Yeah, you could do this as well, hehe :p You might have to spend them on your UK account though, as they might be region locked? Anyway...it is extremely rare that us UK lot get any special offers, so I hope all the international people don't steal our free points like they did with the last special offer (Coke Zone promotion)

04-23-2010, 11:23 PM
Great!
400 free points AND a theme, I'd do this just for the theme to be fair! So I won't mind if I don't get to be on of the lucky 5'000. Nice to see developers doing something for Europe, specifically the UK, for once. Lucky us D:

Top of the post says you need a current gold account but then it states that both gold and silver members are eligible, kinda contradicts itself there. Anyways I need to make me a UK account so I can do this offer, 400 free points is kinda hard to pass up.

Typing "time in uk right now" on Google will display the time but not the date right at the top.

I'll do this for the points and then give the theme away for free.

also any non uk people...go away

I hope none of you are silly enough to go download at 12:01 on the dashboard clock in the UK since you will be too early for the offer if you do, the dashboard at the moment is in BST time which is GMT+1, you need to wait for 1:01.

Yes and your laptop is also on BST time, we are in British Summer Time in the UK at the moment, don't you remember all the clocks went forward an hour? Your laptop and 360 automatically updated to reflect the change. British Summer Time or BST is GMT+1. GMT is the same all year round so we are only on GMT time during the winter months.

If you want to be too early for the promotion, yes.

This promotion starts Monday 26th April at 1:01am UK time. Check out The Fixed Time World Clock (http://timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=26&month=4&year=2010&hour=0&min=1&sec=0&p1=0), at 00:01 GMT it gives London (whole UK) time as 01:01.

Microsoft can filter content to stop those with a US account outside the US downloading certain content (and any other region too), they just don't bother with a lot of it, like I can still download gamerpics and themes exclusive to the US marketplace, but I have attempted to download some of their community videos and it tells me that I am in the wrong region to download it.

I always get confused myself with the clock changes.
We are in BST (GMT+1) so we need to take away an hour at 12 to make it 11.

From what the OP said, "Download it from 12:01am GMT" would mean that we can download it at 11:01 tonight, because we are in BST which is an hour ahead of GMT.

No, I am right about the time. As he said we are an hour AHEAD of GMT, so if we are at 2pm (well just before) right now, we are an hour ahead of GMT so GMT is 1pm. Therefore at midnight GMT, we will be at 1am, just check the link I posted before for the world time clock to show you what time it will be.

So the timing is irrelevant then! I think this is much fairer to be honest and I hope that this promotion is filtered by location using IP's or something so that people who aren't eligible can't steal the points.

It's actually 4-6 weeks until you find out so it's not too bad I guess.

Free points though so it's worth a shot, I wouldn't mind waiting for free points if I did win.

That was a fail then ¬_¬
I agree, it's a lot fairer. I'm going to download it, there IS a chance. Everything that you can enter really easily I go for it. I entered a chance with GAME.co.uk to win a Transformers competition, win a golden xbox, the Resident Evil 5 Xbox, a couple of other online sites for an elite. And here is the cool part - I've won nothing! LOL I don't mind though, theres a huge improbability that I will win any of them, because the amount of people who enter these competitions turns it into a lottery.

But yer, if its going to take 6 months 400 points is about/ less than a fiver, I'll get that soon enough xP

Still wrong, I am in the UK and we do NOT observe GMT during the summer months, during winter we observe GMT, however when the clocks went forward an hour a few weeks ago, we started observing what is known as BST or British Summer Time, which is GMT+1. GMT does not change all year round, it is a constant time zone so when we are in Summer we do not observe it.

I really don't know why people don't just follow the link I posted earlier to the World Time Clock, GMT is the same as UTC so if you just click that link it would clearly show that 12:01 GMT/UTC is actually 1:01 BST (UK time).

