Your Gamerscore Finally Matters Now

Posted on Friday, September 28 @ 16:58:01 Eastern by


Microsoft in a tweet in mid-July promised "a new way to earn Rewards based on your Achievements" to be announced in the fall. Now that promise has been fulfilled. Finally, your Xbox e-Penis actually means something.

Xbox Live Rewards through MyAchievements is now offering three tiers of player rewards and rebates depending on the player's total Gamerscore, as long as you are an Xbox Live Gold member. If you have at least 3000 Achievement Points (a Contender), you wil a earn a special gift during your birthday month; 10000+ (a Champion) nets an additional 1 percent rebate on all Xbox Live purchases; and 25000+ (a Legend) bumps that up to a 2 percent rebate.

As you can see in the picture above, I have qualified for all three rewards. (You know you want my Garrus eye piece.) However, considering that I have friends who have upwards of 60,000+ Achievement Points, I would have loved to have seen additional tiers beyond that which offer more rebates or perhaps special avatar rewards that you can show off to your friends.

To which tier do you belong?
