800 Microsoft Points @ Game Instore £2.98

Found 8th Mar 2012
Bought some of these from Game today instore.

These are the old style cards in cases, NOT the new style printed off vouchers.

This is nationwide but will depend on store stock and should be in Gamestation as well.

Don't like the ones that go on receipts these days, i ensure that i ask for it on a card as last time i got one that was on a receipt it didn't work and had so much trouble trying to sort it i just gave up.. Conning **** game are,

Hot!

Looks like GAME are trying to liquify as much stock as possible before the potential administrators come in.

Are you selling any of them on?

No he definately isn't selling them on.

lol

8000 MS Points for £29.80, that aint half bad!

Half price basically, ebay, or I could finally buy some games and sod the discs off

Seeming they can no longer get stock due to debts (they're not even stocking mass effect 3). So is be wary about buying points. Hopefully they will get out of there hole and it will be a great buy. But its a risk

Why do you need to be cautious about buying points? They're yours when you buy them. It's not like in-store credit.

If you're like me, you'll be watching this go up in flames.

There is no risk at all with the points, as stated in the description is the old style ones that come in a pre packed package, not the new style they print off from the till.

That will be for the printed voucher, you need to ask for the old style pr packed cards.

I thought they were game reward points, so were related to game, so if they go bust game goes bust?

are GAME in trouble? I have £45 worth of unused points on my card

No, kingnpuk, they're just fine. If you've been living under a rock for the past few months, that is. They're buggered.

No these are Microsoft points for purchasing content on the Xbox 360. Reward points are completely different.


Yes Game seam to be in a lot of trouble, read the news and use your points before they go bust which is looking very likely.

You should sell them on! crikey.

Which store OP?

Comments are buggered with the quoting...oh well.

Just been to my local, they said they haven't stocked the prepaid cards for around 5 months

might have a wonder in tomorrow... sure a few won't go a miss. Didn't happen to be selling off any Xbox Live Gold memberships did they? That would be brilliant timing!

Banned

just rang up my local game store, the guy said they don't do the card ones anymore and its only printed off at the till. Checked the website and none there either. Must just be the odd branch that is maybe selling them.
Voted cold!

Funny fact was i asked the same question, apparently the 12 months live pre paid packed card were listed on the till at £9.99, although none in stock.

Same i think went for the gears of war 12 + 2 months codes £9.99 but none in stock. I can't confirm those prices as i did not by any, nor was shown the screen.

One of those 'good for you' moments but it wont happen for the rest of us. Cold

None at the Beckton branch :-(

You don't know without trying. There are some good deals to be had with all there price reductions, but it does involve going into store and checking.

If anyone finds any at that price they should count them selves very lucky. Hopefully that'll be me! Can only hope, gotta be worth a try. Thanks!

There's a reason they're not stocking Mass Effect 3, and it's not entirely due to poor finances.

If EA won't pass on the game for reasonable terms, then there's no problem with GAME not stocking it.

Might pop into my local Southampton store(s) tomorrow, and see if I have any luck. You should make a list of where doesn't sell them anymore, just so people can see that they're out of luck.

is there some specific you have to ask at the counter to get these cards?

So if game are in trouble does this also mean gamestation are as i have loads of credit for there :s

Yes, Gamestation are owned by Game, but might want to check the deal is on over there.

I got some today, it's store specific though and depending on stock.

gonna check BHAM tomorrow

People will be lucky to find these ... The staff will pick up all the good gear

To all people with credit at GAME or Gamestation: Use it up ASAP!

It's not a guarantee they will go under but if they do then your credit will be useless. Even if you use it up on PSN Credit etc at least you can sell that on (even at a slight loss). It's better than being left high and dry and out of pocket.
