    get up to 800 points? that doesn't add up shouldn't it be 1,000? 600+300+100= 1,000. or am I doing the math wrong?

    This doesn't sound like a healthy thing to promote...although I'll likely get 100 points out of it anyways.

    Up to a max of 800 points. Damn. I was really hoping they'd give you 1k points for playing Halo 4. That'd be pretty nice. Still cool to see they're giving back at least.

    Wow! "We pay you to have no life" Less outdoor equals more points. Bullcrap

    hey that spam is actually a little bit related to the article.

    Considering I tend to get the most out of my multiplayer games, this is actually quite cool. I might actually do this.

    I... I like this! The more I play a game, the more legit rewards I get in the real world? Free stuff here I co--oh, wait. I'm a broke-ass college student and can't get this game yet.

    God, if they did this for Fallout 4...

    If you were to attempt to play 140+ hours this month, you would have to play an average of about 6 hours a day every day for the rest of the month.

    And you think that nobody will reach this milestone?
  • WOFxnine - November 7, 2012 5:07 a.m.

    140+ hours of gameplay is unrealistic in a months time.
  • Kyo - November 7, 2012 9:25 a.m.

    The sad part is it really isn't that unrealistic of a goal for some fanboys. lol I only "like" halo enough to have bought the game to play with my friends, I'm not a fanboy so there's no way in hell I'd spend hours and hours playing this to the point of boredom. BUT some people? I'm sure there are a lot of addicts that have been playing the game almost nonstop since it's midnight launch. lol

    To be honest that's a brilliant scheme and I hope it catches on. Effectively rewarding loyal fans with a free DLC pack is a lovely touch. All publishers do this please.

    It would be nice to turn my 400 hours in Mass Effect 3 multiplayer into Microsoft points.
  • avantguardian - November 7, 2012 3:01 a.m.
