My take on the points thing is that you list the points when you buy them.  You aren't buying the game, just allocating the previously purchased points.  Cue Cincinnati...

Oh, as long as you are consistent, it's not going to make a difference one way or the other.  If any any year you bought $60 worth of Live Points, I bet you spent around $60 worth of Live points.  There will be some overlap from year to year but either way of counting it is going to be reasonably accurate.

Uh oh....game sharing on the PS3 could make this even more complicated.  Do we count it on a game by game basis or do we just count what we each contribute on a regular basis.  I think we may need to send this to NASA to figure out.   ;)

Update to add a bluetooth headset.  I only bought it to use on the PS3 and that's why it's included.

Thanks for participating, everyone!  I enjoyed doing it last year and look forward to the fiscal transparency.  It is going to be alot more expensive for me this year because I got a $250 BB giftcard last year.

And I look forward to the usual Enron-style accounting games.  ;)

Oh, and updated.

We do want this to be entertaining. 

Jeff is obviously Jeffrey Skilling, Mike is Andy Fastow, Jeremy is was Cliff Baxter (sorry) and Allen can be Ken Lay/Sherron Watkins.  I am Lou Pai, AKA the one that got away.

RSV was obtained and billed for in 2007 so I'll start off the year with that.
