Microsoft has unveiled the long rumored Rewards program for members of Xbox Live
. The program, which you can register for at this link
,, gives out Microsoft Points to dedicated gamers for doing things that they would normally do while playing online. The “price grid” for the program can be viewed below.
There are different prize amounts offered for various actions depending on whetther you are a Free or Gold member of the Xbox Live service. The prizes can range from a few points for simply taking a monthly survey to a couple of hundred for subscription purchases and Marketplace purchases.
I am curious to see how the public responds to this program and whether or not Microsoft builds on the foundation that they have laid with its announcement. There are plenty of options available to promote and expand this program, but Microsoft will have to stick with it and truly support it in order for it to become successful...
