With at least 200ms points for each 1000G we get, what do you think?

Defaintely not, that is so stupid. Hey, I modded 100,000 GS give me 20,000 MSP.

Yeahhh, no.

HEY MICROSOFT, I PLAYED ALL THESE EASY 1000 GAMES THAT I BORROWED FROM A FRIEND. REWARD ME, I DID THIS ALL ON MY OWN FREE WILL.

As others have said, it would be open to abuse.

A better idea would be to make every game come with an avatar item/gamerpics/theme (maybe all 3) and tie them to achievements. Like, it would be a rule all games need to follow like having achievements in the first place.

This would be good, I only have one game where I can get avatar awards and it doesn't even tell me if I unlock gamerpictures.

I would love for more avatar unlockables in games. Got the shirt and sombrero from RDR. I have unlocked a few gamer pictures (where I got the pop-up message that one was unlocked) and none have been better than my Fallout:NV one.

On topic - no way Microsoft would give MSP for each 1k. They would prefer you to buy them.

I definitely agree with RadiantViper. Achievements should unlock extras like Avatar stuff, gamerpics, etc., More than just bonus content like 'making of' or concept art.

Microsoft giving things away for free . . . Lmao !!

Open to abuse yeah, I could see them give out some sort of "meta-game" award, with some basic avatar awards, but no points, or anything that would "lose" them money.

Then again, I am still perplexed by the bing offering..

Many people have said this would be a good idea.

IMO it's just stupid, hackers would get thousands of MSPs for doing nothing..

And why should MS reward us? I'm pretty sure playing games like Avatar that only take a few minutes to 1k shouldn't be rewarded.

I dont understand why people feel intitled to free stuff for doing nothing at all. Greedy, much?

It's a good idea in theory.
But as people have already established this system would be abused.
I think the new system of giving avatar rewards is pure gold as it makes your avatar unique and reflect the games you have and enjoy. I also believe the older system of unlocking gamer pictures is a genius idea as with achievements such as "Seriously..." It let's people know that you are badass at Gears of War, which is a good bragging right in my opinion.

If they did this Stallion would have 100000 free ms points. Nice.

I thought about this but I think 1000G to 200 MSP. Is WAY too much more like every 10000G - 100G. It's so little, but it would be so much effort to find out who did them legit.

LOL yeah that sounds like a good idea :p Reward me for getting rewards!

You do realize that gamer points are a reward system, right?

that doesn't make an ounce of cents. :P

But the every game should have avatar awards. That I agree with, I find more Arcade Games have awards than Retail. Out of all the retail games ive played only Reach, ODST and L4D2 have awards. Arcade- 6 that I own Perfect Dark, Comic Jumper, Splosion Man, MNC, LIMBO, and Hydro Thunder. and I can think of a few more off my head that I dont own. Earthworm Jim, Deathspank, South Park Lets Go Tower Defense Play!. You'd think it would be the other way around.

That's an idea, but if Microsoft has so much money, why can't it be 1 Gamerscore equal a dollar?

it would actually probably make microsoft more money than they would lose in the long run

you say yeah lets reward people buying easy games.

well if you think about it people are obsessed with achievements without point incentives. imagine the obsession with them. more people will buy games for their system over competitors systems. the charge for online so people who end up buying more online games may be inclined to finish them meaning microsoft can cash in on renewals at a more steady state

and their marketplace doesnt cost them much.

Reward system for buying crap of their marketplace would be nice.

Obviously, i'm not talking about hackers, i'm not talking about modding points, i'm talking about people like us, people who play games for fun, rewarding us for the achievements will give us enough ms points to buy at least one arcade game to play more.
Stupid or not, you would love that.

something else would be better like... idk something free, free tickets for something

Would be cool just to get something like you 100% the game heres thats games theme..

that would fuck up MS' business. they would never even consider such a thing.

An excellent idea, and I'd like to see more games have awards like l4d2, for example

Discounts will be much better and more equal to the other players.

Reward us?? What about Halo: Reach, Halo 3, Forza Motorsport, and Gears of War 2?

Lol'd

If that happens, I'd go buy all those easy 1k games

That would be interesting.

It would be cool to be rewarded, but it'll never happen. And, in the end, isn't that bleep-bloop reward enough? :p

this is not a great idea if anything they should reward people for being on xbox live for one year two years etc. Even though its not gonna happen it would be nice.

Microsoft can't differentiate between hacked scores and legitimate scores easily enough for a Microsoft point reward to be tangible. Besides, all of the man-hours put into completing a game make the 200 points worth nearly nothing in comparison to a part time job. 200 MS points are worth $2.50 American. Lets say you complete a really easy game, takes you about 4 hours to finish. Working a minimum wage job, you could earn 30 dollars in that 4 hours.

The good of giving legit gamers an insignificant little "good job" is in no way worth the boom in cheaters that would be seen because of this system. If someone was rewarded with MS points for gamerscore, there would be a massive increase in cheaters who hack their score for some free points. Sure Microsoft could stop some of the hackers, but the increased workload and effort on Microsoft's part would completely turn them off from this idea.

Microsoft would go broke. Not a good idea at all, and we're lucky that we sometimes get gamerpics and/or avatar awards.

Even if they could know which accounts were fraudulent accounts and which ones were not, they still wouldn`t do a promo like that. Would be awesome if they did something like this, but MS would never go for it.

MS will do promos every now and then but something on a regular basis would never be done by MS.

BTW I`m sure all of you have heard this but if you spend 2400 MSP in October you receive 800 free points in November I believe.

And there was a glitch on the Xbox.com website where you could download Fable II for free, here was that link:

I think it has since been disabled by MS but I`ve heard of some people having success downloading it still.

i just tried to D/L it and it said "congratulations, item is downloading." it said "free", but now it says purchased? lol, if i purchased it, that would suck. suck hard indeed.

It says i have already purchased it, which i haven't. So I am lead to thinking that it refers to the first episode which you could play for free, but not the entire game. You would have to buy a proper copy if you wanted to continue.

I might be wrong though.

supposedly it's the full game if you can get achievements and get to bowerstone, which is where the first episode ends.
