GOLD EXCLUSIVE PRICE
Not valid in my region .
Said that for me initially, then asked me to select my region, I picked Australia and then it worked fine if not try: http://www.xbox.com/en-AU/Live/games-with-gold/home
Good game, great wenches.
not working for me?
Me neither. Can't find it by searching on my 360 either.
nor me, only asks me to purchase at final stage :(
Now, can't even get to the final stage - get a "whoops we can't find the page" message.
Every single month I have a problem with GWG.
The Xbox website is a hunk of junk; I have a pre-paid subscription and every single time I try get a free game it says I don't have a valid payment option.
You're lucky it even find it when searching for it on the Xbox.
The whole system needs a revamp.
Yeah since the One the Live site hasn't been the same, they have issues even using your own account money.
Try purchasing from your Xbox.
People were creating free 1 month Live accounts, redeeming the free games and then selling the accounts on eBay. To try and cut down on that Microsoft wants you to download from an actual Xbox.
So if you have an Xbox One but wanted to "buy" the free Xbox 360 game you can't do it from the Xbox.com website?
You can usually, but Live seems to be having all sorts of troubles lately, and this game isn't even showing up on the store.
Just tried, looks like I need to purchase on an Xbox 360 once before I can purchase Xbox 360 games on their website… :(
Message from website when I tried to purchase below:
Is this your first purchase? To ensure it is compatible, please sign in to Xbox Live using your console and try again.
I can't get to anywhere where I can 'purchase' the game. May be a bit early yet?
Its set on american time. If you have an australian account you may be a day early
Yes just wait till tomorrow afternoon then you can find it from your Xbox game channel
It is working
Available from the dash if you search for it there
Wasn't listed in the Games for Gold section (which was still showing the previous game), but found it via a search and it was available for free.
This is from the Xbox 360 dashboard, Australian account.
Brilliant, thanks OP!!! :D
For those having trouble, Xbox live is munted atm:
Searching the store returns no game results for The Witcher 2 atm, looks like Live is having problems again. Surprise surprise. Been a member for 9 years, first 8 of those never had a single problem, last 12 months seem like its been having troubles more often than not.
Fantastic, wish I'd know that before purchasing my Xbox…
Would I be able to "buy" this if I have an Xbox One? (not to play on the One obviously but who knows, I might pick up an 360 at some point in the future…)
Not from the Xbox One, but you can easily do it from the website.
They seem to have fixed buying it from the link now, and it's free.
When I click on the game under games with gold I get "No items".
I've checked and my region is AU.
The link in case people are having difficulties.
Ooops! What happened to this page?
We’ve moved some things around.
And from Games->On Demand I get error with status code 8C230002. I've got my privacy settings changed so nothing is blocked as per the guide when I go to www.xbox.com/errorhelp (though some of the info there doesn't match the current menus I managed to figure it out).
Very frustrating. Games with Gold? Games with frustration!
e 8C230002. I was getting that most of the day just trying go redownload things to a new 360 from Accounts > download history. Check you can download and install one of your older games first, as I couldn't until that worked.
I followed the original post link, and it opened witcher2 with a purchase button for $49.95 (but said gold-free) - when logging in with my gold account and hitting purchase, it brings up payment options, then that charge is "free", so I went ahead. When then logging into the xbox the game was available in my download history—- although it seems to have licensed to the wrong physical xbox as I have several - but that's my issue.
the live site is intermittent, they're having real issues > the link is again NOT working for me with öops what happened to this page" - but it worked last night.
Is it my imagination or did the comment linking to a youtube vid outlining how to
get a 'free' 1 month XBL Gold membership get removed from this thread!? :-/
fwiw I think they've already patched it
