So the games 400 MS points this week, I just added 500 points and clicked on the promo on Xbox(UK) Spotlight, then the download screen tells me it's 800 points still, am I doing it wrong? :-/

Most likely a bug that they will fix... something that seems to happen a lot with MS promos.

Its likely a bug it happens sometimes...and wait you added 500 points? why not just the straight 400? *or does it work different in the UK?*

I know that in Australia the minimum is 500 points, I believe the American minimum is 100?

That. Here you still buy in 500 point increments. Annoying to the max. 
 
Also, why won't this game come out on Steam? I'm not going to be near my xbox for the next year... If Shank and Braid made the transition...

Mystery solved, I forgot these deals of the week were for Gold members only, I've only got silver right now. Shame, was looking forward to playing the game.
 
I find it ridiculous though that we're still dealing with Microsoft's own brand of currency. If they offered to just sell games for valid currency, with no points system, then I wouldn't have just wasted the 4-5 bucks, I wouldn't mind if I could just add another 400 points and even it out to buy the game at full price, but even though it adds up to pennies, I don't want to have the 100 leftover points.  Bah, I understand it was MY mistake that led to all of this but it's a frustrating system that has no benefit to the user.

Just got it.
What difficulty should i be playing on? Does it matter if i pick the easiest? Will i get the achievements?

@Forcen:
I picked medium and i'm still getting all the achievments.  You can just keep hitting continue when you run out of lives and you get to keep your progress on the map and your level plus stats so it doesn't really matter too much.
