Microsoft deletes mass Xbox 360 crashing claims from Forza 2 forums

"All they want is money. I demand an explanation..."

Posted June 29, 2007
In what appears to be an effort to conceal the over 900 replies gamers provided on the official Forzamotorsport.net forums about Forza Motorsport 2 crashing on the Xbox 360, Microsoft has deleted the long thread, now stating that it’s “exclusive content for registered forum users” only. However, the thread was removed entirely, even to registered members.

This comes after the thread was revealed and reported on yesterday, gaining plenty of attention. In the thread, hundreds of gamers posted their stories on what happened to the 360 when playing Forza 2, and expressed frustration, anger, and disappointment.

Gamers on the forum are not going down quietly. In another thread entitled “Was the massive thread about xbox freezing deleted?,” one user writes, “omg? You see, they don't *** care about us. All they want is money. I demand an explanation! What a bunch of pricks. Screw this, i'm phoning MS.”

In yet another thread, a user says, “I've decided to make a thread to try to get an actual count of people who've had their Xbox 360 die since their Forza purchase...” Within minutes, more gamers have begun posting away with their problems.

Microsoft whould be more than aware that deleting that will cause more uproar than leaving it there could ever have done.

I've taken a screen shot of you saying you're taking a screenshot. I'm also taking a screen shot of me saying I'm taking a screen shot as evidence that I've taken a screen shot.

I read this on another board. 900 replies, and probably 850 of them were the usual "Man I hate Micro$oft!!! Mines fine but bla bla"

Played Forza for 1 evening, then the next day I had 3 red lights. Microsoft had to increase the repair time from 15 days to 25 days last wewk as their having so many people with broken xbox's

its the disks. my mates was fucked (non lmtd) and it didnt work in mine, my ltd edition works fine in mine and his 360.

they were pressed in poland which makes me think cheap media was used. i would start my investigation here. if it was the software 100% of people would have problems.
