1mil ms points is almost $12,500 usd

but im sure that if many ppl start downloading for the contest (using their ms points) that MS would just make up more than how much they are giving away...which is what usually happens with this kind of thing

Cool idea. I guess they do have some neat ideas even after there epic bill gate shoe commercial.

Lol, am I the only one here surprised that there are no fanboys or practically no comments on this article, yet it involves Microsoft and giving things away? And it's at a pretty hot temperature?

I downloaded a couple things, Castle Crashers, Braid. I hope I get some of those points. I could really buy some of those new XNA community games coming up.

Is there even enough stuff to spend $6,250 on in the marketplace, because that's what 500,000 points cost. I could see that whoever get's this will have some troubles from their internet provider claiming that they use up too much bandwidth and will probably cut their line like what comcast does to their customers.

is every purchare an entry? or only one per person?

SixZeroFour3657d ago

im pretty sure every download counts as an entry for you...or else that would really suck if it was one per person

I could make some serious damage with those points.

SixZeroFour3657d ago (Edited 3657d ago )
