    If you actually look into the Rewards program it's not actually done by Microsoft, but they officially sponsor it. ePrize LLC out of Michigan administers it.

    Yes, the $100 trade-in offer isn't administered by Microsoft either, it's a MS sponsored recycle program run by a different company.

    Does anybody know anywhere that is selling Kinect2 sensors at a reasonable cost? It appears that places such as a Gamestop increased their prices on reselling the sensors after MS made their announcement of how much they were going to sell the stand alone unit.

    I thought I read on here that in the UK (?), people were dumping their sensors and they were available for really cheap for whoever wanted to go buy one.

    They're at least $70 on ebay, and at that price, one might as well just pay the $100 for the original sku.

    What's bad is that Gamestop only gives $25 trade in for a Kinect 2 and sell it for $100+.

    Same as everything else they do. Actually most items are much worse...

    A game over six months old, lets say Gears of War 3, I think they give you 20 to 40 cents for. Literally.

    I also received the 50,000 points offer via email. Too bad they didn't extend the date far enough for me since I'm gonna be getting the white console.

    They're only giving $25 trade in? Wow, their website says they are selling them for $125.99.

    Simply outrageous. I think they were selling them for $75 or so before the stand alone price announcement.

    Yes, that deal is going to be over for me as well. I'm going to hold off to see what MS offers in Oct after they see their Sept NPD numbers and how they got massacred due to the PS4 Destiny bundles.

    I could need some tips on getting games from the XBOX store, cheap.

    I am interested in Horizon 2, tried to demo, was entertained and would like to play some more.

    Since i am in Europe it seems i can do the switch region switch?

    I'm getting the free Games with Gold for Xbox One even though I don't own one. I just sign into the web site with my Xbox Live Gold account & purchase them.

    Wrong thread
    Amazon UK: Xbox One + Kinect + Destiny for £349.

    Same price as Kinectless version. That's got to be a pricing error ...? All the other Kinected bundles are loads more expensive, as usual.

    :) You're welcome. BTW, keep an eye out on my Google Spreadsheet. I try to update it as soon as they announce the new titles. I've already updated it with October's offerings.

    I'll have to wait until February when I get my tax refund, but yeah I want the Kinect bundle too. Hopefully they have a free game bundled with it by then.

    I'm looking closer to Black Friday at the latest.
    On my immediate pick up list is Killer Instinct, Ryse (used), Forza Horizon 2, Halo MCC...
    There are probably others, but those are a solid start for me.
