Lumines about to get cheaper?

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.

Thanks for contacting XBOX Customer Support,

Luminous Live is known to have some issues regarding unsatisfactory in it’s download. Please wait until Monday to see wether we have any updates regarding this issue. Do not download or purchase anything else that has to be dealt with Luminous Live. Until then, feel free to contact us via telephone for any updates of this issue and what we can offer you.

For any questions regarding this issue, please contact Xbox customer support on http://www.xbox.com/support/contact/

Thanks for time and support,
XBOX customer service team.

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?

I bought the 1200 pack and the 600 point add on. The 600 point add on REALLY REALLY should have been included, its only a few friggin extra backgrounds and colours.

Overall ive already spent as much as im going to spend on it - if it gets a reduced price I think those like me that bought it, should have some ms points added to our account or something?

“Do not download or purchase anything else that has to be dealt with Luminous Live. ”

I don’t beleive someone from the MS support could say that. If they are going to change their pricing they would announce that in public as early as possible to have less troubles with those who already bought it later. So I say - FAKE :)

I would of thought fake if it weren’t for the fact that there has been so much unhappiness. We also don’t know the download figures. Perhaps it hasn’t taken off as everyone thought it would? But we shall see won’t we!

Also, if it is a fake, wouldn’t the guy have at least spelt Lumines right to make it look all official?

It’s interesting that in the very same sentence that you complain about their spelling and grammar, you also manage to mis-spell ‘appalling’.

Good going :)

Just found this:

Appauling
The n00bish and wrong way to spell the word ‘appalling’. Studies have shown that farmers are among the worst spellers of this word.

I am APPALLED at your spelling

I’ve looked back at all the emails i’ve received from xbox support and it seams to follow the same lines spelling mistakes include (xbox 260???)

Ah, good to see you all spotted my deliberate mistake there. Well done. Have a biscuit on me :P

If this game gets cheaper, I’ll buy it.

If this game gets cheaper, I’ll complain.

If this game gets cheaper, they’d better refund the points the rest of us have spent on it already.

This is bunk. First, the grammar is terrible. Even MS Word could pick up those F-ups. Second, no MS employee would EVER send out an un-canned response regarding such a controversial topic. Just like the 100gb HDD, this is BS.

FAKE

Now who’s waiting for a 3D car game?
(nothing in mind in particular)

Well if I get some points refunded thats Mad Tracks paid for, I assume thats what your subtle hint was aimed at?

WOW this is so obviosly a load of crap. it’s got FAKE written all over it. If people are going to try this rubbish at least try to make it look slightly plausible by having a properly worder letter done

Hi!
Christmas Day falls on December 25. It is preceded by Christmas Eve on December 24, and in some countries is followed by Boxing Day on December 26. Some Eastern Orthodox Churches celebrate Christmas on January 7, which corresponds to December 25 on the Julian calendar. December 25 as a birthdate for Jesus is merely traditional, and is not thought to be his actual date of birth.Good luck!

Thanks for that.

Well obviously it’s not his offcial birthday, as the holiday was stolen from pagen religion like just about everything else in the christian faith.
