Play Halo 4 online to get more Microsoft Points

A couple of months ago, Microsoft announced that Xbox 360 players who had a high enough Gamerscore would be able to get some rewards, such as a small refund every month for box Live Marketplace purchases. Now, with the launch of Microsoft's sci-fi shooter Halo 4, the company is offering players of that game an even nicer reward for their online play.

Microsoft has announced that, as part of its Xbox Live Rewards program, gamers who play Halo 4 online will be able to get some free Microsoft Points, which can be used to purchase games, music, video and other content on the Xbox 360 console. If you play Halo 4 longer than 35 hours online on Xbox Live, you will get 100 Microsoft Points. That number increases to 300 Microsoft Points if you play more than 70 hours online in Halo 4.

Finally, if you are really dedicated (and don't have much else to do) you can get 600 Microsoft Points if you play Halo 4 for 140 hours online. Yes, that's the equivalent of close to six days of continuous play. We hope you will take some bathroom breaks.

In addition to the bonuses for playing Halo 4, you can also get some extra Microsoft Points the easy way. Microsoft is offering 100 extra points if you buy 1,500 or more Microsoft Points worth of Halo content. It will give players 200 extra points if they purchase 3,000 or more Microsoft Points of Halo content.

The catch? This offer ends on November 30, so we suggest you start playing now.

Or, is a way of letting ppl try the Xbox live and experience the lag free online gaming. 25% of the ppl that join Xbox live might stick around. Uhm...?

interesting, so Microsoft is essentially paying you to play their flagship game, so that they can later claim it having an immense online userbase (and in turn, sell more even copies).
What is not so smart about this is that people trying to have the 140 hour "achievement" will burn out after it and leave the game altogether.

End of December would have been more realistic for me. End of November? Man, there are women in the world ya know and they need me. I have to save them from their panties.

haha no you don't...good try though.

Luckily my women at the moment are currently on their (synchronised) rags which is giving me bonus Halo 4 time!

140 hour of gameplay in less than 1 months time. You shouldn't be rewarded for that >.>

if people play, let them be rewarded.
some people just like to play games.

It would be quite hard, you would need to play at least 5 hours a day.
