......Thanks Microsoft.

3 more years and I can get an indie game.

So, that is what they meant by "special" birthday gift for signing up for XBox Live Rewards.

He can't; there is nothing he can buy with that.

MS knows how to give the gift that keeps on giving.

I still haven't gotten my 20 points yet, and my Birthday was way back in October

I don't remember playing on the NES and seeing "Thank you Mario! But our Princess is in another DLC"

I thought it was BS too, I was hoping for a cake prop for my Avatar or something.

There are some crappy gamerpics for that price. It really puzzles me how MS thought it as a good idea to do that. I mean do they think the amount of people who think better of MS because of 20 MS given alongside a mail that makes it look like an incredibly generous gift is significant? Most people won't care or even worse feel offended. They could give some crappy gamerpic or avatar clothing instead. That would be way cheaper in the long run and would be received way better.

"I thought it was BS too, I was hoping for a cake prop for my Avatar or something."

Yeah, that's what I was expecting. Or maybe like a birthday hat. Either that or a free XBLA game of their choice or something. It isn't like they would lose any money doing this since all of these things are digital downloads and would cost them nothing.

It is almost insulting to receive 20 points. It is like giving someone a gift card to a store worth only .25. It is pretty much pointless.
