A glitch has been found on the Xbox.com marketplace that could accidentally unlock you a full game whilst you originally intended to download a demo. In a video captured by Giantbomb, they show just how the glitch works and what NOT to do – so do pay attention!
If you click on a marketplace link for a trial before logging in to Xbox.com, the marketplace link will switch to the full paid version after the login process – so if you’re not all that aware, alert or just not looking at all, you could be charged full price for a game. Microsoft is aware of the glitch and is working on a fix soon.
Quoted by Microsoft to GiantBomb:
“We are aware of this issue and the team is actively working to resolve it… We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.”
