewhat underwhelming. While Undertow (normally 800 MS Points) received mostly good reviews the feeling is that this aint enough, that we should at least be able to pick the game we want.

I don't really mind though, its better than nothing, and frankly MS owe us nothing, not technically and not really in spirit. The downtime was a minor blip for many, a minor blip in 5 years of almost perfect service.

More details and some pics from Undertow can be seen here.
