This week Microsoft revealed details on its Xbox Live Rewards Program, which gives players some incentives to buy games, DLC and get involved in certain activities on its service. The Rewards Program launches today. Most rewards seem to be for Gold Live account holders, though there are some rewards geared towards Silver users as well.
Some examples include 100 points for making a "first-time" purchase on Xbox Live Marketplace, 20 for buying a marketplace item, 200 for renewing a 12-month Gold Membership, and 100 for using a Gold Membership online.
The program is free to join, and Microsoft promises "cool prizes" besides points at some point later on down the road.
