Now i'm intrigued.

With Amazon selling codes, are these redeemable on only US accounts or would they be redeemable on say a UK account as well.

Anyone know? as i would quite like doom!

Seems kind of useless when you can just buy points and get it even faster.

Online Game Code: Currently, this item is available only to customers located in the United States and who have a U.S. billing address.

US ONLY, sorry buddy ^^

That's who can BUY it from amazon.
Nothing about account compatibility! Thats what i'm curious about!

You can buy the exact amount of points and then get Doom at Half price on XBL?
please show me how to this and i will give you one million pounds.... and my house.

Thats the problem! Stemming from the point you made in your first post!
I'm in the UK, with UK money cards and a UK billing address! but if i know it works i can make an effort to find someone to be my buyer in the states :P

Two words: amazon deals. Doom is down to 3 bucks (from 5) and pac-man: championship edition is down to 5 (from 10), and this is just a week after they started. There will sure to be more to come. Plus, its no slower than buying points; you buy it with your credit card, get the code, redeem it, download the game.

I picked up DOOM...for less than $3...whereas I would have had to buy a card or buy MS points off the site, put in the code and then buy DOOM for $2 more. Amazon >>>> MS Points.

This would be a really good idea if it came to the UK, but you never know Play.com might start the idea up =]

Doom is back up to $5 today, but Pac Man is still discounted

BTW, buying MS Points from amazon is cheaper cause they don't charge you tax, although they only have 1600 and 4000 point cards/codes

Uh . . . aren't you paying with a credit card when you buy from Amazon too? Technically, I have a bank debit card and that's works just as well on the 360 or anywhere else shopping online.

How about one million USD and we call it a deal. Also, rather than your house, a condo in California.

But seriously... There wasn't enough information on the whole thing when I first replied, so it came off as a useless deal. That's why I said what I did.
