Update: Buyer beware — some of the games on sale from now through March 4 aren't being discounted properly. We purchased El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, which is on sale for $2.99, with Microsoft Points instead of dollars and were charged 480 Microsoft Points ($6). We attempted to buy Dirt 2 (on sale for $4.99), and the Xbox Live Marketplace erroneously converted it to 440 Microsoft Points ($5.50).

According to Xbox Live community manager Eric Doty, Microsoft is aware of the issue and "should have it fixed later today."
