Who said Achievements were useless? Microsoft doesn’t think so and they’re going to start rewarding Xbox Live users with some bonuses!
Microsoft announced Xbox Live Rewards today giving Xbox Live Rewards members who pass certain Gamerscore milestones different incentives for their dedication.
Unlock between 3000 and 9999 Gamerscore points and players will receive a special gift on their birthday albeit one with a value of only 15 points.
If players earn between 10,000-24,999 Gamerscore, they’ll receive both the birthday gift and be entitled to a 1% rebate on all purchases from Xbox LIVE Marketplace every month.
Players who have unlocked 25,000+ Gamerscore, meanwhile, will earn a 2% rebate on all purchases every month and the birthday gift.
