Users in uproar after change from points to £'s

Post by Willow on Wed Jul 10, 2013 9:36 pm

CVG has been reporting that the dashboard beta has a very NASTY surprise in that games now cost more! By as much as a 3rd!

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/418403/xbox-360-beta-update-raises-eu-game-prices/

Its possible they may have not completely finished implementing the change over so it could be an error. If not then a 400,800 or 1200 points games will cost you more in future!

I ask you can MS get anything right anymore! I would rather they stayed using points if all this is true

If you have say 400 pts enough for a 400 points game, if you take the beta you would not be able to buy a 400 points game!

The article also mentions f you buy a COD points card for DLC you will find you cant actually buy the DLC because its not enough now!


What a disaster!

Good news it apparently is an error and MS will refund the extra for people who bought stuff on the beta http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-10-new-real-money-xbox-dash-raises-game-prices

I can't help thinking was this an error or another U turn after the backlash? MS seem to be an expert at them!

My belief is that this is a simple error. which is good!
