[Gamertell] 800 Xbox Live Point Cards now Available

post #1 of 13

Ever want to buy something on Xbox Live Arcade that costs only 800 Microsoft points but you lack a credit card to get more points directly and dreaded spending the extra dough on a 1600 Microsoft point card that’s just 800 points too many? Never fear little precise friend.

Microsoft is beginning to roll out 800 Point cards to retailers at a reasonable (depending on what you consider the value of virtual “point†to be) cost of just $9.99.

So now you have your brick-and-mortar options between a $19.99 1600 point card and a $9.99 800 Point card.

In these trying times, it’s nice to know that the big guys are watching out for my thinning wallet. Sure they are still taking my money but at least I have the option to save a little, especially if I’m just buying a stocking stuffer (hint, hint) for a bratty nephew.

Why these wernt available from the start I dont know...

Do you mean 1600?

Eh? I guess I live in the twilight zone.

Must be the MS point thing on the Xbox dashboard I'm thinking about.
