Gamerscore. Gamerpoints are what you buy stuff on the market place with.

Those are Microsoft Points.

Gamerscore. Gamerpoints are what you buy stuff on the market place with. Actually it's mircosoft points you use to purchase things.

It's officially gamerscore, I've also never heard anyone use gamerpoints before.

Well, I call them gamerpoints because they're points that I buy games with. I've never heard anyone call gamerscore gamerpoints so......

Never heard them being called gamerpoints. I've heard individual achievements and games being described as worth X points, but not the total as a whole.

From the beginning it has been Gamerscore. Theres no grey area here, Microsoft have always called it Gamerscore, and so should everyone else.

If I was from some third world country and knew very little English then I would go with Gamer points. But as of now I'll stick with gamerscore.

Has no one really heard of Gamerpoints? I swear people called it that. Someone even called it GP in another thread. I didn't know Gamerpoints was such an unknown term.
EDIT: It's referred to as Gamerpoints here:

Never heard the other terminology before, but from the links maybe it is quite common. But I was Gamerscore.

Same, I've heard Gamerscore and Mircosoft Points but never heard any one called it Gamerpoints... Is that a mix when you get MS points and Achivements all in one?

I've heard it called both of those, but gamerscore sounds better.

Achievement Points or Achievement Score. Just kidding

Gamerscore is correct, this thread reminds me of the movie Domino.

Blactino, Blackasain, Hispasian, Chinegro, Chispanic and my fav Japanic.

Just thrown words together.

Gamerscore.

I've never, in my time playing on the Xbox360, heard someone say gamerpoints in reference to Achievement or Gamerscore in any context... until this thread now.

Though i have heard Achievement Points been thrown around a bit.

i wonder who voted for points ^^

Um. I was always under the impression that individual achievements yielded "Gamerpoints" and your collective score was, in fact, "GamerScore."

I could be completely and utterly wrong though.
