Why would MS close the authentication servers? Those are part of Xbox Live, are people thinking MS is going to close Xbox Live down now? You know what will happen, MS releases a new Xbox in another 7-8 years from now and your Live account just keeps working on it and your licenses keep working and so on.
I'll just put this right here.
And this is all within the Xbox 360 lifetime, these titles are gone from the servers, what are they? games? DLC? pictures? themes? who knows
My download history has 30+ of these in there, MS has a history on dropping support and killing things completely in the long term, so we should
for no reason think Xbox One and games will be any different.
Another issue I am having is with their regional restrictions, I recently moved from North America to New Zealand, and while it allowed me to
queue/purchase games from Games on Demand on XBL, it wouldn't allow me to download them, it would get to 70-90% and fail, I had to change
my account region to NZ, which in itself isn't a problem, but some of my purchased GoD I can't even download at all now, due to regional restrictions
Some are even silly, the same games are available here, and on GoD, it just wont download till I purchase again, which it wont allow me to do because
I already purchased it.
