It's finally happening. Xbox today revealed its plans to offer discounts and gifts to gamers, based on gamerscore. If you have a Gamerscore of over 25,000, you'll get a 2 percent rebate on Xbox Live purchases. Gold members with more than 10,000 Cheevo points get 1 percent off. If you've been slacking and your score is only over 3,000, you'll get a gift for your birthday. No word on what that gift will be, but its estimated value is a quarter. I'm thinking an avatar award. Perhaps a cheerful party hat?
The "current phase" of the offer runs through June of 2013, and if you're hardcore about your numbers, you'll hit the maximum rebate amount: 30,000 Microsoft Points
Here's the site to sign up for your Xbox Live rebates and birthday gift.
