How did you pay 25$ for 1500, when 20$ gets you 1600???

What sort of store are you going to to buy this crap? What store sells 1500 for 25$?

You dun goofed.

You're not a smart one are you? he's in a differn't country and if you could read you would know that.

Excuse me, mister? It's already been stated in this topic that the American dollar is worth less than both the Canadian and Australian dollars. Perhaps you should put on your glasses. Is this text big enough?

No s*** sherlock, but the exchange rates were much different 7 years ago when the program was started. What do you expect them to change the price every day as the market fluctuates?

if xbox live rewards and bing rewards are available in your country, for a minimal time investment you can attain the extra points you need to make a purchase for free. i am able to generate 100msp twice a week due to bing rewards alone. worth looking into.

The MSP system makes perfect sense.

It's a system created to make the apparent value of market place items cheaper by obscuring the actual value with a lower number, tricking people into spending more while forcing them to buy points in set amounts so that they buy more than what they need, which results in a larger profit for MS.

It just sucks from a consumer point of view, especially for those outside the US that need to spend more.

Worse in canada sorta more like equal. 20$ gets you 1400 while 40-50 gets you 2800.

I agree. I opted not to get dragonborn because I don't want to spend $40 on another MS points card to buy something worth around $20. I might get it later.

Exchange rate is a pretty weak assumption to use as the sole decision in deciding if a currency is stronger/weaker than some other currency. Just FYI.
