    Call me a fanboy, but I love it when MS looses their “exclusives”. Makes me feel all warm inside.

    The only reason you should be warm inside is to be angry – this track should absolutely have been on the disc in the first place. It’s like releasing a ‘greatest hits’ and then wanting you to buy half of the best songs separately as singles.

    Well I think Microsoft class an exclusive anything that last’s as long as the first play through.

    Blerk i think the real problem here is that you have to pay for the damn track, yes it may not be much but wtf it should have been free.
