I'd like to know the entire list of 60 games... Anyhow I suppose I'll be picking up a few.

Dead cells is my #1 out of the trailer. I don’t think you’ll find a whole list because they’re only showing some each week. Here the games for this week.

Has it not already started as I'm not seeing No Man's Sky on special? Unless I'm missing something?

This is not a sale or is it? In my understanding this is just a promotion which can "earn" you some MSP.

This is just a time for Xbox to highlight some smaller games. Some games are on sale but not all.

Awesome, I'm gonna buy every last one of these games ... oh, wait we STILL DON'T have Microsoft Rewards in Denmark so a big middle finger right back at you M$ ... I'm so sick & tired of being left out just because I live in a small country warning we haven't had any rewards program what so ever yet so remember that next time you're complaining over crappy freebies cause at least you get some roll
It's not like I'm saying that I am Batman, I'm just saying no one has EVER seen us at the same time. . .

Does this mean up to 4K points per title or for the whole promotion?

Good question. While most games are less than $40, if you buy No Man's Sky, which costs $50 USD, would you earn points for the first $40, meaning 4,000 points? I would think (hope) it is per title.

And do they round up? If you purchase a game that's say $4.99, do you earn 400 points or 500 points (or would you get 499 points)? The way it's worded is that you only earn 100 points for every dollar spent, not cents.

The trailer liked to repeat itself quite a bit.

I wish they would just show us a full list of these games makes no sense why they can't

Not sure if this'll help, but a bit of comparison with the current reward stuctures...

Last month, I bought 2 digital games. I spent $22.49 on The Council and received 900 rewards points. I spent $15.99 on Unravel Two and received 639 rewards points. The way those work is (I believe) up to 40 points per dollar spent. I'll let the rest of you figure out the math since that's my weakness.
