do xbox live account expire or auto-corrupt after 3 months of non-use? that's about the summary of what i heard thru the indian accent on the phone last night.
i let my gold membership go to silver in ~october2008, and i went to re-enable it, but i couldn't connect. after fighting with it for 2 hours, i called M$ and this is basically the answer i got. it would let me connect to xbox live, but not do any account management via the console. so i pretty much had to delete my profile (losing all saved shit, etc) and create a new profile.
