MyVIP rewards were replenished. Since they're converting to M$ Rewards in June, better get in on it.
I just converted my 1k gems into 20k Microsoft reward credit
Thanks for the heads-up - turns out I had enough to convert into 10k of credit, which'll cover one of the Saints Row 2 DLC packs. And I didn't realise I'd actually already picked-up SR2 at some point (either during a sale or as a GWG freebie), so I only need to buy one of the DLC packs with actual money.
Moral of the story: if there's a game going cheap (or better yet, free) for 360 that you like, and it isn't currently backwards-compatible, pick it up anyway - because it's good to have in your library in general, and particularly in the event that MS gives it the b-c treatment.
