Microsoft has started a new Xbox Live Rewards scheme, whereby gamers get free MS points for taking certain actions – mostly revolving around buying stuff.
For example, if you renew your rolling monthly Gold subscription, you now get 10 MS points (don’t spend them all at once, now). More impressively, a year’s sub renewal gets you 200 MS points, a song and a quarter on Rock Band. A family pack gold renewal earns 400 MS points.
Basically, it’s all free stuff so you can’t go wrong, although those who’ve only just renewed their subscription or installed Sky Player may feel a pang of annoyance at their timing.
To sign up for the rewards program, just head on over here.
