Wait, what's going on? I'm not sure what you all are referring to with this.
Microsoft reset some Gamertags that had been inactive from the original Xbox, though people quickly started to make accounts to fill these names up again. Names freed up were stuff like 'Dictionary', and people made Silver accounts so they could claim the
tag, and then sell it on eBay. Pathetic yet true.
And doing that results in a banned gamertag (gamertags cannot be sold), so there was no real point to releasing tags. Banned tags are never removed from the system, same as gamertags that are abandoned. Why bother releasing them?
I just beat everyone to this one. I actually had a choice between "Kinectimals" and "Kinectimal". I went with the latter as "Kinectimals" sounds like I'm more then one person. Funny thing is, the guy who got "Kinectimals" was selling the tag.
