Raise Your Gamerscore, Win Prizes

Microsoft has announced that it will be giving prizes to gamers who earn 1,500 points of Gamerscore on their Xbox 360 between February 12 and April 12. Starting Monday, if you can unlock enough achievements to get 1,500 extra points, you’ll receive prizes based on how much Gamerscore you’ve earned in the last year:

  • Level 1 - If you have a Gamerscore between 0-4,999 (over the last year), you get a free Game Picture, Dashboard theme, and Contra for Xbox LIVE Arcade
  • Level 2 - Between 5,000 and 9,999 Gamerscore, you get the Level 1 prizes, plus 100 Microsoft Points and a contest T-shirt
  • Level 3 - Above 10,000 Gamerscore, you get the Level 1 prizes plus 200 Microsoft Points, contest T-shirt and Fusion Frenzy 2.

Seems like a fun contest, one you can win by playing obsessively just two games (each game has at least 1,000 Gamerscore to be earned) for two months. I suspect you’ll see a nice press release at the end of the contest, touting the millions of points earned in the two month period. If you’ve exhausted the points in all of your favorite games, renting two or three games from Blockbuster is probably the cheapest way to earn the 1,500, or you can borrow games from a buddy.
