picked up 3rd strike yesterday and all the skyrim stuff today. Alwyas love SF3 and I've love to play it again to get achiveos.

And Skyrim I won that Last March STILL haven't gotten to it. Hear it's amazing though so might as well buy the DLC at 1/2 off XD

Xbox Support refuse to give me my 120 MSP back for Hearthfire paid 320 instead of 200 meh..they say they have no option for doing so =P so all this people who bought dawnguard for 1200 didn't get refunded 400 MSP today? I call bullshit =P

lol, they totally lied to you, I had a problem a while back and the girl helping me credited microsoft points to my account for my trouble


Agreed ... call (or chat) them back, and explain to them the pricing difference. Remember folks that you're often talking to India-based support rep's on Tier 1, and if they're only using your purchase date, with no understanding of what the promo is, or when the pricing changes kicked in, then they're powerless to help you. Now that they've heard similar complaints from others by now, if you call (or chat) back, then they'll have more info to go on.

BTW, I'm working on, but have yet to complete, an automated Excel spreadsheet which compares purchases against your purchase history. If you're like me & have duplicate purchases on your account (either due to the "Sales & Specials+" app double-billing you, or other posting errors such as "Bully" GoD currently), then the spreadsheet will highlight them. There will be some work on your part, especially if the GUID codes (MS's internal tracking of each downloadable asset) are different, because sometimes an item gets replaced (and the GUID code changes), or sometimes item names just aren't that descriptive (like "Season Pass") ... but I hope to have it done "soon" (within the week?) so that everyone can maybe get some points back in early 2013.

Lastly, I noticed in Kinect Central that the applet "Prize Driver" has a limited-time trial of "this week only". It's certainly not a "deal", since the full title is still 240pts, but if you want something to try today (before 2am Tuesday), it's there. :)

BTW, if you were affected by the Cloud Save crash of 12/30, you're getting a free month of XBL Gold ...

December 31st 2012 12:22 am PT
Thank you for your patience

I wanted to update everyone that the Xbox LIVE Cloud Saved Games feature is back online. The Xbox Operations team has been working around the clock to get the issues resolved. I also wanted to pass along the below note from Alex Garden and let you know what we’re doing for those that were affected by the issue.

We want to thank all of our Xbox LIVE members impacted by the Cloud Saved Games service issue for your patience and understanding. It took longer than we expected to get back to full performance as we needed to ensure the integrity of everyone’s game saves. Whether you couldn’t access your game saves for a couple of hours or a couple of days, we sincerely apologize for the delay and inconvenience. We will be automatically applying a one-month extension to the Xbox LIVE Gold memberships of everyone who was impacted. We can assure you we’ll also be doing a thorough post mortem to help prevent this from happening again.

As always, I welcome your feedback. Game on!

Alex Garden
Email: Alex dot Garden at Microsoft dot com
General Manager, Xbox LIVE

BTW: You don’t need to call support for your free month. We know exactly who was affected and we’ll handle all of this on our end.

Just stay out of the game for a few days so you don't overwrite any save-games. XBL aren't entirely helpless, and they (meaning Azure) have backups for this kind of thing, you know!

This is what I want to know, I have saves on my cloud and I noticed yesterday that it said offline, but I didn't need to use any of them.

It might be greedy but I think if you have cloud saves you should get the free month.

Hey, I said it was greedy. Besides, it would cause a problem if I actually needed those saves.

And I'm pretty sure mine has been down before just yesterday, every time I had to pick my storage recently, it said offline, and I checked and I have it enabled.

Still deciding on RB3 and Wrecked Revenge Revisited since I already have all that Skyrim stuff. Q: If I get the RB3 GoD do the songs export to any of the other games (since there's no manual & code)? I'm most specifically interested in if they export to RBB and vice-versa.


There's been talk from Harmonix (either on the RB site or quoted from the guy that runs RockBandAide.com -- sorry I'm useless for sourcing lately) that the GoD version of RB3 will be exportable... in the future. To my knowledge, only RB1 and RB2 are importable into RockBand Blitz (and all of the DLC upto and including this point, of course).

I'm unclear on whether you already have the game on disc or not and you're just deciding on getting the downloadable version or you don't have the game at all, but the interface is completely revamped over RB2 with a Rating System now, which is great for singling out songs you never EVER want to see on a random playlist challenge (I'm looking at you, half-the-tracks-from-my-Track Pack discs) and that alone is a good reason to upgrade from RB2.

Someone else had the question earlier if RB3 upgrade is worth it, and I vote YES, with the exception of Career Mode now being linked to your GT and not just the "bands" you create now; I feel it kills some of the replay but the interface is worth it until the next game comes out.

Wondering this as well. I was affected because I was literally trying to use it for the first time not knowing about the issue. I was working on updating my daughters new xbox and transferring files to the cloud to use them on both xboxes.

I got SF3 last year (also on december) and it's a great port. There are a lot of people playing it online, so you won't have any problems to fully enjoy it.

Also, chievos are not that hard aside of the tournament one (you need three more players for that, I asked to some of the people I played vs with to help me).

PD: I hate chievos where you need three more people online, btw.

As for me...

Bully
Dust
The Walking Dead

Passed on Sonic Adventure 2 because I haven't even truly played the first one and sonic games go on sale fairly ofen so Ill wait till then. I also wanted RockBand 3, but Im more guitar hero so that too I passed on.

Im debating on Peggle. It too goes on sale quite a bit, but I have quite a few msp saved due to me not buying as much as I thought I would.

BTW, if you don't have Bully do yourself a favor and buy it. Great game, only 3 GB's, and pretty easy achievements make it an easy buy.

Right? never before have I amassed such a large amount of cheap ms points, nor have I ever bought so many titles in such a short amount of time. I think I bought more during this sale than I have on xbl and psn for at least the last six months.

In the meantime, I have 1800 points begging me to figure out how I'm gonna divide them up between Sonic E4P2, Jet Set Radio, Naughty Bear, Deep Black, Backbreaker Vengeance, and Wrecked. Hmm...
