Official Xbox Live for Portugal sign now

Dear Sirs,

As a portuguese Xbox 360 owner and Live subscriber I really feel the time to launch Xbox Live officially in Portugal is NOW.

As hundreds of other portuguese players I bought an Xbox 360 system at its world launch date. I feel pretty comfortable in saying its the best video game system in our market but there is a huge problem (for us) with it: as many developers (even Microsoft) mentioned earlier you really need Xbox Live to take full advantage of all the console has to offer you.

As both portuguese players and Xbox Live team members are aware, Xbox Live was never released in Portugal, even though there is almost five hundred Portuguese players registered online.

When Xbox Live first launched in 2001 only a few portuguese players subscribed it but times have changed and I am sure I can safely say that the portuguese gamers are changing too and that can be seen through the figures: when Xbox 360 launched there were approximately 150 Xbox Live subscribers; now that number is 4 times bigger and growing everyday.

I would be very pleased to hear Microsoft telling us (portuguese gamers) that Xbox Live would be launching officially sometime soon as this would definitely be profitable for everyone involved.

Albeit being a small country, Portugal has informed gamers and some of them continue resisting to buy Xbox 360 just because they will not be able to take full advantage of what the Xbox 360 can offer as they will not be able to subscribe Xbox Live (because not everyone can order something from outside of Portugal). Also the issue of not being able to submit our real Personal Info (as the postal code should be from an official Xbox 360 country) can be a problem for a lot of new subscribers.

Portuguese players that already have Xbox Live will profit also as theyll be able to get support (not in English - not everyone can speak a language other than their native one) for Xbox Live and Xbox 360 also.

What does Microsoft get? Surely a few hundreds of consoles more will be sold in our territory as costumers will be able to see at our stores real Xbox Live pre-paid cards which will make their life that much easier. And then there are the games

Obviously it will be a risk for Microsoft to launch Xbox Live in Portugal: maybe it won't make a big success in the beginning but it strikes me that slowly everyone will be able to see the changes in the Portuguese way of gaming, thus pushing the acceptance of the Xbox 360 in our market.

I hope one day all Portuguese can go to a store and buy their cards to pay for Xbox Live Gold or a Xbox Live Arcade Game. Its important for a kid to go home with their new system and be able to set his own postal code at the personal info. If they have any problems with the process? No worries, just call support and therell be a familiar language on the other side waiting for them.

We are ready for what Microsoft is calling the next step of gaming, joining a new gaming stage! WE ARE READY TO JUMP IN!
