In case some of you guys were wondering how a selection of you received free MS points, I can gladly confirm that it's not an error. There has been rumors around the internet that some Xbox Live users have been receiving 500 MS points on their accounts unexpectedly. There has also been some confusion going on since there hasn't been an official word on this issue. Well, Microsoft seems to be handing out a gift of 500 MS points to various Xbox Live users. Apparently, if you gamers out there pre-ordered a copy of Grand theft Auto IV, you received a special offer, granting you 500 free MS points. But, it turns out that this offer had an expiry date and Xbox Live users were no longer able to redeem their points. However, it has been confirmed that some of the users that received points didn't pre-order GTA IV and have never played it before. Even more bizarre, there has been gamers complaining that there's been points deducted from their accounts for no reason, so something needs to be done about this. Microsoft has been doing unreasonable things lately. I guess we'll just have to wait for an official announcement from them.
