My friend's birthday is this month so he received his "special gift" from Microsoft.... a whole whopping 20msp. Not even 200, just Twenty Microsoft points. The *bleep* can you even buy for 20msp?! lmao.
If he saves that every year for the next four years, he can buy a cowboy hat for his avatar.

This isn't a bad deal for doing what you already enjoy.

Roy - As interesting it is, like I said before they are just trying to get people to shut up that we should get rewarded for GS. Though, if it's someone's birthday next month I would love to hear about the item that they give for it.
Hey, my birthday is in November too.

Also if you look at the bottom it says the estimated value of the birthday gift is a whopping $0.25.

Like I said, 25k is a lot of money. Even if you get a game that gave you 1k G with achievements that's 25 games. Chances are you aren't going to 100% 25 games, and I think XBLA games are capped at 800 G for achievements. I think I have about 30 games but I'm only at 3k G
XBLA games used to be capped at 200G, only recently they were raised to 400G.

I have 90K Gamerscore btw.

Wow, totally feel like I should fork out the $90 and renew my Gold subscription, just so that I could get the...shit, I can't even get the first rebate.

And here I was thinking they were rolling out something like the PS+. You know, that thing that is completely optional but gives you free games all the time?

That's 25,000 gamerscore, not points. You're just being rewarded for having that gamerscore, basically. You get that by playing, exactly like trophies. You aren't spending anything(aside from the gold membership, and whatever you purchase throughout the month) to get the rebate.

It's better than nothing, sure, but it's not much of a reward the way they're hyping it up with three levels. 25,000 points is a LOT of money. Saving $0.25 isn't much of a reward for having spent that much.

That's just their way to get people to shut up for being loyal tekmosis. I would love to see a system similar to PSN for gold.

Haha CAGarber! I'm one of those people that uses their Xbox more for netflix than gaming, but that is mostly because I have no games that entertained me. It's probably changing soon.
I'm guilty of it sometimes. I'm just referring to the people you NEVER EVER see gaming (my wife) lol

I'm not saying it's a real savings, but most consumers see "Oh man free money!" and will do it. It's just a basic sales tactic.
