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.

T9X693287d ago (Edited 3287d ago )

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.

jaredhart3287d ago (Edited 3287d ago )

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.


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.

Lol. are you that stupid to realize that you are the stupid one here??

T9X693287d ago (Edited 3287d ago )

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.

"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

Gonna agree with you on that one.

When it comes to Microsoft, there's always a catch...

vicious69833287d ago

Either way I can use some extra points.

dragunrising3287d ago

I have another $20 or so more to spend :-/ I wish the Halo Reach DLC was coming out sooner.

"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.

Redgehammer3287d ago

has been at least a 30 day window in every promotion that I have received a rebate.

CrzyFooL3287d ago (Edited 3287d ago )

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!!

-Mezzo-3287d ago

WTF, why is there always a Catch.

CrzyFooL3287d ago

That's how they get you!!

Godmars2903287d ago

So are they giving you 800 points once, or every time you spend 2400 points?
