Ok, please, before everyone starts freaking out with the "OMG M$ broke their own rulez!!1!" hear me out and understand why I think this is actually a legit move on their part.
First of all, if you didn't click that link to read the rules, Microsoft has currently set an 80 achievement/1750 point cap on all games that are increased through downloadable content, with a 250 point per quarter (3 month) stipulation. All in agreement, yes? Good.
Now, here is a game that has now hit 2000. Rules broken? Not quite. Dawn of War II is a PC-exclusive game at retail. It's sequel/expansion "Chaos Rising" will also be through retail outlets only. So, therein lies the rub. It's not downloadable content! Flimsy? Yeah, but I believe their "rules" may still be intact. And really, they are still two completely separate retail games, their achievement lists just happen to be merged together.
Regardless, the original 1000 points have all been edited on xbox.com (and of course here) to include "in Dawn of War II" at the end to signify what the original list was, with 24 new achievements being added for the upcoming expansion (all stipulating "in Chaos Rising" in their descriptions), adding a full retail's worth of 1000 gamerscore on top of the original list.
So here you have it, folks. Another first in the history of gamerscore! Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising is due March 11th in the US and the 12th in Europe.
