I got 2 of those messages regarding 6000MS points. However the message only contained 6000 and the logo of the points.

What's with these points messages anyway? Are they sent by people with their accounts hacked or something?

No nothing to do with hacked accounts or security breaches, it's just gullible users thinking it's a way to get MSP for free. It comes around every few months or so, at the moment it's Xbox 10th anniversary in Japan or something so people believe it's some Microsoft promotion.

I've only had two messages over the past few days.

I remember on PSN there was some sh*t 'Invite 15 of your friends to a keyboard chat at the same time and they all have to type surprise and you receive a $20 PSN card'

Funny so so so many people were actually trying to do it, and just yesterday some dickhead was saying his friend did it and it worked when i said is was Bullsh*t, some people are incredibly stupid.

Ah. Wasn't sure what it was about, thanks.

Speaking of free MSP, Xbox Live Rewards is a neat little program. So far I've already gotten 320 points from them, and apparently I get 200 more for renewing my membership for a year (stuff I would do regardless). Guess I won't need to pay for upcoming DLC that I want. tounge.gif

I don't even know if messages came my way, but I was never flooded with crap, unlike my email!

Sounds like a Chainmail thing, my lil sister buys into sending copies of messages to get some good luck or somethin'
That DOES bother me.

The question lingers, what will the successor of "Points" be?

Most likely a currency of that location. Or a global new currency.

I don't what will succeed MS Points. I asked my manager if it's true and he says so. He doesn't know anything about it yet though.

Halo 4 screenshots, by far the most graphically stunning game for the 360 so far.

Wow, they do look good. Halo 4 is going to be in 720P right where as Bungie's were only like 640 or something? Can deffo see the difference.

If Microsoft are to ditch the MSP system as rumoured then i can hardly see them replacing it with another made up currency, i'd say they will start dealing with real monies.

Those Halo screens look great. I think I prefer the older, more cartoony version of Cortana, though. In other news, my cable provider finally added full access to HBO GO via the 360 app yesterday. There were 41 complete series available in the Shows section when I checked earlier. That is just an assload of great content.

I will be trying the Xbox driver for PC, my main point is even the MS' OFFICIAL driver had an UPDATE function, but the GUI and driver interface are rather woefully lacking, they don't do much good for making it work the way you want it to

Can anyone help with this?

-removed-

And click on the first red banner/button that has a 2 under it. It'll then take you to a new window. Click on the Xbox Live tab, and a page will come up telling you to enter your Email Address and Password for your Hotmail account or Windows Live. Once you've entered it, two codes will come up, the top one is for a 48 Hour code for Live. But the thing I need help with here is that I created a random Hotmail account, but my computer sucks soo bad and it takes forever to load. Can someone PM to help me with the problem. I'll give you my FAKE email address and password, and you give me the code that comes up and PM me the code.

But don't steal the code, or I'll either flag you or report you.

If anyone finded this helpful too, than your welcome. But please, help.

While I was in GfWL, I could see friend accounts I had set in XBL with Xbox, but as of late, not been in contact, I'd like to just check messages, thinking that might be the way (using the PC version of GTA), I did setup a PSN account name on Xbox Live, I think this wasn't the best idea, anyone else follow suit, thoughts?

No, I don't. It works perfectly fine. I've tried once, and now I need to try it again. But my damn computer sucks ass. You can even try it, and you'll see who the real idiot is. It's LEGIT.

Don't promote other sites, especially when no one vouches for the Malware content of any other site, it's too risky to just click on things someone "says" is safe
Doesn't sound on the up and up. Would be better to PM someone rather then tell the world your credentials, etc. Someone you game with who you know?!
Anywho, if your computer is loading INTERNET slow, it's not always the computer to blame. You can blame slow networking on the gaming device tools as well. (Wifi for PS3 is the same as the PSP, for example)

Pretty certain half of those are not screenshots, rather artwork, just to be clear you guys knew that? In fact 90% of them look like artwork not screenshots from the game.

I used to love Halo, personally i think it got stupid after the first one, the story just got ridiculous.

Well it's pretty obvious that there not all screenshots as it mentions concept images in the title. Also doesn't Halo show cutscenes using the games engine and not GGI or what ever? Looks like the bottom 5 are the concept images.

Pretty sure these are actual in game shots though as they're showing the HUD.
