Yep, that’s the deal, buy all of the summer of arcade titles before August 31st and they will refund you 800 MS points. Although it does say giveaway so does that mean you might get 800 points refunded? Also be sure to keep in mind the official rules state it can take 4-6 weeks to get your 800 points.

I say they should have made all the summer of arcade 800 MS points and give us an 800 point refund. Sounds like a much better deal to me. Anyone remember the days of 400 and 800 MS point games? I know I sure do, kind of miss those days.
