It looks like Microsoft may well act upon the rather ridiculous pricing scheme for Lumines Live!, as Xbox.com forum member Dj LoneStar fired off an email to Xbox Customer support, and got some interesting news back.

All of this raises a couple of issues.
Firstly, if they lower the price on either the game or the DLC, what happens to those that have already paid out? We have seen before packs that become free, but not after 5 days of release. Is there going to be a form of compensation for the people that picked up the game immediately?
And secondly, the spelling, grammar and sentence structure are appalling. They cannot even spell Lumines! Is it genuine? Well, anyone that has had to ring customer support will tell you they have had a range of nationalitites that answer the phones, so the job of writing that email may have fallen to the wrong person.
All in all, it leaves you wondering what the hell is going to happen tomorrow. It is all speculation at this point in time, but you can expect major uproar if the price of Lumines takes a sudden drop. Still doesn’t mean I’ll get it though. So what do you think all this means?
