Strange title. On Xbox One I can get it to come up as available to rent when I search VUDU, but not when searching Amazon. A Bing search does not come up with any results for the movie title. If I do a Roku Search for it's shown to be available from Amazon, VUDU, Blockbuster and CinemaNow; canistream.it shows it available to rent from Amazon, iTunes, Google Play and VUDU. (For some weird reason you can rent it in HD or SD from Amazon for 99 cents--says so on Roku and on their website; on all the other sites it's $3.99 for SD and more for HD).

You can make up the difference with your CC applied to your account. Just a caveat, though...I would remove the CC (if you have one enabled), rent the movie/game etc... with your points. It will then say you don't have enough, and to add another payment source. Add your CC back in, and it will email you the breakdown. I have had to do this many times with DLC, since apparently taxes are needed since they are on a true monetary system now...(I've had 15.00 in GC's for CODAW DLC, and had to add the tax on a CC.)

I don't normally keep a card associated with my account.

Love my Xbox One, have my sky box running through it and everything is integrated nicely. Love being able to use voice commands to mute and pause, use it much more than I thought I would!

I think this is still state to state on taxes. I don't get taxed on Live or Amazon.

I'm not sure how they get away with it legally, but whatever... I had $51.50 in there, and I bought Season 5 for the Walking Dead for like $42 or whatever it was...

I have like $9.51 left over and have no idea what I might spend it on...
Thanks.. I think I spent all that money. I still have the same amount in my account today that I did yesterday. So I guess I must have spent it at some point. I do remember getting a large credit from the tens of thousands of points I had. But I have also purchased a lot of games digitally for my XBOnes since then.

I finally got around to playing GTA V for the very first time, on the Xbox One.

Wow, I'm so glad I stayed in the dark on this game for so long. It's like a special treat coming out of nowhere. You gotta just appreciate all the love that Rockstar takes with their worlds. This recreation of modern day Los Angeles is spectacular. Easily the best open world realized that I have seen.


Hopefully Todd Howard and his boys can take the title back, but right now, Rockstar holds the belt. This open world is freaking fantastic, and the graphics look very outstanding.

I was playing GTA V in my theater room on a 126" screen. I got to one point in the game, where I walked Franklin to a busy intersection near his house, I put it in first person mode, and just left him standing by the intersection. It was night time, cars were driving by, people were walking by, etc, etc.... My 126" screen looked like a window into another world almost. It was really weird, because at that size, if you set GTA V to the first person mode, and you get really close to your screen, it's almost like the world on the screen is perfect sized for your real sized body, and it's kinda weird.

Anybody with a huge projector screen and GTA V should try this. It's almost like playing in VR or something. Seriously... I was standing like 3 feet away from my screen (way over to the right, so my body wasn't in the lightpath), and the dimensions of everything going on, on screen, was like realistically sized to myself standing there. It was like I could walk out into that world almost. People were walking by, and they were the same height as me, and the sound effects and everything. The positional audio. It makes it sound so good.

Man, I give Rockstar some huge props for this world that they created. I honestly probably won't end up playing the game all that much, cause it's just not my style of game, but I can't help but give the devs all the props in the world for this amazing open world playground that they created. It's a true masterpiece.

Yeah--I've alway admired the GTA games. I tried one though and found that I don't particularly care to pretend to be a thug . Now, if I could be a police detective or something in one of their open worlds it'd be cool .

GTA is a game I always buy. It's a very polished game with a funny story mode.
