Microsoft are giving away 400 free Microsoft Points, all you need to down is download the Red Dead Redemption "Multiplayer Free Roam" trailer from Xbox Live, more details here. :)

Just to clarify a couple of things for people, I read on a few places that it doesn't officially start til 01:01 for us in the UK because we're in BST, and that it's not the first 5,000 people - just 5,000 at random.

Yeah, but it was Graeme "the 250GB HDD is £64.99 with no transfer cable" Boyd that said that. Probably safer to download it early!

Oh God, as if by magic:

IMPORTANT: I've double checked on the RDR download giveaway and it turns out that it IS the first 5000 people to download who are eligible

Has anyone gotten any confirmation on whether they've won or not?

EDIT: "The Xbox tokens will be sent to the corresponding LIVE ID email account, within 4-6 weeks after the end of the promotion period" which is May 10th.

The last promo they had on (with the buy 3 EA downloadable content and get 400 MS points) took quite a while from the end of the promotion so I'm guessing we'll be kept waiting for quite a while!

I had 400 points transferred into my account about a week or 2 back, only thing I can think of is the RDR promo. Otherwise I have no idea where it came from.

Did you get an email or something or did the points just appear in your account?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

I didn't get an email when they gave me my 800MSP for the summer of arcade promotion so I doubt he got an email.

Everyone should be getting an email with a theme though, regardless of points, and no one has so I doubt it's gone through yet.

Well, there was a 400 points deposit put in my account on the 4th May, the details section is dashed, whereas ones I've bought have the payment details there. Only thing I can think of is the RDR promo, unless anyone else can think of any promos I've forgotten about, and like I said, it wasn't the PD/Scrap Metal/Toy Soldiers/Games Room one as I didn't buy all of them.

Edit: And no, I didn't receive an email at all.

It's not a premium theme.
