Hello, I have just mapped my student verified Dreamspark account with my Windows Live Id for my Xbox account. I am now trying to join the Indie games area but it is asking me to pay £65.00($99.00). However in the guide on the Dreamspark website it says, as a student, I can obtain this membership to the Indie area for free. So why is it still trying to charge me for it?
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Because I have been trying to get the software and necessary tools for 3 weeks. Dreamspark took it upon themselves to ask me for every type of student verification possible (including
a letter from my vice chancellor I believe) all because their end of the student sign up process was broken. I should have been able to simply use my University domain email address and use the code they sent to that email, which I did, but it failed to work
because the service was messing around so it ruined the verification process. Thus making Dreamspark think I wasn't actually a student.
So as you may imagine, I am incredibly peeved off with it all.
