Comment on "Microsoft Points System for Zune"
by Iain — Sep 28
No, no, no! The 79 points thing is brilliant! See, you can only buy points in bunches of 400, 1200, 2000, and 4000. $1 is worth roughly 80 points.

So, you buy your first 400 points. Grab your first 5 songs for 79 points each, and you've 5 points left over. "Oh no", you say, and buy another 400 points. Now you've got 405. Buy another 5 songs, 10 points left over. Can't waste those points, need to top it up! And they've got you on the merry-go-round forever!

Got to hand it to Microsoft, they're always inventing new ways of screwing the customer.
