I have juste created a whole new account and purchased a Xbox Live Gold account (1 month only, hopefully...).
I did it using the website and paid it via Paypal, and I could see that my account had been debited.
It seems that when I'm checking my account, I can see that the payment has been accepted and that I have a Gold account.
However, if I try to access Xbox Live Gold > Join Xbox Live Gold, I get this :
*Uh oh... it could have not happened*
Plus, I can access Gold content on the console (for example, downloading demos exclusive to Gold members) but I can't check if I have a current membership (it says it is unavailable). And of course, I can't play online on my games.
So what's the deal ? Is there a latency when purchasing something on the web and getting it to your console, or is this a Microsoft trick as I seem to get weird errors ?
I'll be waiting for your response,
