Holiday Offers from Microsoft Game Studios

 

Although I tweeted this earlier today, I wanted to make sure you saw the promotion we just announced: If you spend 1600 points on select Microsoft Game Studio content, you’ll get 400 points back. This promotion is available to all Xbox LIVE members except those in Japan or Italy. Xbox.com has the complete list of eligible content and how to get in on the deal. The offer November 22, 2010.

    Did we have to register for October’s 800 point promotion? Because I spent over 3200 on non-DoTW XBLA games and still no rebate.

    @ElektroDragon – I just got my 800 points back yesterday evening. Not sure how they do it but hopefully it should be soon for you.

    Clever way to get more MGS content sold, and I’m all for buying content in the name of rebates. This is a nice impetus for me to get content I’ve been wanting to get anyway but have been putting off.
    And no, Elektro, there wasn’t any registration for the Game Feast rebate offer, unlike this one. I’m sure you’ll be getting your points very soon, if you haven’t already.

    Got my 800 points back from the last promotion last night. Also, deal of the week offers definitely qualified towards the total amount as I bought the minimum requirement to get the rebate and a couple purchases were deal of the weeks.

    I also got my October refund this week. Dropped it on Shank right away.😉
    Between that and all the sales of recent titles, I very much like the new thriftyness of XBL Marketplace. Hope it continues.

    Major, this is a lame it for Italian (and Japanese) users like me.
    I bought so many items on marketplace and I feel left out every time.

    What have we done to deserve this?🙂

    Lol, I love how sometimes you misteriously exclude a country from an offer/XBLA release.
    Is there a rational explanation for this or do you just randomly pick up some countries? There are lots of countries in Europe, why just Italy?
    I was not interested in this offer so I’m not too pissed about it, but it sucks to see this kind of discrimination… don’t you know that japanese and european people pay for the Live Gold/XBLA/other Markeplace stuff just like americans?

    Just typical. It’s all content I either own or don’t want. I literally cannot come up with content on the list I’ve yet to get adding up to 1600.
    So far I’m at 560 because I’d like to get The Writer for Alan Wake, and I am not blowing it all on avatar cack,

    What does bemuse me is why some games have content on ther but not others. Howcome Toy Soldiers avatar items are there, yet not the game itself? And of the XBLA games that are there, why not the add-ons for those too?
    I know I’d have bought the Toy Soldiers Invasion pack (400), the Snoopy map pack (80) for example.
    I was chatting with @XboxSupport and they seemed to agree with me.

    I think you should get some more content on the eligibility list, there’s some glaring omissions there and it can’t just be with me whom it makes the difference between spending nothing and spending 1600.

    Major, I haven’t been able to send a message to my friends from Xbox.com since they updated the website!

    Very frustrating. I use Xbox.com to send 90% of my messages. (usually)

    Anyone else have this problem?

    (I live in Canada, just in case you were wondering which version of the site I use)

    Please Fix!

    Okay to be fair there’s some great content there for people who don’t have it yet, I’m just picking holes.

    You can get Ikaruga in this promotion, so quit complaining. It’s probibally one of the best games on XBLA because it was originally on the Dreamcast.

    I just got my 800MSP yesterday too.
    Also, Major, when will we ever see Games On Demand games discounted? I mean, not like permanent discounts when they become less popular, but seeing Games On Demand as part of Deal Of The Week or something. Often on your Twitter, I see promotions for Games for Windows getting big discounts for retail games. Shouldn’t the Xbox community get treated the same way?

    Most of the stuff in the eligible list has been on sale in the past at 33%-50% off, which is a lot better than spending 1600 points on full-priced stuff to get a 400 point rebate.
