This has to be the most ridiculous thing ever to be seen with regards to the 360's gamerscore system.
And the worst about it is, that people are going to avail of this service.
Thats absolutely ridiculous! Its isn't an achievement if you didnt get it yourself!
Its like when you read the achievement list and it says 'Play 50 games', or 'Play for 50 hours' or something like that! And you think, 'I havent achieved anything by playing a game for that long or that many times!'. I call for a stop to developers making 'play for' achievements, and replacing them with 'win' achievements! And I DEFINATELY call for noone to flock to people like this to boost your gamerscores! JUST PLAY AND WIN THE GAMES YOURSELF!
SO AGREE. THIS IS PLAIN STUPID! WHO WANTS TO PAY 299$ TO GET 3000GP? HAHAHA, LAUGHING OUT LOUD, THIS IS STUPID, CANT STOP LAUGHING.
I had to change the title make it sound more melodramtic. :D
I mean if anyone signs up this crap you should be shot, hung and quartered.
What is so ridiculous about the 360's gamerscore system? I mean I totaly agree that site is ridiculous, it pretty much defeats the purpose of the gamerscore system...
I think they did a great job with the gamerscore system. Right now my gamerscore is at 13000 and Iam proud to say I unlocked every single one of those acheivements my self.
for me gamerscore lost its appeal within two weeks...
I used to play games for the gamerscore but then I realised whats the point, but I in no way condone people who dolike gamerscore whoring but for me personally I think its useless (unless they make microsoft reward points for getting to a certain amount of gamerscore points)
For me it helps keep the game new.. Usually I will beat a game once and be done with it. Some acheivements you have to beat a game like 3 times and do all this different stuff in the game that you normally would not do...
That our fall update will also prevent this from happening as well.
I don't understand how it isn't illegal considering it consists of another user accessing and manipulating another players account.
They must have found some sort of loophole.
You're basically giving them permisssion to access your account and play games for you. That's what I understand.
Say for example that you want 1000 gamer points, well then they will sign on as you and then beat a game of Madden or something until they get the points you want.
Agree with what ppl r sayin why wud any idiot want to do this to get a few xtra pts? At end of day u dont get anything for it so this is just ludicrous. I bet my life also they use gamesaves to dump onto 360 to get the achievements easy so they'll be raking money in without even doin anything
300 bucks for 3000 gamerpoints?
Just buy 3 freaking games for $180, and SLAP IN THE FACE THE GUY THAT RUNS THAT WEBPAGE WITH THE REMAINING $120!!!
what a joke...
they're actually serious (or at least the site would make it seem so)- probably a scam
Surely no one would consider spending that amount of money just for more points. £300 for 3000 points eh? You could buy your self another 360.
Just play and enjoy the games, whatever point you get is what you get. Some are so hard to achieve you've got to have the patience of a saint.
hahahahaahahaha bull ***
You would have to be a complete idiot to pay for this...rich idiot at that. The problem with the gamer point system is that we are making celebs out of these guys. Websites need to STOP doing stories and running contests for these point whores. The more attention we give to it the more others will try to PAY their way into fame. Personal pride in achieving goals is fine, but this chest beating crap needs to go right out the window.
Im going to do this. This, is what I have been waiting for. I suck I need this. I can`t wait to hand over my personel info. And my coveted xbox-live account to complete strangers so they can also access my bank info at will. I am going to be the highest gamer score player in the world. Sweet. WTF!!
Here's hoping the business tanks.
Wow... that's pretty sad.
This actual website or someone like PS3Ultimate actually thinking this is cool and voting for it.
wow that's so lame lol, although I will say I have been stuck at 3 stars FOREVER! But I don't get much playing time really
This is just a sad thing to see. I mean its one thing to buy special parts to assist you in a game, but to actually pay someone to play for you to make you look better? OMG....how pathetic. At the end of the day....even if you use the service YOU will know you are still a sh*tty player. Just really pathetic.
sean14232 - I truly hope you are being sarcastic.
Like others have said you have to be a total dumbass to do this. In my opinion Gamerscore whoring is just pathetic. I have personally seen this whoring going off on the side like in games like Battlefield 2:MC and Prey. I don't see why people find it an addiction to increase their gamerscore ten fold.
Ya this is stupid. i want to earn my own points and play the games myself
And I thought Gameshark was dumb.
These guys are assholes, earn your reward I just got past the 5000 mark and I earned it.
I'm gonna pay 600 bucks and get 6000 points just to beat you....psshhh
holy crap $300 for 3000 gamerpoints i could do that in a day or two if i picked up some easy games and beat them and the point of acheivements is to earn them yourselves y would any1 want them to earn these for you and pay them rediculous amounts of money to do it too
who cares if someone got the points the right way or by cheating. Its only games people. if you kick their @ss then you kick their @ss, that what should matter not their scores. Man these things mean too much to you people. While saying that, I gotta admit I have become a Gamerscore sl#t! LOL!
damn, i'm heading for 9000, i wish i had made some money!
That is stupid for someone to do. I like the gamerscore so I can look back on the things I accomplished in the games and show my friends. The gamerscore wouldnt be any fun to me if I had someone else getting all of them for me.
I dont care if someone has a higher gamerscore than me. Maybe I like playing one game alot and dont like the ones he/she beat and I didnt get any points for it. I feal sorry for the people playing games just looking at the achienvments and not realy enjoying the game. I mean its give a cool feeling to get an achievment but you realy shouldnt let your gamerscore mess with your gaming experience.
I'm mean if you got all the achievments and and you still like to mess around or replay the game then do it. It realy comes down to having fun not your gamerscore. I know I have alot more fun playing the games than achievment hunting.