I believe it was just 12:01 UK time (ignoring the GMT/BST) they wouldn't have something so confusing, so i'm gonna guess the logical thing.
I'm not that bothered if i get the points or not as i can easily go out and buy points if i need them.

Since the official terms state GMT, I would recommend downloading it again if you did it before 1:01 UK time just to be safe, it can't hurt to redownload anyway.

So the timing is irrelevant then! I think this is much fairer to be honest and I hope that this promotion is filtered by location using IP's or something so that people who aren't eligible can't steal the points.

I 2nd that! I am sick of us getting something for once and then all the yanks try to take it! I really hope they do that, like the Dr pepper thing for BC2 with the kits, that was US only! And Dr Pepper was smart to put something in that stopped non US people from getting it!

GMT = UK time, so 12:00 is 12:00

Yeah it did 12:01 am :P.

The thing is, I don't think most in this thread will be getting it. Why I hear you ask. Well because they had allready downloaded it before the start time. This makes me think that the check mark in the system was before the date even though they are redownloading it now, I don't think it creates a new check. Not sure though, I could be wrong.

You are 100% correct (OBVIOUSLY) but don't worry since everyone who ignored this probably won't get the perks anyway.
People saying he's wrong try learning about your own country. BST has been in place since before i was born, which likely means before you were born too (If the 'age' thread is anything to go by!).

Originally I was posting to help out in the offer, now I wish to educate them for the future and so that if they did miss out they can redownload and possibly still at least get the theme. It doesn't really bother me if someone has missed out on the offer, but to confuse other people (as seems to have happened to at least one person above) is irresponsible.

More than likely whoever wrote the T & C for the competition meant 12:01am UK time but they messed it up.

Now this I believe may be true, human error and all, but I tend to side with following the terms exactly as then I know I cannot be excluded because of an invalid entry.

Well i was saying that 12:00 is 12:00 does not matter about BST (thats if you clock shows both) Cus My clocks only show 00:00 or 12:00 and not 12:00 BST 11:00 GMT.

Glad I avoided this.

First off, I would be stealing points away from UK users, who honestly get the shaft more often than not.

Second off, what time was it for? Didn't want to bother

Thirdly, I would have had to make a UK account. Can I use the points on my US account then? I'm guessing no (?) Either way, still seems like too much hassle for $5. Theme sounds neat though.

Are people actually arguing over fucking timezones?

Look, 0000 GMT = 0100 BST.

We, (Britain), are in BST currently.
You know, the clocks go forward an hour, we get more daylight per day.

And who knows what they meant?
The only way to figure that one out is if you e-mailed MS and you probably wouldn't even get a response...

To those in other countries thinking they could make a UK account and download it.. You would be wrong. My boyfriend who lives in Europe was staying over here with me and tried to download it after changing his location etc to UK and it didn't work for him.

I have a few theories as to why but not entirely sure as to which one would be the correct one. Also I downloaded at roughly 00:10BST (which is GMT+1) So I'm guessing I must of done it at the right moment. I say guessing because I got confused reading through the entire thread with the whole kafuffle about the timing issue >_<

you seemed to have forgotten that bit, which means, even though they said you can have 400 microsoft points token "and" token for rockstar theme, it was a typo, as they meant to say "OR" . so you cant have both. its either MS points or rockstar theme. their choice, not yours.

05-09-2010, 08:42 PM
I think you people are wrong about them giving out the points already (no offense intended).

No-one has had an email from them, which is how they claim they will contact the winners. Also its still open till the 10th May and points etc. will not be given out until 4-6 weeks after that (see T&C).

As a final note I downloaded it at 00:01:15 GMT on the day it started. So technically if the codes were already being given out I should have been one of the first to get them and as expected, nothing yet. No-one else I know have got them either and we all did it between 00:01:00 and 00:07:00.

One thing though, can they actually make them only work on movies?? I would expect a point to be a point and the movie idea just to be a suggestion. I want to use mine for Mass Effect DLC.

