Well this is nice massive kudos MS makes me want to buy the game to lend my support enjoyed the demo just think the game should be more priced like garden warfare.

"Makes you want to buy the game"

Think about what you said, then think about how 'charitable' this really is on Microsofts part.

I'm not saying it's bad, but it's not exactly a case of 'good guy Microsoft' here.

Of course it encourages people to buy/play the game. It's still a pretty nice gesture, and there are other ways they could try to entice people to play so I'd say it counts as a "good guy" approach.

They aren't splashing it around the press as a "look how nice we are" campaign either. There isn't really anything to criticise here.

Honestly I get tired of these Lion vs Tiger fanboy wars, just hold tight Lion fans and you might feature in the next challenge.

So what its a start if everyone did nothing then that's a good thing ? The game makes me want to buy it but not the price not very charitable of me but I will get it at some point the demo was great, you win though evil MS yeah what was I thinking.

Then the donation will match that from every other game (ie $0)

It's a very attainable goal though.
