Microsoft and Discovery Channel are gearing up to give away two million Microsoft points real soon.

The points will be given away to herald the new season of "Future Weapons," a show that highlights all the new and high-tech ways in which you might be killed in the not-too-distant future.

The giveaway can be accessed via the Discovery Channel's Future Weapons Web site. Details for the giveaway have yet to be posted at the time of this blog's writing, but Microsoft representatives are positive such information will appear, and shortly.

Two million Microsoft points, by the by, will buy you a near-infinite number of copies of Frogger. And Dig Dug.
