it's a little hit or miss. i had to email support about a Madden/400 point offer I received. i suspect with Summer of Arcade and this offer they are getting better at it.

email support if you don't get your points. you will get them. you shouldn't HAVE to email them...but what are you gonna do? free is still free.


What email address did you use to get your points? I was expecting the 1200msp from the Summer of Arcade promo by today, but I have not received them yet, so I guess I will email them tomorrow... :-P good job M$!

Hm... I'll get Limbo and Super Meat Boy for exactly how much I want to pay. That's cool.


Limbo (1200) + Castlevania (1200) - 800 MSP = 1600 (800 each).

is this a gold only promotion or can silver members get the points too?

Figures, I just spent around 1000 a few days ago too. I should still make it with RB2 export and RB tracks in general

Agree, it does suck, but it's probably because of some crazy accounting reason. Moving funds around, even virtual funds around, at a later date, means they can do accounting magic to make more money show up from investments and stuff. I know it sucks, but sometimes it helps to at least know there is a reason, and it's not just random.



You're right, it is accounting magic. All of these MSP have a cash value. By doing these promotions and causing people to redeem the value, then giving a refund later, they're able to juggle certain things like Revenue and Reported earning from quarter to quarter. Is it likely a drop in the bucket? yes. But every bit helps when you're trying to maximize shareholder value...


That being said, I'm glad I saw this deal. I'm going to wait a day or so to buy Toy Soldiers.... Then Claptrap revolution... then??? lol, i've got the points but not the plan.

I'm a few hundred points short of 2400. Dang it. I'd rather not spend the money for 400 points.

Awesome, and I just bought Toy Soldiers Tuesday -_-

At least I can get, the Borderlands DLC, maybe Dungeon Defenders, and Fallout 3 DLC?

Hmm... I was thinking of getting Limbo, just need to figure out what else to get. I'm getting Sonic 4 on the Wii because I have a ton of points there, so that one's out. Hmm. Either way I'll need to add another 1600 points card. So I'll be wanting to find a deal on those.

Yah, me too..I'm sure this was carefully calculated by MS to get as many people as possible that were waiting for a price drop, then hit us with the promo.

Already going to buy Alan Wake DLC (560ms) and the Undead Nightmares DLC for RDR (800ms) So I guess I could either buy one of the Deathspank games or a bunch of ME2 DLC. Costume Quest looks cool as well and certainly fits the theme of October.

That's assuming, of course, that this offer is valid for Canadians :S

Between the RB2 export, Sonic 4 and assorted RB3 DLC I'll hit this no problem.

It's 800 points, not 400. Unless you're figuring in the difference of paying for more points versus the extra 800 somehow.

Very nice! I'll grab Toy Soldiers on October 1st, and Sonic 4 for 1200 points when that comes out later this month. Then I'll just need to spend 400 points more.
I'm happy about that, especially considering how over priced Sonic 4 is. That'll help defer some of the cost.

Crap, I bought Toy Soldiers a couple days too early :[ Stupid mid-week promotional announcements. Ah well, L4D DLC, Lara Croft and something else should get me there anyway.


I did the same today, though Toy Soldiers is definitely worth buying with or without this promo. Oh well. I'm sure I can find 2400 worth of stuff to buy (Alan Wake- The Writer along with a few other things) regardless.

Sweet. I just bought the borderlands DLC, but was probably going to spend 2400 points on arcade games this month. Free 800 points :)

Easier done than said, I spend close to 4k points a month.

Thanks much, OP. With Rock Band 3 coming out later in the month, a slew of good XBLA titles, and a few Games on Demand titles I need to pick up, getting to 2400 should be quite easy for me.

Costume Quest on the 31st should cap this off nicely

He's saying he doesn't want to buy one of the 400 point bundles
