I wonder just how much money MS has made with people spending points. More than half the stuff that people use for points should be free, considering we have to pay for Live + game(s) + Console + accessories.

W....T....F, i'd expect this from nintendo, but........this sounds pretty gay, at least nintendo probably wouldn't charge for crap like this.

I don't wanna picky (just pedantic!) but I reckon that kid's Korean, not Chinese...
He's in an E-Mart shopping bag which is a large Wal-Mart style shopping chain in South Korea...
Of course it could be a Chinese boy living in Korea, then conviently packaged in the bag...
I wonder if there is a shrink wrapped version...?

On topic...
Want a pet but don't want to fork out the cash...
Hopefully we can unlock mini-dragons in games...
