Bought my son a Gold account card (or rather he bought it, with his money!) and thought "oh, he could get some points back for that". So I went over to sign him up for the rewards programme, only to be told that he's not allowed to join because he's too young.|
That seems more than a little unfair to me. He's old enough to spend the money but not old enough to qualify for the (tiny) rebates? For shame, Microsoft. I wish I'd lied about his age in all the sign-up stuff now.
did anyone else have a message from LIVE (on the console itself) saying that they'd been given a month free due to issues with the Cloud save service?|
I had one this morning. I've had some issues but believe they were game side (The Walking Dead)but didn't complain to anyone.
You dare to strike Scurrcules!?
Nope! I don't even have cloud saves set up, though.
Incidentally, regarding the incident above - it seems you have to be 13 before you can sign up for the Rewards programme, which is shit. You might want to bear that in mind if you're ever creating accounts for your own kids and perhaps be a little economic with their birth dates.
Obviously the rewards questions are always a bit of a joke, but missing out the original Wii in the 'family gaming' questions at the beginning seems nuts.|
I know, I'm thinking about it too much, just gimme the 20 moonpoints.

Some months back, maybe even October, my Forza 4 save was knackered and I had to arse around with getting my girlfriend to log on as me at her place and move saves around and force a sync before I could continue where I'd left off. I've also had a few games freeze on launch/repeated cloud save accessing cycle which was usually fixed by rebooting. Aside from the Forza issue none of it bothered me too much.
Now if only they could fix it so my dashboard doesn't hang for a minute without loading anything on screen on login or if my play and charge lead wouldn't light green and the dash tell me it's 3/4s full, then when I shutdown stay on until I pull the lead. I have the bastard permanently plugged in now :S
Well, have claimed my 20 survey points. Basically a reworking of a previous survey asking what you'd like to see more of on the Rewards programme. Short and sweet.|
Was also briefly interested in the 10 MILLION MS POINTS GIVEAWAY for CALL OF DUTY fans, but it turned out that they're only 'giving away' these points to people who buy the latest CODblops 2 DLC. So it's more like a discount on the content, but only if you rush to buy it, than an actual give-away.
Survey was pretty easy to fill in, instantly hit the bottom rating on what I thought of the whole thing, it used to be worthwhile but now seems fairly pointless.|
Oh well I've got my amazing 20 points to look forward to when it's my birthday in a few weeks.
This space left intentionally blank.
Don't forget to SURVEY!|
They've added some regions to Rewards Eligibility, so if you happen to have a Hong Kongorian or Singaporean account, you can sign that one up, too.
Next month, and I'm just copying from Destructoid:
Play 20 hours of any combination of arcade games, receive a free avatar item
Purchase any four Arcade games for 400 Microsoft Points or more from Xbox Live, receive a one month Xbox Live Gold membership
Spend 3200 Microsoft Points on Arcade games, receive 800 Microsoft Points in return
Someone harass the Rewards Twits and ask about XBLA DLC.
Don't forget to answer the questions about how great xbox music is.|
Does anyone know if DLC is included in the above offers yet? Might be time to take the plunge on some Pinball FX packs if it is. I'm just gutted that I forgot the golden rule of arcade game buying: Never drop 1200 points on a game in the last week of the month.
Velim esset mundus iustus futuis procul et mori.
|Trying to work out how it works out the 5 hours of arcade play, as I have a few games I haven't even started yet (and in 2 cases didn't even realise I owned) and might start playing for this - but if it just means 5 hours with a game open I may just wire a pad up and leave it overnight 4 nights running...|
new survey out...|
Windows Phone / Smartglass stuff this time, and not a single mention of Kinect!
Cheers, I always seem to forget unless I see this thread bumped.|
So I guess it's 6 months of WP and Smartglass now? maybe there'll be some next xbox stuff in there after it's announced.
Portable view - Never forget.
|NO NO NEVER|
|Yeah you're right, more likely it'll be about how often you use the Pizza Hut app and what's that? you don't? ok so how did you find it? what you've never used it at all? ok so how would like it improved? you STILL haven't used it? oh ok, so would you use it again? etc|
Portable view - Never forget.
|I mean this month's survey answers. 1) NO 2) NO 3) NEVER. Finish!|
|For those that filled out the punch cards you should get rewards at the end of the month.|

|No, Yes, Never here I think were my answers...|
Lie with passion and be forever damned...
I'm going to guess this month's questions are:|
1) Are you not masturbating?
2) Have you ever been caught masturbating?
3) When do you stop masturbating?
If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

Anyone else having issues with Live rewards not being put into their account. I have had 480 pending since May 1st. |
I thought I would have got then on the 15th, but as yet no.
"Duffman is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"
|I got an email with my codes for an av prop and an extra month of gold but no 800MSP yet but then i was told i would get that around the end of the month on twitter.|
Bump for Mr Brett, and to ask a question.|
Does anybody know what happens to any pending points if you let Gold expire? Nothing mentioned in their faq/tou and a quick google didn't find anything either.
|I don't think you need gold to amass/deposit points do you? I thought rewards for totally available for silver, albeit with hefty re-subscription bonuses for gold|
|Thanks for the thread bump folks, it's about all that ever reminds me to answer these stupid questions each month now!|