Yeah, If you read the T&C carefully it's just suggestions for what you could spend the points on. Also the email would just be for the purpose of giving out the theme codes for people to redeem.

If you did it in time you'll receive you're codes between the 7th-21st of June, as it says 4-6 weeks after the offer ends, which was 10th of May, so you will all just have to wait till then.

If you did it in time you'll receive you're codes between the 7th-21st of June, as it says 4-6 weeks after the offer ends, which was 10th of May, so you will all just have to wait till then.

I'm still confused as to where the hell I got 400 mspoints from then? Only time will tell, I guess.

If anyone has any extra theme codes I'd be happy to trade a Bright Falls theme.

Depending on what the Rockstar theme is like, I'd be interested in this as I really like the Alan Wake theme.

I've not heard anything yet, and I downloaded it thirty seconds after the launch.

I think there was too much confusion with GMT/BST, and I even think Rockstar may have even got it wrong, and meant BST rather than GMT.

But hey ho - these things are free. Dont expect to win any of them, but if you do see it as a bonus :)
That's why I enter as many free competitions as possible. I don't expect to win, but If I do it is a bonus :)

Nothing here! Don't think they would have messed up GMT and BMT as it was a UK only promotion remember.

Saying that, they did screw-up the start of this free weekend, advertising it as mid-day GMT but not starting it till 18:00ish. Lets hope they got it correct this time and Rockstar are just leaving it till the last minute.

Did it say that it was a Premium theme?

Still Nothing. Just wanted to keep this active until 30/06 and see if anyone has got anything yet. As soon as you do post here.

If we don't get anything would it be worth emailing MS??? Just wondering.
I would avoid calling them at all costs.

It was not the RDR promo then, could have been the Game Room thing.

Still nothing. If NO-ONE gets anything, should I make a pol and then we can annoy MS saying X number of people downloaded it and received nothing. As my understanding is that everyone gets the free theme, but only the first 5000 get the points. Would love the points, but the theme would be good enough. Will need to wait till after the 30/06 though.

I feel dirty and used ;)

Good to see someone found this thread and bumped it.
Bloody search is humped for me.

At least with this thread, it'll probably get more attention than the ones in the RDR forum.
I e-mailed on Saturday btw, since it is getting a bit odd now, but nothing back yet. (Doubt they'll respond though tbh).

Yeah, I think it said everyone who downloaded it was eligible for the theme, although I'm not 100% certain. If it's true, I hope it's a good theme :P

Also, I haven't received anything yet either; I hope they get back to us soon.

Just got an e-mail saying I won 400 MSP for being in the first 5k.

One big problem though.
Apparently the code isn't f-ing valid :mad:
(Plus I still don't have the theme, which is the only thing I actually really cared about out of the two).

My code isn't working either.

Like you i was really after the theme as well :p

VladimirK
06-29-2010, 08:54 PM
It's actually even more irritating than not having the code.
Now you have the code for points, but not only can you not get them yet for whatever reason, but you don't have the code for the thing you actually wanted that you were supposed to get regardless of being in the first 5k.

And btw, read the small print incase you don't plan on spending the points.
They will expire on December 31st this year.

Thank god it's not just me who's code isn't working, not that I'd want you to have invalid codes, but I didn't want to be the only one suffering from this.
Hopefully they'll sort it out soon, I planned on picking up one of the DOTW games with the points dammit!

I got a theme for the 1st 85,000 - not tried it yet.

What I will say is that there promorion clearly stated Everyone who downloaded the demo. The offer did not limit it to the first x amount of triallers. If you don't get the theme and you wanted it, then I would contact them and remind them of the offer you accepted (if you are bothered enough).

Should have been 0100 rather than 0000 because we run on BST just now.

EDIT - We went BST on the 28th March offer was 6th April?? I always considered it to be GMT, since Greenwich is quite close. How stupid is that, they should have just said 1 minute past midnight as it was UK only it should have been UK time.
