I sure as hell hope that this is just an error and not what Microsoft really intends to do. I mean, if the switch causes things to cost more, that's just stupid. Really damn stupid and people are going to be pissed.

I'm genuinely curious as to what the reactions are going to be once this information gets more widespread. I'm sure the majority of folks are going to be unhappy, especially if they have a lot of MSP to get converted. Y'know, like Gabrius for example. >.>

It's really 2 issues. MS isn't ripping you off; you're getting the monetary value that you paid for the points. The price increase in games (and I'm hoping it's just new releases and not existing games) just means your money won't go as far. Price increases are an understandable part of life even if we don't like it.

Show me one area of life in recent years where your money hasn't been buying less and I'll call you lucky.

It clearly benefits MS. They could have told people in advance about the new pricing, but they didn't. When people can buy less games for the money they had in their account, MS has less royalties to pay out.

How does that work when you pay X amount for the points, and they're being converted to local currency for LESS than that amount?

Example, you buy $20 worth of points, and they converted it to just $15, are you saying that it's OK for them to do that? That it's just the "cost of inflation"?

If that really is what you're saying, then go kiss Micro$oft's giant hairy ass elsewhere....

I read another article that spelled it out more. They said that if you spent $20 dollars on points you'd get $20 credit on your account. What is different is that $20 that used to buy a game may not buy that game anymore--because the game prices went up. As I said in my first post, IF that is what's happening then you haven't lost any money. It's the same as if you go to a store to buy a $60 game and they've raised it to $70. You haven't lost money, it's just that you need more to buy the product.

That's why I said what I said. IF the article I read was wrong--or my interpretation of it is wrong--then I apologize. And, no, I'm not kissing any giant hairy asses!
