    I thought Moto GP was an XBox Live title?

    I bought it off a guy here on the forums, but only played it in single player, and only the once.

    So I sold it on ebay and described it as XBox Live enabled.

    Well the buyer is complaining that he has it, and it isn't Live enabled.

    What is going on? It was the Classics version of the game.

    You need a disc that came with the starter kits before mate.
    The game can only be played on live with this disc & i'm not sure if you can still get it?

    Let me check this.

    I've got the XBox Live disc with the Moto GP playable demo on it. I thought this was a cut down version of the game.

    Is it only that which can be played with XBox Live, or does this disc unlock the proper retail game for going on Live? I'm sure I've read on here about people playing through the game to unlock better bikes for on Live.

    Thanks for the info so far - I've got a very unhappy ebay buyer! :suicide:

    If you send him the disc he'll be able to go on live then when he makes a rider & unlocks tracks ect on the single player game he'll be able to use them on live.
    If he hasn't got the tracks unlocked he'll race as a ghost on live.

    Simple sent him the disc he now has a live game :smashin:

    :mad: The idiot is complaining that it shouldn't work like that, and that the ebay ad said it was Live enabled and that he demands a refund.

    I've got a good feedback record, but I'm quite tempted to let it suffer a bit given the serious attitude this guy is giving me via email.

    Oh well, a neg on the way.

    He's a bit barmy - he still can't tell me exactly which Live functionality he is missing, and is complaining he won't be able to play against his friends.

    The fact that all his friends will play the game the exact same way seems lost on him!

    He ain't getting a refund or the demo disc - he's already left the neg feedback.

    Not to worry, as I've been winding him up about via email, at least I've got his money to go and drown my sorrows with. :p

    Unfortunatley you can't pick your customers on Ebay and some have different value systems to yourself. I say live and let live and try to get on with everyone. However, this guy is a $%*&£$ nutcase.

    It's a shame when it happens, happened to me once and I gave the guy a refund (for a GFX card he said was knacked but was still working perfectly when I got it back, sold it again for more to a guy who was chuffed with it!). At the time I didin't want the neg feedback but I'm in the 50's now so could take one or two.

    You mean other than complaining bitterly it isn't an XBox Live game (and leaving feedback to that effect), even though thats exactly what he's selling it as? :mad:

    When you listed it did you say you need the demo disc like he has? if so then i can see why you'd be ****** off.

    No, I didn't say that.

    It's like complaining that RS3 isn't a game that accepts voice commands because you don't have a headset. :rolleyes:

    All you need is the contents of the XBox Live starter kit. And I did offer to send him my disc if he'd lost his.

    But no, all I got from him was major attitude because he wouldn't be able to play against his friends - even though they must be doing exactly the same thing in order to play.

    I see what you mean but if i was to buy that game off him now not knowing anything about live, i'd know i need an extra disc to get on live from how he's listed it.
    Where as when he bought it from you he had no idea he needed the disc so he felt let down.
    There was no need for the bad attitude as you did offer to send him the disc.
    Report him to ebay but i dont think they will do anything.

    Let us know what happens :)
