    The server's giving me a connection refusal error D: Guess I'm done for now, unless it allows me later. But here's what I got with my 2400 points:

    EDIT: Nevermind, it's working again, albeit slowly.
    There's not really much that is good for 400 MSP. The only one that comes to mind is the first Geometry Wars XBLA game, which is pretty great (although there's a sequel which is quite a bit better).

    Looks like they found out and shut it down. Either that or it was flooded and shut down due to too much server traffic. Could possibly just be my network not wanting to connect. :lol:

    The contest thing is hosted on a separate website, and that website is just being overloaded. (also, there's not much reason why they'd shut it down, and it says there's a limited amount of codes anyways.)
    ...I wish I got more earlier though, rather than wasting time jumping for joy because I didn't have to wait longer to finally get Jet Set Radio.

    EDIT: The website's going in and out. It opened for me just now.

    It's back up as YayMii mentioned. (It's not slow like it was before either!)

    It keeps asking me to verify a phone number though, which is pretty annoying.

    Yup, that's what I'm getting now. Either DoS, or they shut it down.

    EDIT: More server issues. It's back up again.
    EDIT2: Yeah, it's being real finnicky now. The questions aren't even showing up for me.

    Does anyone know how to get around this fickle system of asking for a cell phone number? I only have one cellphone. :|

    Keep refreshing if the questions don't appear.

    Use TorBrowser to create an account, and click the "New Identity" button before creating the next one.

    EDIT: Damn, it's not letting me log in to my Xbox Live account any more (probably because I got to the redeem code page through my back button, and the POSTDATA is thing being mad at me)
    EDIT2: From the Xbox website:

    Everything seems to break whenever they have things like this :rolleyes: But the thing I don't get is that I can log into Xbox Live on my 360 but not on the Xbox website.
    The giveaway page is working just great though. Maybe I'll just stockpile codes to use tomorrow after the Redeem Codes thing gets fixed.

    EDIT: ...and they ran out of codes. No wonder there's no more issues with the page.

    signup and redeem code is working again

    3200 points, not a bad haul, wish I had more so I can sell them on ebay for $4-5 each

    the site is still out of codes, doubt they will restock seeing how it was abused
