Microsoft: Swag for Points


Microsoft and Old Spice are giving out a bounty of goodies for Xbox 360 owners who go on Xbox Live and increase their gamerscore by 1,500 points in 60 days.

According to Microsoft, "Xbox 360 is teaming up with Old Spice to bring the first Rewards Challenge to Xbox Live. Gamers will be charged with increasing their gamerscore by 1,500 between February 12 and April 12, 2007. That?s 60 days to bring your overall gamerscore up by 1,500 for the chance to earn a bounty of rewards.   In order to participate, you need to have a valid Windows Live? ID with your Xbox LIVE? gamercard linked, be a legal resident of the 50 United States and District of Columbia (expect future challenges to be global in scope) and at least thirteen years-old."

Prizes for people who compete the challenges vary depending on the player's gamerscore at the time of entry. The swag includes free T-shirts, games, dashboard themes, games, and Microsoft points (which can be used to buy more stuff online through Xbox Live).
