Earn Xbox LIVE Rewards Through Achievements

8bitfix writes: Microsoft has announced a new way to earn Xbox LIVE Rewards. To be quite honest, I'm not sure why it has taken so long for them to offer this kind of incentive. I suppose it was announced due to their Twitter feed reaching 50,000 followers. The only reason I know this is because they just announced it this morning! I think I'm game for a reward announcement!

The story is too old to be commented.

Wahoo! About time. So I guess this means Stallion83 is gonna get a crap ton of prizes

It won't be based on past achievements but on future ones. It has nothing to with twitter. Its been held for right now in the end of a generation to encourage ppl to play. They may give something based on a scale like 0-20000 & 20- 40000 initially maybe.

All I want from Sony and Microsoft is similar to what ff13 did. If I get a platinum trophy or all achievements or hard ones or I reach a milestone like 25000 gamer score, give me a gamer pic, avatar item, a wallpaper. Something to show others what I have accomplished. How awesome would it be to get a gold Rolex for my avatar or a pic for my PlayStation account. Something would be nice. $ always is.

I sure hope not. I've got a fairly good amount that I could redeem for prizes.

Some Xbox titles already do that (PS3 maybe, but I can't say). For example, in the L4D games, you can unlock some avatar props (medkit and some T-shirts), Halo 3 (or Reach) lets you unlock the monitor as a prop, and other games give you game pics as well.

Sounds like a great idea to me! :D

Ahh now this is more like it. Hopefully they're backdated, it would be nice to have a load of MS points added to my account for all the games I've played in the past 6 or so years.

NoobJobz2218d ago

I wonder if it will include past games? I would think so but I could also see them saying only games played from now on. Either way, I'm just glad they finally started doing this.

This is perfect, I hope this goes in effect with all future, pass and present games when this gets released. Lol its bout time I get rewarded the proper way when I'm playing my games.
