Last month I made a post (http://www.majornelson.com/archive/2007/01/16/the-future-of-xbox-360-xbox-com-and-xbox-live.aspx), asking you for your thoughts and suggestions on how we can make the Xbox 360 experience better. This month, I’d like to kick off another conversation this time around Marketplace. The Xbox Live Marketplace (http://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/marketplace/?WT.svl=nav) is an area where the community has had some vibrant and colorful discussions. Last week we posted details (http://gamerscoreblog.com/team/archive/2007/02/01/540575.aspx) on some of the polices around Gamerscore, but I wanted to extend that to Marketplace. As you can imagine, we have some very specific guidelines and policies in place for Marketplace, but I want to open up the floor for discussion and see what the community thinks. I’d like to frame this as what should the ‘Xbox Live Marketplace 10 Commandments’ look like?
Discuss.
And not too soon.

EA was doing some massive abuse with the charging for on disc content and cheats.
