Can't play certain purchased games offline.

My Xbox Live account was up for automatic renewal recently but I don't really play online much so I didn't bother to put money on my pre-paid VISA thus letting my Live account expire.  What I didn't know is that all of my indie and arcade games are no longer playable.  When I try to play them I get a "you must be signed into Xbox Live to play this game" message.  So really this post is not to seek support because from some online research I already know that the only way I can play these games, GAMES I PAID FOR, is if I sign up for another year of Xbox Live.  This post is just to say that Microsoft sucks and what they're doing is illegal and total bullish*t.  Thanks for robbing me of my money ****!!!!  ESAD!

nope

you just have to pay for your promised payment

if you do not want to pay for renewal you just had to call support to cancel

according to the law you must give notice to the provider of cancelation

this is how bills work the only time you dont have promise of payment is when you go prepaid membership cards

 

you can access the games as long as you sign in you do not need to be gold but you do need to be loged into live

since you are probably suspended for payment options you need to pay off the outstanding balance and call support to cancel the autorenewal

 

if that was illegal then no businesses would be in business right now

as autobilling is normal and it is upto the customer to cancel

 

a promise is a promise xbox does allow you to turn off autorenewal by calling to cancel or doing it on the website

Your Xbox Live Account maybe suspended due to Non-payment for your Xbox Live subscription. Once your Xbox Live subscription is suspended and seems like your Arcade games licenses are not associated with your console since you can't play them offline. What you need to do is pay off the balance once your account is resumed. Do a license Transfer on your console. After doing so your arcade games should be playable offline.

I will tell you now.  NO Xbox Indie Games Offline, this is due to ratings issues.  It is what Xbox has always done to the little guys.  Arcade games you shouldn't being having an issue, unless you changed to a new xbox and forgot to do a License Transfer.  If you want to transfer licenses, please read support.xbox.com/.../download-content after you do that, delete the game that is having the offline issue, and redownload it.  It has nothing to do with being a GOLD Subscriber.

I just recently found this out .... Im not very happy about it but there isnt much I can do . It should let you play Arcade Games and Trails but nothing more than that . Which blows because I wanna play my Indie Version of Minecraft but I have to be online all the time to do it ..

I am having a similar issue but not with gold or anything.. I bought Assassin's Creed 3, Fable 2, Mirrors Edge, and a few other games that I cant play offline, these are not indie games or arcade games or trials or demos these are full(not to mention full price) xbox 360 games that I PAID for so why cant I play them without an internet connection like any game I have on disk? that is bull... also I have gold membership..is there maybe some kind of license transfer I have to do?

Obviously there is no answer here because Microsoft knows what the heel their doing. They just don't care. Why should they anymore? They have fanbase, a new console.  They aren't and obviously haven't been about righteousness like back ib the day. They just toy with 360 players uniil they close all lobbies forcing you I to the xbox one gaming processes. Thabks Microsoft.  I always thought about quitting gaming all together. That or I'll just go back to GBA. At least then im not bull******* and lied to and can PLAY THE GAMES I F****** PAID FOR.
