that's actually a pretty sweet deal.
I still wish amazon would renew their $20 credit for buying new games, but 1600 ms points is pretty cool.

hopefully, i can get a good arcade game with this.

lastofgen1204d ago

don't know why you got two disagrees for what you said, but 1600 ms points sounds pretty good too.

As long as they dont announce exclusive dlc for a year I dont care if they offer 50000 points

KaBaW1204d ago

They actually do this for a lot of games.
Seems better to order from them than Amazon, anymore.

The_Blue1204d ago

Sounds like they know DLC is coming for GTAV

Done now give me my points .

I'd rather get the superior PC version that comes with free mods & better textures.

Gravitic1204d ago

GTA + PC = Superior Version? They are awful ports, GTA4 was a pile of festering unoptimised shite.

FlameHawk1204d ago

I doubt anyone will do that. I would rather go to a store and get it day 1 rather than waiting for it.

Lvl_up_gamer1204d ago (Edited 1204d ago )

Well this is just basically competing against sites like Amazon.

Many people like to save money usually at the cost of having to wait a few days for shipping.

This is targeted to that crowd that would like $20 worth of MS points to put towards DLC or other games just for waiting a couple days.

NeverEnding19891204d ago

Really? I'd much rather take the $20 bonus and get it day 2 or 3.

Microsoft's own store?? :(

I admit I like my Playstation more than my Xbox 360, but if this deal were to be on retail stores too, i would seriously not even think about the PS3 version, and just get the Xbox 360 version and take advantage of this awesome deal (granted Microsft would lose millions of money, but would have more sales for the 360 version).

Well, they can do it because it's $15 worth of credit to the user, but it works out as MUCH less for MS. Plus, they get to show it as a loss on their taxes. It probably comes out as them losing nothing in the end. Corporations have really savvy accounting people, so they can do stuff like this. If it does cost them something, it's marked up as advertising money.

Isn't 1600 MS Points $20??

I hope MS does this for retailers too. It'd be sweet to buy GTAV, then see you get 1600 MS Points, which you can use on the Season Pass if there is one, buy San Andreas on Live, or whatever you want.

guitarded771204d ago

My bad... $20. My statement still stands.
