This isn't a bad deal if there's enough solid DLC out there. I might now have a reason to pick up Limbo...

Spend the points now, then they ban you, then you have to buy another box to obtain your free points!
Good plan MS!! jester.gif

I called the support in Sweden and they had NO idea what I was talking about. The guy I talked to even went and spoke with some teamleader and he hadn't heard of it either. I gave them the direct link and they were very surprised. tongue.gif

Anyway, they didn't give me any points back. I thought they could do it as "good-will" as I've spent just over $1100 on XBLA games and other DLC (subscription fees not included), but NOES.

Cheap bastards.

LOL it doesn't effect me but I don't spend that much money on DLC overrated rubbish anyway but I think the PR department needs to bash heads. It reminds me of this,

This is how dumb people can get when they release such statements,

It'd be a solid deal if it wasn't for the lame stipulations involved. Examples:
  • 1 per person
  • received AFTER the promotion period
  • takes up to 4 weeks to process <--- why? when I buy points at FULL PRICE, they come in immediately.
  • ..."while supplies last" <---Someone explain that please. lol.

For the uk theres no mention of it on the uk xbox site. I know it "seems" to be for uk residents too but why not advertise it on the dash or something, Hmmm want to invest but need to be sure.... blink.gif
