It's not an entry. It's to sign up for the Rewards program so if you were already a member you didn't need to download it.


do you think im probably over reacting or i should pick up Bio2+Minerva's Den to make sure? Im gonna be pissed if i spent 2000 pts this month without the kickback and this is the week to buy things that go towards the special.

Pick them up if you actually want them (I grabbed both along with Minerva's den). You can do to the promo section of the dashboard and check for yourself. It says "Must be an xbox live rewards member to participate" and then under it the download link says "sign up now".

Thanks for that... i guess ill wait till late tomorrow night to see if the 300 pts show up in my rewards "queue" (thats what im calling it anyways). No big deal, Bioshock 2 is supposed to be just as good right?

As the first one? Yes and no. The story is no where near as good as the first BioShock. But the controls and gameplay are better. It's not bad by any means, but it isn't the first one.

I seriously hope this talk about needing to download the gamerpic or whatnot first before downloading shocktober games isn't true because I already purchase 1600 msp before downloading it from the console

If you were a member of the Rewards program at http://rewards.xbox.com, then yes, you're well on your way. However, if you didn't join, and only now downloaded the gamerpic, then I'm afraid that investment will not count ... they only count towards Rewards once you opt-into the program.

Its story is closer in style to that of the first one. It's by far the best piece of DLC for BioShock 2. It's definitely worth buying if you get BS2.

They said on twitter that they don't count the amount you spend in the marketplace until the end of the month. So nobody is getting points from the shocktober promo until next month.

Good to know. And I joined Rewards at the start of the program
Also, caved in and bought Bioshock 2. Now that should definitely secure me my 300 MSP. I would have purchased BS1 but I played that game already (and loved it). BS2 I haven't and it has MP which I hear is still alive and kicking so it was a no brainer.
So let's see here...
Metro 2033 (bought during sale)
RE4
Bioshock 2
DR2 Case Zero

I heard buying Metro 2033 while it was on sale doesn't count????

I didn't think Minerva's Den was radically different or better than the main campaign in BioShock 2. That's not to say that Minerva's Den isn't excellent, but I thought the main campaign was outstanding too. I'm honestly kinda not sure what people see in MD that they don't in the base game.

im gonna hold onto these points and ill pick up B2 soon. Here is hoping for a Halo 3/Wars GoD coming up!

Soooo... bit of a noob question here: I've been a Rewards member since September 29th 2012, took the October survey and got its 20 points. So far so good.

Last week, I took advantage of the discounts to pile up my points for the "spend 2000, get 300 back" rebate, so I bought Alan Wake's American Nightmare, Resident Evil 4 HD and all Bioshock 2 DLCs except for the Sinclair Solutions one, for a grand total of 2200 points. Mind you, I bought all of them through the Xbox.com page as I usually do, not through the Xbox dashboard.

The problem is, none of those purchases show up on my Rewards profile page, not even in the pending tab. Furthermore, my avatar appears updated, but my gamer picture is still the old one I had when I registered my account, so I wonder if there could be some option I'm not aware of that let me sync the Rewards page with my Xbox profile (even though I thought that should be automatic).

Should I just wait to see my points correctly credited sometime, I'm better off contacting Rewards support or am I definitively screwed for this month's offer? :(

From the FAQ - http://rewards.xbox.com/faq/#fmi

When will I receive my 300 Microsoft Points? A. All eligible Xbox LIVE Marketplace purchases will be calculated daily. Rewards Points will be posted under Pending on the Xbox LIVE Rewards site within 96 hours of meeting the offer requirements. Points will then be deposited to your Xbox LIVE account by November 15, 2012.

Yeah I guess the twitter answer only applies to the achievement level rebate as my shocktober points posted today but the rebates bonus points weren't.

Ok, crisis averted, guess I just had to wait a little more... :bouncy:
Since I'm new to the program, I thought they would add every single item to my pending queue as I bought it, but they did list a summary instead... well, I said mine was a noob question, after all! :lol:

I think I asked this earlier about whether you were eligible if you used cash to purchase some of the games (RE4 and Metro 2033 in my case). I'm hoping you might all see it my way that you would as I noticed that in the Spooky Rewards tab on the dashboard it says this:

"Get 300 Microsoft Points back when you purchase horror-themed Xbox Video Movies or TV Shows, Avatar items, Game Add-ons, Games on Demand, or Arcade Games worth 2,000 Microsoft Points or more."

Note the worth 2000 MS points. My reading of that is that they have to be worth 2000 points not that you have to spend 2000 points. Does anyone see it that way too in case I have to argue with them over it?

Whoo-Hoo !! Just got the email from Xbox Live Rewards regarding the code(s) for the FREE Halo 4 Avatar Armor for watching the debates. I wasn't expecting it this soon, but it's pretty cool to see that they've delivered so quickly.

Yes they can be both used but you have to Avatar change sex to redeem both on one account.

Darn, I was thinking about getting the Borderlands 2 season pass but it isn't qualified.
