Microsoft Points are used by Xbox Live gamers to purchase downloadable content from the Xbox Live Marketplace. A user must sign up for an Xbox Live account in order to gain access to the marketplace. If you do not wish to pay for a subscription to Xbox Live you can simply sign up for a free silver account. What's better, your Xbox will automatically upgrade your silver account to a gold account for a month for your first few accounts! Once you have an Xbox Live account, you simply sign into Xbox Live and head over to the marketplace to search for something you may be interested in. There are thousands of different things that you are able to choose from. Here are a few things I'd recommend.
Many games have additional maps that you can buy to add hours of entertainment to the game. Whether it's a game like Call of Duty or Halo where these maps will be used primarily on Xbox Live or a game like Oblivion or Fallout 3 where it's an extension to the current objectives of the game, it is sure to add something new to the game. Another common item is actual games. You can get full arcade games with your microsoft points. They range from classic games from the earlier systems to new family rated arcade style games. There are even a few full feature Xbox 360 games deemed to be classics that you can purchase for 1,600 Microsoft Points as well. You will never be disappointed with a highly rated arcade game! Another option is avatar items. If you want your avatar to look sweet and original, you'll probably need to buy different items and clothing for your avatar in the marketplace. They are very cheap and can make your avatar look pretty sweet. You can buy additional songs for the Guitar Hero, Dance Central, and Rock Band games. There are probably more downloadable songs than there are actually on the games to begin with! If none of these interest you, maybe some music or movies will catch your interest. You can log into the Zune library and purchase music or movies much like you would with iTunes and be able to watch or listen to them over and over again!
You can read further into my site to learn about the different pricing options for them, or if you're interested in getting Free Microsoft Points then just head on over to the home page of my site to figure out how that works. It's a fairly simple process and based on the number of things you can do with them, it's well worth the short amount of time it will take you to get them.
