Why Microsoft's MyAchievements Program is an Insult

Original-Gamer.com: "Revealed two weeks ago, Microsoft unveiled their achievement rewards project called MyAchievements which gave Xbox Live Gold subscribers the chance to earn Microsoft Points for achievements they’ve earned previously and purchase items with a small refund. For those who don’t know, the way it works is if you have an achievement score of 3000 or above, you get rewarded for it."

1. An achievement/trophy is something you have a choice not to get.

and now that they decide to do something with them its an insult?? DON'T PARTICIPATE IN IT.

I do agree with the article though, "This program is a pure public relations sham." hit the nail on the head

As long as it's free I don't care. However, I agree it's practically a pointless addition. 20 MS points every birthdate month, and 1% - 2% back.

How about 200 MS points and 10% - 20% back.

Then don't sign up for the reward program. It's that simple. Next?

People need to understand criticism is necessary for people to see the potential of something.
If you are satisfied w/ the status quo, then great.

Otherwise, if you think something is lacking, it's good to be vocal about it. The worst thing that could happen is that they ignore it. On the other hand, you might get a re-haul of an service.

Very well said. I know it is more (a whole 25 cents more lol) than before, but we are paying for Xbox Live.

Bout time consumers bargained for a better deal. They are a multi-national, multi-billion dollar company that could buy your house, your car (and probably your husband/wife) a million times over.

The point that some people really think their achievements / trophies have a real money - countervalue is just retarded. So no, this is not an insult. How on earth can anyone say he wants more money / discounts for his gaming performance. Ridiculous.

I would suggest not signing up for it then. I think the bigger insult would be to offer nothing, yet again another case where gamer's feel entitled. Seriously, how can people complain about free stuff?
