When Microsoft ran their Deal of the Week for Braid (the first DotW) at a discounted 800MSP, many people jumped at the chance. Unfortunately, due to some technical glitch, there was no discount and everyone was charged the full price of 1200MSP.Well, you should be receiving an e-mail and a refund soon if you were hit by this error, and as an added bonus, Microsoft are giving an "oops, our bad" bonus of 100MSP.
