Crippled Xbox360 content, another reason not to buy it

ChrunchGear reporting a replaced Xbox360 doesn’t access owner’s Xbox Live content.

Microsoft sent Kevin a different console. When he tried to access his Xbox Live content on this different Xbox, he found that it didn’t work on profiles that weren’t the purchasing profile. When you buy something on XBL, it can be accessed by every profile on the console and not just the one that did the purchasing. Not so with the new Xbox.

This is bad on so many ways in our market. For starters, Microsoft Saudi Arabia is not handling the Xbox360 distribution here. So no one except the really honest stores will help you with the ring of death, and they are few. So if you buy an Xbox360, you might as well forget about using Xbox live.
