shopping spree! Plus I think you can gift points to friends. Spreading the love.

lh_swe2287d ago

Except when MS notices the error and asks you to repay the negative balance...then you're pretty screwed.

@lh_swe: They can't make him pay anything back for their mistake with the Rewards program. If they could, they would have done so every time this has happened. This isn't the first time they've screwed up like this.

Don't spend it all in one place :P

CynicalVision2287d ago

That's funny because you can't spend it anywhere else!

coolbeans2287d ago

I was worried the ':P' reference would go unnoticed.

microsoft will find about this and take back all the points

KaBaW2288d ago

Just wondering, how would they take back the points? I thought it was set..
And, if they can take back points, can they take back games bought with em?

They have started including an expiration date in the download terms... The last time you can download xbox 360 games, movies, etc is in 2019.

So basically, your download items are only borrowed until 2019.

I am ambivalent about this, as I am sure I will have moved onto some other gaming platform by then.

gamingdroid2288d ago

It would be nice if they allowed you to download it longer, but let's face it... in 8 years, you aren't likely to be playing your Xbox 360.

If you do, you should just make sure to download all the content before that and keep a backup.

SuperStrokey11232287d ago

Yeah I suppose but do you really think they will let you transfer licenses that you bought on the 360 to the next console? Not a chance.

@B1663r "The last time you can download xbox 360 games, movies, etc is in 2019. So basically, your download items are only borrowed until 2019."

Just meaning they aren't required to keep the download available online for you to re-download anything you purchased after 2019. If you have the game you still will own it and be able to play it.

It's not like you have to download each game every time you want to play it.
