    I’ll buy some of these as soon as the MSP issue is worked out. Currently, when you try to buy El Shaddai and switch to MSP, it tries to charge you 480MSP ($6) instead of 240MSP ($3). It’s charging twice as much if paying by MSP.

    Be sure to watch the points total when you pay with points. Price showed up as $2.99 for El Shaddai but it charged me 480 MS points. Double the cost it should be. Now I’ll have to fight with customer support to get my points back. Great way to start off a big sale.

    I’d be all over El Shaddai, but the prices are wrong in points. $2.99 should be 240 msp, but it comes up as 480 msp.

    $4.99 games should be 400 msp, but are coming up as 440.

    This going to be fixed?

      For those wondering, if you look at Major Nelson’s twitter feed, you can see that he has apparently let those responsible for the pricing know of the issues and it has been “escalated and is being investigated”.

        Most likely they won’t, but you have until next week to hold off. Hopefully you didn’t purchase anything already. It only effects the use of MSP.

        Sadly I did. When I saw the right cash price I never thought I’d have to double check when I swapped to MSP I mean I would have bought El Shaddai at 480 but considering it was supposed to be 240 I feel like I should get the difference back

        There’s a lot to like about El Shaddai, but if you’re an achievement hunter it could become the bane of your existence. Only 2% completion on TrueAchievements, out of almost 4,000 tracked players.

    Hey guys, I tried to buy GRID, but it says “This item isn’t available from your current location.” Xbox can detect where it is atm? :O My account is UK, but I don’t live there, but everything worked for me since I created it😦 Tried with different account, but everything is same. Now I am trying to do that with PC, but all i get is: “Sorry Your purchase cannot be completed at this time. Please try again.” ; Or when I try with different account it says its not available because its teen or child (my account is adult, at least it says it on xbox and pc when i look at it). So anyone know how to make my purchase happen? Please help!
