Top 100 Games Reviewer

I won't go into too much detail of what these cards are for, others have already covered that.

Basically these cards give you Microsoft Points (not to be confused with points that can be achieved through playing the games) which can be used as credits in XBOX Live Marketplace. There are various things available, themes for your console [which I'd never spend money on personally], games (many of which are 'retro' games given a facelift and in the future videos and even movies and TV episodes.

The games are what its all about so far, and some of them are very good indeed.

However onto the added benefit of using these 'scratch cards'. You don't need to use these, you can give Microsoft your bank details and buy points directly through your XBOX. It works. However reading through the small print Microsoft basically reserves the right to keep your card on file and (assuming you're already an XBOX Live GOLD subscriber) will use your bank details to keep you subscribed to GOLD; I don't like that - I consider it sharp business practice (though the small print in the T&Cs says they'll do this; the problem is you can't opt out).

(Note as of now when I write this review it is not possible to delete your card details either, so they really have you trapped into a service you might not want in the future).

So - if you want points to spend then buy these points cards, it's a lot lot safer. Plus of course you save £1 each time you buy.

I'd follow the same logic for the XBOX Live Gold membership cards and use those instead of sharing your bank details with Microsoft.

Hope this helps!

Aye, it's 2100 points for the price you would pay for 2000 off live.

Just wait a couple of days you get 100 free points.

I downloaded a sausage roll off xbox live and ate it :)
I think they stopped doing them now though coz someone got salmonella or something.

Buy it!

 Great Value

This is a points card for Microsoft points on your x box 360. All you do is input the code on the card and the points are attributed to your account.

You can use these points to download Xbox Live arcade games, Added content to games such as extra multiplayer maps and weapons and extra vehicles etc. music tracks and video's off market place. This is the best point to pound ratio offer i've found.

Play.com 1 point = £0.81 £16.99 = 2100 points
Xbox.com 1 point = £0.85 £42.50 = 5000 points (same for all options)

as you can see the saving might be small per point but when ya taking 2100 points its pounds!!

The points are deffinately worth gettin as the added content will prolong the longevity of any games life span and keep you playing for longer. Thumbs up

 Good things come to those who wait

If you buy Microsoft Points off Xbox Live Marketplace, you'll have to buy either 500 (£4.25), 1000 (£8.50), 2000 (£17), or 5000 (£42.50) at a time.

If you could buy 2100 Microsoft points off the Marketplace, you'd be paying £17.85, as Microsoft charge us 85p for every 100 points. Here on Play.com, you're saving only the 85p, but it adds up in the long run!

If you planned to spend £17 on Microsoft Points straight off the Marketplace, you'd get 100 less, and you can still get some decent stuff for 100 points! The best example would be a special Rock Band track!

If you're not in a hurry to get Microsoft Points, and you're happy to wait for three days at least, then by all means get this!

 Excellent Value

I recently (hesitantly i must admit) purchased 2000 gamers points in order to add some map packs to games like Call Of Duty 3 and Gears Of War.
My speculation was quickly put to rest however as i found that the new downloadable content gave my games a completely new lease of life - i downloaded another 20 or so cars for PGR 3 which gave me hours of driving enjoyment.
I have also downloaded small extras like themes and gamer pictures - honestly there is so much out there, with content that will cater for every gamers needs i would definitely recommend buying the points.
Don't think twice and buy them from play.com, they are cheaper than getting them direct from Microsoft.
