Since Microsoft has had a hard time really selling the Xbox 360 in Japan, they are now offering a slight incentive to try and get gamers in Japan to play more.
"Microsoft has launched a campaign that will pay 100 points ($1.25) to Xbox Live Gold members and 10 points to free members once they have played a collective of 300,000 hours together." Wow. Where do I sign up?
I'm guessing Xbox Japan's website should have the campaign listed w/ more details on how to be eligible.
i think he is being sarcastic. lol
I think he was replying in a smart a$$ fashion...
"Deal with it" Lol...
So are they trying to attract new 360 owners, or keep current ones?
Attract new ones. They figure that if they get more current xbox players to play then their friends will also buy the systems. It doesn't seem like the best way to get new customers but that's what they are trying.
I swear to god these incentives that Microsoft is trying to pull off as "a deal of a life time" are pretty pathetic. A whole $1.25 worth of points, I better start scrambling home and play. At least go for a whole $5.
They should do what sony did. Just give everyone $10. And send another $10 the next month in case they missed anyone.
Hey we're sorry we nuked you but here are some microsoft points.
How current of you!
I can do some thyroid jokes
Sony have PlayStation Plus, MS does this...
Sony also gave $10 PSN credit to "valued customers" out of the blue.
I think Xbox live Gold should be free in Japan
Wow. Pay all that money for a console and games and invest your time playing online and we'll give you $5.00. Not $5 that you can use to buy whatever you want though. No, we'll give you MS points. Okay...
It's funny how certain loyalty is re-paid.
so, given the nomber of xbox in japan times hours of the day, they should be able to claim, at the earliest, 21st of May... 2019. ^_^
i think xbox live should be free period.
