Hey Donkeyboy.
I've downloaded the trial of Rez HD (no local gameshops have MS points in stock).
Am I right in thinking that, in reality, I've downloaded the full game and once I get the points I just "unlock" the full version?

It is absolutely stunning on the eyes & ears though, isn't it?


[edit]
BTW it costs us the equivalent of $20 (I think) here in the UK.

Yes, you're correct in thinking that.  The "trial version" is the full version of the game that hasn't been purchased, therefore there's no way to play the full version until 800 points have been exhausted on "unlocking" the game's DRM to your machine. 

Yes, it is stunning.  I never thought vector graphics could look that nice.

If it costs you $20, that's fucked up.  It costs us 800 points here, which at a conversion rate of $1 to 80 points, 800 points = $10.  The conversion rates for English Pounds or Euros may differ, I'm not too sure.  I'd be interested to see the international conversion table, actually.

they screw the british over with the exchange rate all the time. kinda gets annoying (when I lived there). the british end up paying 2x as much for the same thing.

Gayness.  Well, for all the people who would care, of which there are none - I am now ranked #53 in the world in Rez HD.  And I plan to go upwards.

well duh... hello to socialism.

Instead of buying services on your own in the free market, you pay alot in taxes.

That way you're only paying for the services... and a huge gov't bureaucracy.

Yep and they are licensing out parts of the NHS to private companies which obviously run at a profit and so it works out much worse off for everyone.

^^ Lol, just read the above posts and we are talking about taxes and NHS? IMO people dog the NHS too much, end of the day its free health care, although there are loads of inequalities in the service provided and stuff. My family is with BUPA anyways....
