It's a good deal if you plan on spending that much (which I won't be) so I don't see the problem. :?

How much is 300 points? Less than $4?
#7 Posted by TheDidact (3981 posts) -
They probably consider stuff like Call of Duty Zombies and RE6 to be horror stuff. :lol:

That just gives you more options to get the 300 points back if you were already gonna spend 2000.

Not too bad if you're looking for that stuff. Personally, I have no interest.

According to you.

If someone is planning to spend 2000 points or more anyway, getting 300 points back for things they were going to buy anyway is not "pathetic".

Oh snap, Microsoft's on a roll!

I bet they're feeling extra kind this year.

They're probably giving out all the goodies before the next xbox comes out. I'm sure the 10 Microsoft point rewards people get for free will be a deal breaker when choosing a PS3 or 360 in the meantime.

If they aren't giving me full retail games for free don't waste my time. I am still mad after paying to go Gold this week just for Halo 4 and GOW: Judgement next year.

People are just laughing at Microsoft's idea of rewarding their customers.

Spend $25 or more on anything you want, and they'll give you $2-$3 back.

Oh lord, $3! I can probably buy a small coffee with that! Oh wait, they're MS points, I can't even get a friggin' coffee! Oh well, I guess I'll just spend the money on clothes for my avatar (aka donating to the Microsoft Xbox Charity: ripping people off since 2005).

Not a bad deal, but hardly worth it for under $4, lol.

As opposed to spening $25 and getting nothing back?

Geez, Microsoft can't win with you people. If they give nothing back, they get bashed. If they give something back, they still get bashed.

Well with all the money they're making off of their XBLG audience they should at least give them something worthwhile, you know?

Nah, they'd probably make you pay for that too.

Along with a punch in the face DLC.

Can't wait to see the points system gone. Isn't it leaving soon? Currency conversions get old. :P

OT: Hey, sure beats nothing!

#28 Posted by darkspineslayer (19751 posts) -
Not sure how this is ownage one way or the other. 2000 points is what, $30? PSN is offering $10 back in November if you spend $100 in October. Same difference.

Amazing.

Thank you Microsoft.
