Xbox Live Rewards glitch awarding extra MS Points

Either there's something wrong with the Xbox Live Rewards program, or it has become very, very rewarding indeed. Reports have been circulating today that Xbox Rewards members have been receiving an extra helping of MS Points in their Xbox Live accounts. Just how big an extra helping? Well, that seems to vary, along with exactly which members are getting the excess points.

We can confirm that at least some Rewards members are definitely getting extra points, as two of our own staff members found their accounts overflowing with Microsoft space bucks earlier today. In one case, as evidenced by the image after the break, the same amount of points was deposited a whopping seven times.

Microsoft is currently "investigating" the issue.
