Microsoft redesigns UK points, subscription cards

Considering the upcoming changes to the North American Live packaging, Microsoft has seen fit to redesign the inlays across the pond for consistency. Live subscriptions and points cards fall under the same design calling out Games for Windows and Xbox 360 much like the North American packages but include a few key U.K. elements.

The packages (12 month Live and the 4200 MS Points cards) images from hit films as 300 and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets promote the recent activation of the European Video Marketplace while Halo 3, Call of Duty 4 and FIFA Soccer are promoted for their multiplayer elements. While the same design is expected to be used for 3 month subscription and 3200 point cards Microsoft didn't release those images in their press conference. From taking a look at the images in their hi-res glory we can safely say we like the new look, we did however miss the fine print that says Xbox Live isn't guaranteed to be working all of the time.
