Give the gift of Xbox Live Points

Major Nelson, the Xbox Live Director of Programming, reports that now it is possible to purchase Xbox Live gift points. You can try this at Major Nelson's site.

You need to know the person's Windows Live ID for the gifting. Major Nelson has asked the team to add the ability to gift points based on Gamertag, and they said they'll work on that for the future, but for now… you'll need to know the recipient's Windows Live ID.

Why the hell is a Major Nelson infommercial classified news on N4G?


PS. Yes I own an Xbox 360, no I don't own a PS3.

Not sure about the "infomercial" part, but this is a new feature available to 360 owners, so it should be fine.
Not sure why they couldn't do this through the Gamertag in the first pace, though.

so true, i wish they i could do this with the Ps3, so i cud give my friends points or w/e instead of straight up cash.

Close_Second4041d ago do they charge for items on PSN? Is it just via credit card?

You use your credit or debit card to add money to your "wallet" (Kind of like Pay-Pal). Then you just use that to pay for things on PSN. All purchases are in cash (costs dollars not points) and are tax free (for me at least even though i do get charged tax for buying MS points).
