Is there any way to get games on demand to use points rather than monetary value?

How long has the "webgames" section been on xbox.com? I've never noticed it until today.

There's also a Chess game cross-platform compatible with Windows Phone 7 (Game Chest Logic Games).

Can't you just press Y to convert it to points?

*May vary outside of US

On the xbox.com "Confirm Purchase" screen, under the price should be 2 links:

Change Payment Options
Use Microsoft Points

Or if purchasing via the Xbox Marketplace website, there's a tab onscreen to switch to points.

Props to you for getting this together so quickly, while the press is still lagging behind! ;)

They have actual news/editorials/blogs to post. Spylon's site has made it so much easier.

Ok, must have mixed the dates. Will fix shortly.


EDIT:

I'm going to wait as those haven't shown up on the DotW page. I changed the date b/c I think MN got his dates wrong.

Has anyone gotten any MS points from bing in the last 24 hours? When I redeem my bing points I normally get the MS points code the same day. It's been a day and a half and so far no emails for me. I am hoping the delay is just due to the avalanche of requests for those 100 point codes.


Once it took like a week to get mine even though usually i get it within a day or so

Not a big deal, but figured I'd point it out. The Mafia 2 DLC isn't available in a special edition of the game, but in the Greatest/Platinum Hits version. Just in case anyone is confused about that.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

PB is amazing... in my top ten favorite arcade games. Can be difficult at times, as some stages require a lot of thought, but this adds to the challenge. Highly recommended.



Also, on a side note, does MN's post mean that there will be no arcade game releases either this week or next?

Ya, I came to say the same thing. It's on the Dreamcast Collection.

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

They were listed as on sale today by MajorNelson, but that has been fixed. We are still working on how the other stuff works out.

yeah thats fine. Thanks joey for all the hard work on this and the other threads. Microsoft is going hard to push out all these arcade games because if you havent heard the new xbox system is set to be shown and possibly released next year. Shown for sure, but not to sure on the release date just yet.

Which can be picked up for ~$10 on Amazon every now and then. I scored it for $9something a few weeks ago. Definitely the way to go to score these games cheapest. Crazy Taxi and Space Channel 5+2 other games that I really couldn't care less about (Sonic Adventure and Sega Bass Fishing).

I'm tempted to pick up the other DLCs besides Minerva's Den but I'm afraid it'll ruin the great experience I had with the game.

Wished these DLC sales would apply for the PC version. Would love to get Mravana's Den for 5 on the PC, but it's still 10.
