Codes expire on march 2nd.
Wow, one dollar. I'm gonna be getting all the b!tches tonight!
I doubt money could even help your case.
Go to the 6 sec mark., Now thats what you can get for a dollar.
If ONLY McDonalds would take MS Points!!!
lol I'll give anyone $5 if they can actually go to McD's with just $1 AND buy something off their menu.
nice i can get a gamer pic thanx
Nice pic. New Tool album comming. They are also touring this summer:)
yea but the question is when the new album is coming out?
Judging by their sporadic releases in the past, there really isn't a safe time to bet on.
who knows? I guess they are working on it now. I hope spring but you never know with those guys.
It would have been nice if they didn't expire...
They could have been a little bit more generous especially since people are paying more for gold than before.
80 points isnt much but if you already have some its a nice bonus......i wounder how many people tried typing in that code
I just did, said "Please enter a valid code" instead of "Code has already been used"... suspicious.
They actually changed this semi-recently. I'm pretty sure they got rid of "code has already been used." If you follow people on Twitter who give out codes you'll run into this.
also incorrect...they didnt get rid of "code has already been used" there are 2 phrases that are used and both are true "please enter a valid code" is used when the code is incorrect OR if the valid code is not from your region (ie codes from US will NOT be valid when used on a canadian account) "code has already been used" is used when the code is from your region and has already been used so its not so suspicious
WOW GUYS, HOW GENEROUS!
better than nothing...honestly amazes me how ppl can complain about free stuff after all of that "MS doesnt give anything away" yes, given that its only 80 msp and it expires, but its 80 msp THAT YOU DIDNT HAVE BEFORE i guess MS is damned if they do, and damned if they dont...no winning with you guys
of course they are not... they give u some points with expiration date.. soo u need to charge more money to actually buy something ... its a clever way to make u spend more money...
No, idiot. You just spend your free 80 points on an Indy game, most of which cost 80 points. Then you DON'T have to buy more points like in your retarded scenario.
MS are so considerate. a whole dollar back , its the least they could do after we paid them 50$ a year for absolutely no reason seeing as playing online is free on every other platform.
It's a dollar. Actually, it's not even that. More like a $1 dollar coupon seeing as how it's expiring in a week. More like, damned if they do the absolute bare minimum, and damned if they don't.
mrbeatdown...its not the value that given, its that they are actually giving something back and this isnt the first time, there have been free full arcade games, the reward system (only in USA) free trial codes, avatar items, themes etc that have been given for free and yet its always the monetary value of said item that ppl make out to not be such a big deal yes, this $1 they gave you isnt much, but add it to the other stuff theyve also given and it makes it a bigger deal...but since right now its just this one thing and it only happens to be a dollar its nothing...but again ITS COMPLETELY FREE, so why are ppl complaining?
I'm just saying, it's not much more than an incentive to get you to buy something, like a sale or coupon, rather than actually "giving something back". If they were actually giving back, I could save it until I found something I wanted, making it actual savings. With an expiration date in just a week, it means I have to go find something I wouldn't otherwise buy. And I don't think anyone is necessarily complaining, just mocking it.
Dear Microsoft, thank you. May more money rain outside of your office and so you can provide us with better first party game this year.
MS is so smart, they over charge for everything then give you a dollar like there doing you a favour.
US only i presume?
Lame, I got 50msp from the Rewards Program and I can't even spend them. I even ask Microsoft support if there was a reason why it didn't work. All they told me is to click on a link, the link just took me back the Rewards Program page.
You have to earn 100 points before you can transfer them to your account.
That is lame, but all the support say is I should be able to spend them.
Used mine. Thanks ms.
Wow, Microsoft gives out something for FREE and half of you guys are moaning?
I bet the people who are moaning about this don't actually have a 360.
yea because they all rrod
I allways think that their up to something ( a bait ) for the hackers. This could be another trick from MS to those who plays games for free. We will see it in couple of hours or 2 days if im right or not...
Put on your tinfoil hat you nut.
I don't understand why people are complaining here: it's free, it doesn't require you to buy anything (you don't need to pay for a gold account to get this!), and it's actually supporting the indie games community because most people will just use these 80 points to buy a decent indie game (I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1, Shoot 1UP, The Impossible Game and Breath of Death VII are a few excellent games for the money)
Free is free. Maybe you're 80 msp shy of a XBLA game or DLC? These 80 get you there. I'd take a free PSN buck, lol.
awesome, now with this 80 mp i have 120 mp and ill make my first purchase and get 100 mp from the rewards program, im gonna be rich xD
Sweet! :D Thanks Microsoft.
How Do I Get This Offer ? I Checked My Inbox & No Messages From MS About This
lol, they rape u for $60 a year and then throw u a dollar lol
You can't rape the willing my friend. People who pay for Live do so because it is worth it to them.
@Reburn, You're right. I love that my PSN account is free-to-play online, but damned if I can get into a match on most games where the servers aren't super laggy. At this point I prety much only buy Sony exclusives for my ps3, like the uncharted series, gran turismo, killzone, etc.. If I'm picking up a game with an interesting multiplayer component, I buy it for 360. I think the $60/yr is worth it for the good solid connection and (mostly) lag-free play.
Funk Mcnasty you Jaws about lag on ps3 MP games some have lag like any other game. But nice try. On topic people who are complaining free i mean come on its free Tell that good solid connection to Battlestations Midway and pacific,BFBC2 Splinter cell all those had terrible problems ohh Madden still cant fix the dropping people issue. I mean tell the truth Xbox did great with cross chat because there were some games like BFbc1 that had terrible mic issues but xchat fixes all that for me.
It's def not rape..more like battered wife syndrome.
Eh.. it'll go towards DS2: Severed.
Over the year of 2010 i managed to get a free digital copy of Fable 2(by accident, but free nonetheless) Harm's Way and Dorito's Crash Course games for free......My PS3 and Wii gave me nothing, so quit b*tching
Is Ms trying to take a little thunder away from kz3? With a DOLLAR too? come on at least give them a little more than that/
this is useful for people already with points
Hey, I got my free 80 points and none of my friends did. I wonder how they selected the recipients. Once I redeemed the code it just added the points to my total, I wonder if they will expire or if I had not used the code, the code would've expired.
for your avatar with 80 points...
Sure you can. Maybe nothing good but you can get something for your avatar. Get some mittens.
Free is free. They didn't have to give out anything.
I got the bring the sky down dlc for mass effect for 80 points yesterday . not free points tho
I haven't been on Xbox Live in yonks, but I may have to pay it a visit today.
Lol, just to attract people...
Give it 10 or 20 years and you'll have to use M$ points to buy EVERYTHING ;) /s
Cheap bastards, thats not even 1 euro. After all the money i've paid over the for xbl alone, the least they could give is 8oo points. That chances of me ever buying anything on xbl have just been massively reduced
"The message explains the Game Marketplace has been enhanced and content is easier to find." I hope this isn't an attempt to add extra cost to the service we already pay for. I mean I pay for Gold and happy with it, but I would not want to tack on an extra 10 bucks or whatever a month just to find games faster.
Guys who cares, the ms are free. Stop complaining about getting free stuff. Now MS, wheres the Canadian love? LAWL.
You think they could do better than 80 points.
wow a dollar? Seriously, well at least you can buy an indie game or waste your money on stupid avatar clothing.
Its raining points!
Free is free so I can't complain. I should have waited on Super Meat Boy. That dollar off would have been nice.
