Xbox Lets You Give Points to Me

by PacoDG

Microsoft has set up a gift giving system with MS Points. MajorNelson spells it out:

“Assuming your browser settings are properly configured, you should see a little Xbox LIVE points card logo below that when you click on it will pop open the Microsoft Points site to sign in with your Windows LIVE ID. Once you do that, it will return you to this page where you will see your current points balance. You can then click on it to to purchase additional points OR (and this is new) you can gift points to someone else.”

Remember, my gamer tag is PacoDG (I really need points to buy Undertow!). Nice move by Microsoft, yeah, it is copying the Nintendo gift giving system, but you can’t knock a positive thing.
