    Definite Play - Online Xbox Live Subscription Site

    I was wondering if anyone had ever used this site before? Last night i bought 12 months xbox live online from them for £29.99 which i thought was a good deal. Whole deal went through with Google checkout and this morning when i got up i had the code sitting in my email.

    Trouble is, i cant get it to work! I put the code on, and it tells em that the code is for 12 month subscription, so i know its valid (or was valid) but when i click redeem i get some status code error and it doesnt work.

    Ive emailed the company and waiting for a response, but ive got a feeling i have had a fast one pulled on me!

    Any thoughts?

    Dunno, but £29.99 is NOT a good price....

    I paid £21 from Ebay where its always cheap and theres a website (forget the name) and they sell it for about the same-ish

    If you look on Playtrade too its cheaper....

    Not sure about the code itself not working, but thought you should know for next time :thumbsup:

    ahh right. Thanks for the heads up. I was in a rush to get a code as ive never bought one before and the one month i got free with the 360 has ran out. I seen Microsoft were pushing them out at 39.99 so thought a tenner off was good so went for it. More fool me!

    Them codes come from USA, they get them cheaper (with exchange rate)
    They are NOT region coded, ie they WILL work here.
    Email them, sometimes they get a letter wrong or something.
    hopefully get it sorted...!

    If they are US based they are probably asleep, give them time to respond.

    Thanks LFC - my two 12 month subscriptions from some discounted original Xbox live kits is about to run out. Unfortunately I suspect there are no more original xbox live kits around :-(

    Think I'll give Jasper a go - thanks for the link.

    Well i got stiffed for this! Rang Microsoft and after lengthy conversation this code doesnt exist on there system. Even tho when i put the code on, my 360 says its a 12 month code like it is. Used already? Maybe, conned out of 30 quid, absolutely!

    Yep Jasper is very good, I got my code and it worked fine. Well cheap.
