Spotted on Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE Rewards Twitter account, the above tweet announces that coming this fall, Achievements will net you Rewards. Achievement unlocked indeed.
We’ve hit 50,000 followers, which means it’s time for an announcement! Coming Fall: a new way to earn Rewards based on your Achievements!

Unfortunately, that was all that was announced, with no mention of what the Rewards would be, though a quick look at the Xbox LIVE Rewards page shows rewards like small sums of Microsoft Points and contests with very large amounts of Microsoft Points as the reward, so hopefully, Achievements will net you Microsoft Points. Then, you could buy DLC that unlocks new Achievements to get, which in turn will net you some Microsoft Points, which will help you buy that next DLC pack, and you’ll never stop playing video games for the rest of your life and you’ll die from malnourishment. Hooray!
- Sony tried something similar once upon a time
- DLC Quest makes fun of the the very thing you spend Microsoft Points on
- Hackers reportedly generated $1.2 million in Microsoft Points
