We Happy Few reminds me a lot of A Clockwork Orange.

I guess if you were already going to get some of these overpriced indie games then it's worth it.

4000 credits is $4, so $4 off $40 or 10%

It is something, but it won't motivate me to spend extra money. Definitely getting We Happy Few though. Looks awesome!

There should be other awards like Avatar clothing or gamerpics, nobody will bother with summer spotlight for just a couple of £$

I can find that by scrounging around on the floor for pennies.

Pretty sure most would bother less with avatar clothing and gamerpics Tbf. Saving cash is saving cash, but when the deal is to spend more than you normally would...that ain't saving. As noted above Xbox rewards is for fools. Change your region you save the 'reward' on most games.

6 weeks is September 6th, so midnight the night of September 5th

Yea I gotta say if the upped the ante just a little bit for the rewards program they would sell more. Gonna be a big wake up call when Best Buy goes to digital for their gamers club unlocked at 20% off. Again some good titles on there but its just not enough I can see Inside dropping by fall but if oyu can't wait I understand look at the studio that made the game top notch.
I will walk the line of stability carefully as I stare at my ever growing backlog.

Solus Project ad Turing Test were ones I would like to get anyway, but the incentives don't really persuade anyone to buy day 1.

No rewards in Switzerland.. so nothing special for me except more game releases in the next few feeks.

Meh.

So you don't think a program that gives you a monthly rebate on money spent, with additional promotions (mostly for just buying things) is a joke? I've been a member since it started, and it appears I have: Lifetime Credits Earned: 547,950 and Lifetime Microsoft Points Earned: 7,060.

I agree that since the "relaunch" the promotions haven't been great, but 10% back, with another 10% in rebates is much preferred, IMO, over waiting until Black Friday or whatever sale might have these titles on a sale.
Look at me so I can finish!
