Xbox Rewards

Xbox Rewards was a Microsoft program designed to give both casual and hardcore players incentives to play games on the Xbox 360. This worked by having gamers register online for specific challenges, with completion then tracked by the system whenever the gamer was connected to Xbox Live. Gamers who successfully completed a challenge, such as earning a certain quantity of achievement points within a given time period, could earn physical or virtual rewards.

In order to register with the program the participant had to live in the United States or United Kingdom, be at least 13 years old, have access to an Xbox 360, and have a valid Windows Live ID with an Xbox Live gamercard linked to it. However, since the challenges were sponsored by specific companies, certain challenges required specific games or codes from non-Microsoft products.

This program was initiated on February 12, 2007 with the "Old Spice Experience Challenge". Since then, the program has languished, with the primary URL now generating a "page not found" error when visited.

Levels

After initially registering, the gamer was placed into one of three different brackets or levels, based on current Gamerscore. According to Microsoft, this value was meant to be an annual calculation, with gamers being required to continue to increase their Gamerscore on a regular basis in order to avoid dropping in level. However, in reality, levels were not calculated based on time, only on total Gamerscore. The levels were:

  1. Level 1 (0 – 4,999 annual Gamerscore)
  2. Level 2 (5,000 – 9,999 annual Gamerscore)
  3. Level 3 (10,000+ annual Gamerscore)

Microsoft had indicated that some challenges may only be open to members of certain levels. Furthermore, the completion requirements and/or rewards could vary depending on the gamer's level.

Challenges

Old Spice Experience Challenge (2/12/2007)
