So you finally got that special Achievement on your favorite XBox 360 game and notice it’s worth a whopping 25 gamerscore. Now what does that mean? Are they worth anything? Can you trade them in for cash or Microsoft Points? After all you worked so hard to get them!
Let’s start with what Gamerscore is exactly. Gamerscore is the amount of points you have earned from getting Achievements on your XBOX 360. Everyone who plays XBOX 360 will eventually get an achievement, sometimes without any effort at all. You get achievements by completing a specific task in a game like getting 10 head shots in a row or even completing a level while playing with others in a multi-player game!
So what is all your XBOX 360 Gamer score worth to you? Well basically the only thing they are really worth is the satisfaction of rubbing in your buddies faces that you are better than them! So, I regret to inform you that, no, you cannot exchange your XBOX 360 Gamer score, for Microsoft Points.
You may not be able to redeem your Gamer score for Microsoft Points or cool prizes, but Achievement hunting can be rewarding and fun. Hearing that familiar water drip sound when you complete that special challenge is reward enough. Isn’t it?
