Microsoft announced today that they are giving away a total of one million Microsoft Points to celebrate the joining between Games for Windows, Xbox.com, and the Games for Windows Marketplace.
WHAT 9000!?! THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!
OMFG OVER 90000???? LOOK AT THIS!:
Forget the above. N4G handles such code and spam stuff. Mark it as spam! Sorry!
THeres no way that can be right....CAN ITTTTTTTT!?!?!?!!!
It's 400 per person making a total of a million. "Earn 400 free MS points" - Why couldn't that be the title? Oh yeah, it wouldn't have gotten as many free hits. Also "giving" them away is an interesting choice of words, because you have to buy a game before you get them. Should have known really.
Interesting choice of words indeed, however an extra 400 MS points just for buying a game you want is a good deal anyway.
For a second I thought it said MS is giving a a million "PSP" lol.
i should've known, MS never gives anything for "free"
No company really gives anything away for free. But I do agree this offer is very lame.
Ya and 400 points isn't enough for anything that s good on the store.
lol, two rockband songs. Hardly warrents the words "One Million" in the headline for the "giveaway"
Yeah it's like saying here's your free steak for five bucks :/
Actually theres plenty of reduced price DLC and reduced price arcade games on the XBL marketplace that makes your 400 go a long way.
Just change those words from "MSP" to "dollars" and then consider me signed up like long ago.
ya i know its like a 1000 bucks!
damn that's not over 9000 :( </3
It's actually $12,500.
ffs, so misleading, i thought they were going to give it to one person
agreed, that's what i thought, it kinda pissed me off, it was so misleading haha. I was like " oh.. I should have saw that coming"
Misleading title lol
Lawl its the name of their giveaway!
ya first i thought this article was gonna give a million ms points 2 one person, but actually to 2500 ppl, and each person recieves 400 points
no wonder this article is now a hit, cuz it was misleading, wish xander756 changed da title
No reason to change the title when Microsoft's newsletter is titled "We're giving away a million Microsoft points!" That's how it showed up in my inbox.
Good for those GFW people I guess. *slow clap*
Wow..at first I thought this was a million point contest, then it turns out that it's the first 2500 that makes a purchase after a specific date for only 400 points....THEN it turns out the code will be sent out 4-6 weeks after the end date. So overall make a purchase and have to wait 1 1/2+ months at most to gain $5 back.
This motivated me to finally download all the free dlc packs for fable 3... THATS 9 PURCHASES! I better win...
I finally picked up Gears of War for the PC. It's only available on GFW... Who knows though, a sale might come up closer to Gears 3 release.
Typical of M$ only do this comp in the US, why don't give other people in chance to win something in the UK or Canada?
That's because you don't exist. After the coast line of the USA there's nothing but ocean :P
See, I'm Aussie, so I'm a figment of my own imagination. I'm not really typing this message and you're not reading it.
Lol, that was one of the funniest things I've never read.
Because the UK and Canada have more red tape to cut through with regards to contests and giveaways.
Hey pc guys, I think I am ready to join the pc gaming movement and I want to build me a decent rig. The only thing is I have no idea where to begin and I have a few questions about the games they are able to play and of course what i would need to get started. does any 0ne know a good web site with a tutorial or something to help me out?
the basics http://www.youtube.com/user...
msp = Monopoly money, there's your proof
Their prices are absolutely ludicrous, Batman Arkham Asylum $90, while the GOTY version is $50. Dirt 2 $90, on Steam it's $20. They wonder why nobody buys game from them. (I'm Australian so our prices might be higher than US)
People actually read the title and believed they were giving it away to a single person? Holy f*ck, people are dumb.
When I first saw this I thought they would give 1million MSP to one person as a raffle or something, but then realized I had to get a PC game to get 400 points(or $5), I got kinda sad.
Ha.I'm a little embarrassed I believed they were giving these out for free.also quick question which console should I get elder scroll 4 on?(no PC version)
I better quit gaming, then use Games for Windows.
I already get free Microsoft points because i'm part of the MS Rewards club. hurp
Microsoft performing some major lip service lmfao!
