    To help some people out…I ran into the issue of multiple error codes (on the console and internet) and found the problem was that while I had been renewing with pre-paid cards, my account still had an expired credit card tied to it. Removing that card made everything work smoothly. Where is this info about the ms points and extra month? after signing up my points balance was the same, and my expiration date was 12 months from yesterday (extended a bit when I added my family’s Gold profiles).

    CAPP3SIXTY already asked,
    When do we get the Family Pack in retail stores, Major?
    Kinect is released today and my account expires in 3 weeks.

    Yay! Now my whole family can enjoy the Family Pack.

    Oh …. wait….

    Nope, not available in my country. Thanks Microsoft!



    @KP ScuzzyBunny – I did have that problem. Although I was on prepaid cards, the “active” card on my account had expired (I lost it and had to have it replaced). So I went in and removed that one and added the new one in, but still no luck. I’ll try again later – maybe it takes a while for those types of changes to “take” …

    Nice but will it be available within the Netherlands as well?
    It’s nice that we see all those good idea’s comming from Xbox but unfortunatly I think they are not trying that hard enough in Europe. I know we have a lot off different countries here with different law’s etc. but still Apple get there stuff here what about Microsoft?

    So I hope this family pack will be released here as well.

    What is MS statement about this?
