There was a few negative reviews on these Rock Band themed 2100 Microsoft Points, I can understand the negative responses. I personally wouldn't of paid £1 extra for different packaging.
With play.com putting the price down to the other 2100 Microsoft Points you might as well get this one just to have different packaging. How long play.com will offer these points at this price I do not know.
These points work in exactly the same way as normal Microsoft Points do, you just scratch away the silver stuff at the back with a coin, sign into Xbox Live, go to the Xbox Live Marketplace blade, and go to "Redeem Code" then simply enter the 25 character code in with the on-screen keyboard, or the Xbox Chat Pad or a USB keyboard (easiest way). When the code is accepted you can browse away at the Marketplace and see what takes your fancy. I just bought a few Live Arcade games.
The big advantage over these pre paid cards is that if you don't have a credit/debit card, or you simply do not want to put your card details on your account these are a great alternative. I recently had my Xbox Live account stolen, and they changed everything, and even bought over £70 worth of Marketplace content. So now I refuse to put my card details on there again, thus I have to start over with my Gamerpoints - very fustrating. So I have a feeling I'll be buying these Points cards alot.
The Points card itself comes in an actual Xbox 360 game case, but unfortunately you can't use the box as a spare case. The housing for the card isn't the usual disc holder. I'm sure when these pre paid cards first came out that the housing in the box was the CD holder. Shame they're not like that anymore incase you buy a pre owned game and the box isn't in very good condition. So you'll have to either recycle the case when you're done or just keep it for your reference that you bought it, and you want a physical representation.
Great purchase from play.com once again. Get yours now if you want something different for the packaging at this price, and if you like or own Rock Band (which I don't...yet)
A huge thanks to play.com for a great service.
