Start up your XBOX, go to the "Spotlight" menu, and look for an Inside XBOX video titled "New Features." During the showing of Games on Demand, notice how Mass Effect shows a price of 1600 points, not 20 dollars. It wasn't too much of a stretch to believe that they may have gone back on the "real money" pricing after seeing that feature, but now that the games are available, they are being priced in dollars.
