Seems kinda suspect to me, but received this message through XBox Live tonight:

"We've enhanced Game Marketplace to make finding games and content easier. Try it for yourself with this token for 80 free Microsoft points."

There's a code, but I don't even feel like stirring it with a cattle-prod... :-\

I got the same message tonight.  It looks like it is from Microsoft, but I wasn't sure so I haven't entered the code.

Doing some more reading on this - found some info on the XBox Forums:

Seems to say it's legit, but random...still got a few days(Til March 2nd) to ponder it though.

Yes, it's legit.  Do keep in mind the points expire next Wednesday.  So spend them on next week's DOTW!   ;D

Sweet - good to know, thanks for the word.

I'm assuming that if I add this to my current points, it takes these 80msp as the first spent on my next purchase, right?

Do you get to kill Ewoks in that? If so then 8 million points would be a bargain!   ;D
