Xbox Live has a great deal going on right now…with a catch.
Well, they are in the business of making money. A good deal considering the Undead map pack and Halo map pack are coming out this month.
Halo map pack doesn't come out until the end of next month, not this month. Edit: lol :) Either way, free points is free points, can't go wrong if you plan on buying some anyway.
Yeah, dammit. oh well Edit: I'll give you a bubble. See you are moving on up from the one bubble crowd
the Xbox Live subscription fee. Lol. paperwork?? no its a plan to get you to have Xbox live until they increase the sub fee. @T9X69 and u need Xbox Live subscription to buy stuff. Lol. so in order to use the MS points you just bought for xbox, you must keep your XBL active despite the price increase. "sometimes i wonder people can be this stupid or just playing dumb. the stupidity of people like you blow my mind."-T9X69 Lol. are you that stupid to realize that you are the stupid one here??
Sometimes I wonder if people are really that stupid, or just playing dumb. XBL Subscription has NOTHING to do with MS points. MS points aren't going up in price and it's not a trap because you don't need XBL Gold to purchase MS points. The stupidity of people like you blow my mind. EDIT: No you don't buddy. You can have a Silver Account and still purchase MS points to spend on what ever you want. Here, I will even redirect your stupidity. http://www.xbox.com/en-us/l... "Why Do I Want to Use Points? Points let everyone on Xbox LIVE—Silver and Gold members—pick up content to enhance their entertainment experience, opening up the Marketplace to everyone in the world that is connected to Xbox LIVE. But the big deal here is that Points allow what technical types call "micro-transactions." ;"
How's there a catch to this? You have to wait a month, big deal. When I get a mail in rebate from a store or when I buy a new cell phone, I usually have to wait almost 3 months! I don't see a catch here, especially since nowhere does it say you get those points instantly. ComicJumper, Super Meat Boy, Alan Wake DLC, are all worthy of picking up. Getting an extra $10 for buying something that I already planned on purchasing is a great deal.
@ImpartialMan you don't need Gold to buy points and you don't need Gold to buy stuff. Seriously dude if your going to troll get up to date on your facts. Go take a nap @T9X69 bubbles for U
@T9X69 Gonna agree with you on that one. Hate it when people spread misinformation.
When it comes to Microsoft, there's always a catch...
Either way I can use some extra points.
I have another $20 or so more to spend :-/ I wish the Halo Reach DLC was coming out sooner.
WHAT'S THE CATCH!? HOW DARE YOU MAKE ME CLICK TWICE ON N4G!!
"you’re going to have to wait until the end of November before you get those 800 points." Not that bad but still a bit weird.
has been at least a 30 day window in every promotion that I have received a rebate.
So I'm forced to used XBL for an extra month? That ain't so bad, guess it's worth $10. It's my money and I want it now!!
WTF, why is there always a Catch.
That's how they get you!!
So are they giving you 800 points once, or every time you spend 2400 points?
Nice, a rebate for microsoft points. What will they think of next?
This is how they always do it, had to wait til September for the Summer of Arcade one
far, I have received 2300 point in rebate from various promotions, incluiding the SOA. It is always nice to get a rebate and it is very nice when points just appear out of "no where".
The catch is.... YOUR SOUL! FATALITY
Buy games and play online for free with them. That could be good too no? No?
Where is the deal actually posted? Can some one post a link? Thanks. There should be a source in the story.
The source is your own Dashboard buddy. :) If the offer is available in your country, you just have to log in to see it.
"Well, still not a bad deal and you have to remember, nothing ever is completely free." It's still free if you have to wait a month to get it, jackass. How the hell do these articles make it to the top 5?
Why is that a catch? Considering Super Meat Boy and Costume Quest hit for 1200 each on the same day thats my 2400 done in a day, making both the games techically cost me 800 each - great stuff!
