anyone see that ad on xbox live?

i couldn't click it, but one of microsofts ads said something like "claim your share of 1 million microsoft points"

does anyone know whats up with this? (i assume it's some promo thing for the new xbox experience, but i can't find any info about it other than that stupid little ad)

Well MS points is money that doesn't really exist, so giving away money that MS don't have...sounds like the credit crunch...

Well if that's true then I wanna know how lol. But it says claim your "share" of 1 million microsoft points so I'm guessing they split it up for a lot of people so you wouldn't be getting 1 million points all for yourself although that would be nice.

If you were awarded 1 million for yourself you could buy everything on xbox live marketplace! The Market on has 697,288 MS points worth of stuff.

I doubt that they will be giving each person 1 million ms points but if so , its probably because they will be adding lots of new stuff to live after the update comes

Maybe it's advertising contests in which you can win 1,000,000 MS points or all contests together has that many points for users to win? They have that 1 in 100 or whatever game maybe there;s going to be others.

lol it's not 1 million points for 1 user (thought that would be obvious)

it's 1 millions points being given away.. some download and win thing, but it's not up yet.

that's about all i've found out so far.
