    I'm planning to buy NFS Hot Pursuit 2 from Windows Phone Store which costs Rs.260. I find an option there to pay by Microsoft Gift Card code. So if I buy a $15 Microsoft gift card,will it work?And whether I should buy a Microsoft Gift Card or a Xbox Gift Card?

    Link to the game: NFS: Hot Pursuit | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (भारत)

    But did you notice that XBOX LIVE is written with NFS Hot Pursuit 2 at Windows Store.So MS Gift card will work for that?

    Doesn't matter. Its still a Windows Phone game, just with the Xbox branding, it doesn't make it an Xbox game.

    Yes, a Microsoft card will work for any of that.

    this isn't the case anymore. Microsoft has merged the accounts for Xbox/Windows 8.1/Windows Phone 8. I recently redeemed a $3 Xbox gift card from Bing Rewards and I was able to use that balance to buy an app on my 920.

    Thank You too. Will the currency will be a problem??Because MS gift card is in USD$ and my country is India,that is Indian Rupees.

    that didn't work for me. I got an Xbox card for Christmas and it didn't redeem to my phone or SP2.

    I don't think so, MS is using local currency, but I'm not 100% sure
