Well, if you didn’t know already, Microsoft is now promoting Xbox Rewards. If you take on the challenge, you get rewards. Sweet right? Yeah, assuming you can get on the site. 🙁 The first challenge started yesterday, but the site didn’t even come on-line to late afternoon—and pretty much nobody could get on! Blah! I finally got signed in earlier today, but it wasn’t till a few moments ago that I could sign up for the challenge.
Of course, the whole point of this is for us to game more and, of course, buy more games to boost your gamer score for the challenge. Sure, it means money in the gamers pockets for cheesy prizes—but who cares! I get an excuse to game! 1500pts, here I come!
As an aside, you do get a new Gamer card for joining the site:
PS: I also posted this at my GameSpot Blog if you care.
