2100 Microsoft Points | £15.50 | Game | 360

  • What: 2100 Microsoft Points
  • Where: Game
  • Current Price: £15.50

With any luck, Microsoft will replace their points system with actual money next generation. For now though we're stuck with them, so you might want to pick up one of these downloads that will save you a couple of quid over buying directly from Microsoft. It's  always handy to have some credit available in your account for those essential download game purchases or the latest bit of DLC.

Umadbro?
People selling cheap points means we get good prices on xbl. That'll come to an end if they scrap msp...

If that was true, then why can we buy £20 PSN cards for £15 every now and then? Sanebro.

If the current points were to be scrapped I'm sure that any new system would still allow account balances to be transferred to other XBL accounts without the account holders permission and maintain that MS continue to be make victims chase them for days on end for any refunds while generally being as unhelpful as possible :|

Points aren't ideal, but its much easier to market points cards with a below retail RRP, than it is to sell a PSN card with £20 on the front, at any price other than £20. Sure you can get £20 PSN cards for cheaper sometimes, but £15 is a very rare circumstance. You can always find points with a decent chunk lopped off.

There should also be advantages with currency conversions between countries, as they should only have to convert currency for the points, and not individually for every game, dlc, video, track, avatar item, microtransaction, etc. I'm not sure if it actually works like that though!

Downsides are calculating the real cost of them. My suggestion is not to bother, just start at RRP and however much lower than that it is, the better the deal is.

I personally don't care either way what they do. Points or pounds, it all comes out the same place.

What do Nintendo use? We should drag them into this too.
