Morning Hangover #38: Raymond Wonders About Microsoft Points And Patrick Wants A Kojima Classic


Posted August 21, 2009 - By Raymond Padilla

Welcome to "Morning Hangover" -- an excellent way to start your day with the crew at TheFeed...no matter what you're recovering from. Every morning you'll hear musings from two of TheFeed's editors and have the chance to share your thoughts on what's going on in the gaming world. So buckle up, enjoy the last episode of TheFeed Nightcap, and keep reading!

Microsoft Points card for Xbox Live Arcade
Raymond Padilla: Yesterday, I got into an interesting conversation about Microsoft Points in the comments section of this story. As a gaming enthusiast, it never bothered me that I had to purchase points in increments of 500 ($6.25). Even if I had to buy more than I needed at any given time, I knew that they'd be used eventually. I can see how this might be a problem for casual gamers that make infrequent Xbox Live purchases, but I was surprised that readers of TheFeed -- presumably also enthusiast gamers -- have a huge problem with this. So in order to check myself and learn more about this "issue", I wanted to ask you if you have a problem with the way Microsoft sells its Points. Is it a rip-off that you can't buy exactly what you need? Am I dismissing it because I don't treat MS Points as real money (probably)?
Hideo Kojima's Snatcher box art
Patrick Klepek: Yesterday, Hideo Kojima revealed he's been working on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker because he's waiting for Kojima Productions to finish polishing up the next iteration of its internal engine technology and tools for console games. His next project is supposed to be a brand-new IP, but he also hinted that he'll be returning to something gamers have been demanding. The possibilities are pretty much endless there. Snatcher? Policenauts? Zone of the Enders? Sign me up for the last one, please. But, what about you guys?
TheFeed gang wants your thoughts on gaming, tech, the real reason Microsoft hasn't announced a price cut, and more. Let everyone know what you're thinking and chat it up with your fellow readers. Leave comments on anything and everything that's on your (gaming/tech/nerd) mind! The reader with the best comment will win some blood sausage from Cologne.
