I heard somewhere that the Americans get "rewards" for getting such a certain gamerscore. Is this true? If so why don't we?

Sounds like an American was just talking trash and trying to make you jealous. Apparently he succeeded.

I take it that you don't recieve anything then. I do think that you should get some kind of reward for getting gamerscore as you are spending a lot of money on games. Something like 500 microsoft points everytime you get 1000g or something.

That would make them go broke. I just wish they would have another Old Spice Challenge, they said they might do another one but more than a year later and nothing.

It would be nice if we could at least get free games on the XBLA or the market. For milestones like 50k, 100k, 150k, or 200k you could get something special, but what I don't know. They won't do this though, because like someone has already said, it would cost them to much money.

Why would they give out freebies for people earning gamerscore?? Games arnt made for gamerscore if they was there woudnt be games where you can earn a 1000gs in a matter of hours. There not forcing you to get gamerscore you get it because you want to.

Like other people mentioned, there was an Old Spice Challenge awhile back. You had two months to get a certain number of points and the quicker you did it, the more prizes you got.

Xbox Rewards was a promotion designed to provide gamers incentives to play on Xbox Live by subsidizing achievement points earned with actual rewards. Gamers were required to register for specific challenges which, if successfully completed, would yield a challenge-specific reward.

Well, we get pride for having large gamerscore's I suppose, but yeah.

I agree with all these posts, but money is the only thing Microsoft cares about.

There were two Old spice challenges in years past. The first one was promoted by Xbox.com and the second was promoted by 360voice.com. They both offered the same thing, rewarding gamers for earning gamerscore. They both offered similar prizes like Microsoft points, live subscriptions and such. The second one however offered some 12 month gamefly subscriptions.
In the first one users could "enter" to win prizes in 3 different categories that related to how much gs they had, then they had to obtain a certain amount of gs by a certain date. The second one was similar, but users got to create their own challenges so they could challenge their friends or random people.

PS3 trophies are excatlly the same as Achievements. Except they dont count towards a gamerscore type system i dont think.

I wish they had some sort of reward sytsem for high gamescore. Every 10k points, 20k, 50k maybe. Maybe even just something little like 200 ms points, or on free month of XBL. Things this little would not put Micsrosoft under either.

There system has a point system, but this is counted as experience and you never get to see this number.
Their system is all about Levels. The more trophies you get the more experience you get. Get the all the trophies in a game and you are rewarded with a platinum trophy that's worth a good chunk of exp.

Maybe they were talking about the Xbox Live Diamond card?

http://www.xboxlivediamond.com/

It's like a membership card that gives you discounts or coupons for certain stores. It used to be free but now they charge a yearly fee. Mine is kinda useless since there's nowhere around here that accepts it.

I remember thinking back in the day that 10k a year was a ridiculous amount of points to earn in a year. Back then I was also just 4.5k.

My friend told me this back when we first started playing. Now I know why they call him bullshit (name).
