Microsoft has launched a new Xbox LIVE Rewards scheme where gamers will receive certain rewards and discounts on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace after achieving Gamerscore milestones.
If you've unlocked between 3,000-9,999 Gamerscore on your Xbox LIVE profile, you'll be sent a "Special Gift" on your birthday. According to Microsoft the discount will only amount to 15p.
Earning between 10,000-24,999 Gamerscore you'll be entitled to a birthday gift and 1% rebates on all purchases from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace every month.
Unlocking a 25,000 Gamerscore will give you 2% rebate on all purchases every month as well as a birthday gift.
You'll have to sign up to the offer by activating the rewards scheme on your Xbox LIVE Gold account.
Those discounts can be applied to Games on Demand, Arcade Games, Game Add-ons and Avatar items but purchases of MS points or Xbox LIVE memberships are excluded.
You can also earn free MS points by taking part in surveys and buying items on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
What do you think of this new incentive? Are you happy with the service or do you believe it's time that Microsoft give up the points system and do something similar to what Sony offers with the PlayStation Plus Subscription and benefits
