That's actually not that bad. Glad you grabbed it and not a lurker.


Oh, no. I didn't grab it. I used the code that was in my email. Looks like a lurker snagged it. :/

It seems that the 800 (820 with survey) points were transferred to my account today don't know why today? because we're not at the end of the month...

I thought they transferred on the 15th which also wouldn't make sense for it to go through today.

So we only need to spend $100 to get 1600 points? What a deal


I know everyone is poo-pooing this deal as at regular prices for m$ it's pretty lousy. I wasn't able to get any of the $5 1200 pt cards, but I did get a truckload of 1600s for $12 a pop. After refund, I'm looking at $48 for five games, two copies of each, which isn't too bad. Also hoping Bioshock Infinite comes out on demand and I can get a punch off it (even at 4000 pts, that's only costing me $30 for two copies, which beats eBay). Anyways, I just wanted some advice on some games.

List so far:
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit: Definitely worth $5 a copy, much more entertaining to me than Most Wanted was.
Kingdoms of Amalur: Glad I didn't jump on it when the price dropped to 1600 pts. :)
Alice Madness Returns: Wasn't on my radar until the free online pass opened up the original, so $5 for both seems decent.

Maybes:
Legend of Spyro: I got a little niece that might enjoy playing a pink dragon.
Enslaved: I remember being interested in this game before it came out, but it fell off my radar.
Fight Night Champ: I really like Round 4, but not making your own boxer for the story kind of turns me off.
Rayman Origins: I know it's been on sale previously, but this works out almost as cheap as 800 pt sale prices. I keep passing on it cause I don't know which Rayman game to start with, and straight platformers get really boring and repetitive with all that jumping and dying (although I LOVE Battleblock Theater).

Probably nots, but maybe I missed something:
Dungeon Siege 3: Was tempted until I heard that co-op doesn't save progress for 2p.
Soul Calibur 4/5: I guess it was 2 that I played a ton and it looks like the Conquest mode I really enjoyed went bye-bye.
LEGO Indy 1/2, Harry Potter, or Pirates: My nephew loves Lego Batman, but I'm sure that's at least 80% Batman. I find these games terrible; crap camera, unintuitive puzzles, hard to see what's going on or where to go, boring... but if I'm at 4/5, I might pick one of these up for my bro's kids.


Full list of 1600pt Games on Demand:
http://xbldb.com/off..._checkbox[]=360

Trying not to get too pigeonholed by that list, as between now and July 15 there could be a couple games on sale that would still fill a punch.

Thanks in advance for any advice/opinions.

good list. Rayman origins is pretty great. I'd never played one before and looking at footage of earlier games in the series, this looks to be the most accessible. I'd say it has less 'jumping and dying' and more 'jumping and trying to get 100% of the "coins" in each level. watch a youtube trailer, the art style is great and its pretty decent platforming.

for those who got in on the coupon that shall not be named, its an ok deal. However I'd hope people refrain just on principle-this is a pretty weak promotion like last months was, and the more that buy in the more it shows them they are doing the right thing and should keep up with the sub par promotions. MS has had some greats sales/promotions in the last 5 years dont get me wrong, but the terrible far out weight the good, and all we can do to speak up is not open our digi wallets. /rant

What do you mean two copies? You only get one copy from On Demand :p

And Enslaved is fun, it's not something that stands out a lot, but it was pretty enjoyable and everything works well in it.

Maybe he has two Xboxes. He can buy a copy on his secondary 360 and play it there as well as his primary (or any other 360) as long as his profile is online. More info here.

he's referring to the fact he can download it on two 360s in his house, and technically be able to get 2 copies do to the way microsoft sets up DRM on downloadable games.

From the thousands of Microsoft Points spent in April for XBLA games, Microsoft gives back this amazing wonder.  Spared no expense.  Only the best programmer and graphic designer were commissioned for these badges.  After we crane lowered our collective wallets into the Microsoft pit, after tearing through that, they just surround us with such love.  Clever girl.

I wonder if they cross checked qualifying Gamertags with those that redeemed multiple 1200 MSP codes bought for $5, saw a very high correlation and figured that was reward enough.

Can anyone else take this month's survey?  It says there isn't one available to me, which makes me suspicious since there has been one every single month since the program began.

I'm seeing this, so I guess they decided to skip the survey this month >.>

 

Thanks for Stopping By!

Hello! We don't have a survey available this month, but you can head over to the GetYours page to see all the latest ways to earn.

Why would they end it when they could just make the rewards more "badges" that would take someone a few minutes in Photoshop to slap together?

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:

As you may have heard from the announcements at E3, major changes are coming to Xbox Live. One of these changes is the switch to local currency for purchases on Xbox. That means Microsoft Points will soon be retired and you'll instead be able to use money to purchase content on Xbox (see Xbox.com Points FAQ for more info).

With all these changes, it's become necessary for us to evolve the way we reward you. Starting August 1, 2013, you will not be able to earn Microsoft Points through Xbox Live Rewards any longer. Not to worry, though! Since this currency change is impacting the structure of the program, we're taking the opportunity to make Xbox Live Rewards even better. You'll continue to get rewarded for doing the things you love on Xbox Live – just not with Microsoft Points. So come back to rewards.xbox.com on September 1, 2013 for the full scoop. You can also follow us at @XboxLiveRewards on Twitter for the latest updates.

Finally, despite the Microsoft Points changes, all your hard work will not go to waste. On August 7, 2013 we'll deposit ALL your Pending Rewards Points into your account, even if you have less than 100. And if you still have Points in your Xbox account when Microsoft Points are retired, they'll be transitioned into your country's local currency. Your currency will be available for use at the Xbox Stores as usual. For more on the Points transition, see Xbox.com Points FAQ here.

So keep earning Microsoft Points with Xbox Live Rewards through July 31, 2013 – and stay tuned for exciting changes coming soon!

Sincerely,

Xbox Live Rewards Squad

Thanks for the update!  I figured they would do that as it makes sense.  Though we all know the rewards will now be lame avatar items or discounts for XBLA games.  And if they were smart, they would emphasize the punchcard concept more -- entice people to go digital, buy XBLA/GoD games, use TV apps, etc.
