Pre-order ‘GTA V’ for Xbox 360 and receive 1600 MS Points

If your intent is to buy the game for Xbox 360 and you have not yet pre-ordered the game, this exclusive pre-order deal may persuade you in doing so. (Grand Theft Auto V, Xbox 360)

Didn't they just transition away from points? I know they say its for a total of $20, just strange they still measure in points.

I don't know if this makes sense to even me but maybe it's because that's what is still in everyone's head is MS Points. Still working on phasing out MS Points? Even though they just did away with them in the latest update?

This for the up top. http://www.vgchartz.com/pre...

Do research before posting ignorance the 360 is leading the sales for GTA right now.

Relax bud, this had nothing to do with Xbox bashing, just curious. Not that I really should be defending myself here, but I have both Xbox and PS3 and I'll be buying this for Xbox because I have more friends who will be online there.

Nice. And in a few months the points are wiped away.

Well played.
Cueil  +   325d ago

MestreRothN4G  +   325d ago
And then wiped away.

That is funny, my 12700 points was converted to $158 after the update. Hey, I must be one of the lucky ones. :D

Ignorant fanboys are ignorant.

“You will begin using local currency or an Xbox Gift Card (denominated in your local currency) to buy music, games, videos, and more from your favorite Xbox stores. When you use your existing Microsoft Points to initiate a purchase or redeem a Points card with your Microsoft account later this year, we’ll deposit into your account an amount of money equal to or greater than the marketplace value of your Microsoft Points, and your Microsoft Points will be retired. The purchased funds you deposit into your account after the transition will not expire. However, the funds we deposit into your account at the time of the transition will expire one year from the deposit date.”

Good deal.

Buying the PS3 version instead of the 360 version still, but hey, this is good for those who pre-ordered the 360 version .

I'm kind of trolling but, if you've ever been inside a Microsoft store you know exactly why I wouldn't go in there if you paid me. It's... depressing in there.

LOL, all the PS fanboys in and trolling as usual. MS stores always have these pre orders 1600 points pre order sale. I bought Gears of War Judgement, Bioshock Infinite, and Tomb Raider recently with this deal.

LOL, desperation?

As of 8/31/13, the pre orders total is:

X360 GTAV 1,581,146
PS3 GTAV 1,037,597

LOL, smh

This is just crazy! How could anyone spin news like this into a negative?

I remember Newegg offering a $15 discount for Halo 4 pre-orders just two weeks before release. Was that desperate or a great deal? As a consumer it's the latter. Same thing here with the MS store deal.
CrossingEden  +   325d ago
That actually is a pretty good pre-order incentive, certainly better than the second son pre-order they just announced today. I'll take a free $20 over a texture pack for a vest any day of the week. -_-

How is a good deal desperate? Stfu seriously. They did this for gears of war judgment forza horizon and fable III

Wow its £55 for UK, what a conversion rate, without the free MS points!??!
