Trials and tribulations of Gamertag recovery


Either its happened to you in the past or claimed the time of someone on your friends list but recovering Gamertags has proven to be a chore. Fed up with the (way too long) 20 minute recovery process the team at THEBBPS decided to seek out another solution. In their search for answers around the Xbox 360 DRM issue the only notable solution was to access a Gamertag profile from a memory unit.

We wonder why gamers are forced to spend around $20 for a basic 64Mb unit to rid themselves of the trouble of wanting to play at another person's house with their profile. Well, mathematically it makes sense, $1 a minute for the 20 minutes it takes to recover sounds about right.

Oh, DRM. Fall in a well and die, kthxbai.
