And now for a bit of news that many will believe is long overdue: you’ll finally be able to earn rewards for cranking up your Gamerscore.
A new program called MyAchievements will dish out rewards based on your Gamerscore. An Xbox Live Gold Subscription and signing up for Xbox Live Rewards will net you access to the program, which contains three tiers of prizes that correspond to a certain quantity of Gamerscore.
Players with 3000-9999 Gamerscore will receive a gift with an approximate retail value of $0.25 during their birthday month and will be known as Contenders. The next level, Champions, occurs from 10000-24999 and earns players the same gift as Contenders as well as a 1% rebate on any Xbox Live Marketplace purchases every month with the exceptions of Microsoft Points and Gold subscriptions. Players who crack 25000+ Gamerscore will be called Legends and will receive the birthday gift and a 2% rebate on any Xbox Live Marketplace purchases every month, with the same exceptions as Champions.
Microsoft has already implemented a number of loyalty reward programs for Xbox Live, but this is one fans have clamored for since the announcement of Achievements. Are you excited for this news? Sound off in the comments to let us know!
