So points are gone now and it's been converted to real local currency. So how come I can't use that currency to get a month month pass to XBL Gold? It'll only let me upgrade by credit card or code.
I found a 25 dollar Xbox cash card in 7-11 today and bought it thinking I could use it to get a month long subscription and then have some extra cash left over for map packs/games etc. Nope. Apparently Microsoft is doing some false advertising by calling it cash and then not allowing you to...you know...SPEND IT LIKE CASH. Seems like they need to go back to calling it points if they exclude memberships to their own service. No where on the card does it say I am not allowed to renew memberships with the money.
What is this garbage? Why are all the month long cards gone from stores as well? Looks like microsoft has screwed me out of 25 bucks since I won't be able to play online and theres no point in buying map packs or games because of it. Thanks so much for bending me over once again.
