Give EA your Microsoft Points, get some back

EA is holding a deal on Xbox Live where if you buy three of their products, they give back 800 MS Points. The selection of titles is quite varied — from Mass Effect and Dead Space to several Need for Speed, Madden and Burnout titles — and games old and new(er) are included, so someone who’s missed some big hits of the last few years can do some catching up and get off with a little thicker wallet than they would outside the festive season. The deal applies to US and UK-based accounts only and ends on January 31st. Full list of games follows.
