    Ok last moth I started my 360 and saw a mouths free live was offered to me. So I selected it and choose to use it. The thing is that all the info on the offer page was in Russian or some language like that. I used the offer anyway thinking it was just a glitch. It worked and I had Live again. I played a few games online during the free preview and they all worked perfectly. So when time for the free preview to end it tried to auto renew, but the credit card I had linked to my account was an old one that wasn't valid anymore so the auto renew didn't work. I knew this would happen that's why I didn't bother to cancel it.

    Ok here is the weird part. My online is still working. It's been 2 weeks since it should have stopped. The only games I can't play online are games requiring a Live Gold account(Star Wars Battlefield 2 for example). Customer service checked and I don't have Gold service.(I didn't tell them my online games were working though) So has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?

    That happens sometimes. Give it a month or two and it’ll stop working.

    Oh don't say that. I was hoping it would stay.

    Are you playing the 360 games on XBOX ONE? Because on xbone, multiplayer doesnt need gold. Also, I'm adamant that xbox live isn't subscription based anyone, only gold is.

    Nah this was on 360. But doesn't matter. No more multiplayer for me. It stopped working.

    Well that's normal. I thought you were referring to xbox live silver.
