Microsoft dishing out free Xbox Live points

A number of Xbox Live users are reporting that Microsoft has topped up their accounts with 500 MS Points.

Nobody knows why, but it appears to be completely random. There's no notification, so take a look at your Xbox Live account to see if there's any points waiting for you.

Not a deal. Should be in misc.

Trouble is, there's no way of knowing if you've got the free points unless you manually check.

The source already shows that a few people have checked and found the points.

Had they not read about the "deal", they'd never have known the points were there. :thumbsup:

Phew, I was worried Id be getting a bill on my card..

I wasnt sure where it came from. Ive recently had the xbox repaired so thought it may have been the live code with that, It was my birthday when the points showed up so I was even more confused! I did pre-order GTA as well.

At a guess, I would think its to do with the fact they expired all the unused GTA points a few weeks ago without promoting the fact and advertising it with the free points. Therefore they are giving them back

Some people didnt get gta and still got the points, others already used their points and got free ones aswell so it cant be the gta thing.
