I actually like the gamerscores for 360 games being that it actually kinds of eggs you on to finish a game or do certain task like in Dead Rising which was awesome but those are some real ****ty prizes.

It's nice that Microsoft is doing this, to encoruage us to play and earn more points as well get more people to use their service. If it's successful, they'll add more stuff or change every month or something. That'd be awesome.

I am curious does each game for the X360 have it's own maximum achievement points for it? Do they vary from game to game?

a full game has a limitation of 1000 points. arcade games and the burger king games had 300 points. Some games don't use the full 1000 points but that is usually attributed to them saving points for future expansions or downloadable content.

The only complaint by some people is that a few games let you earn points easily. For example, King Kong lets you get the full 1000 points by simply passing the game on any difficulty. Some games like GRAW will register achievements even if you are using cheats. You can easily get 10,000 points in like a week because there are more than enough games that have easy achievements.

Hmm thanks for the reply. Essentially you need to buy 1-3games for ~1k points?

I didn't mean total points I meant possible points for the avg gamer. I would htink most around here are considered "hardcore gamers" and if they are only getting 1 or 2 points out of 1k on gears of war, I am assuming there are some other games where acquiring the points is equally as difficult.

oh yeah on average that's about what you get. what I was talking about earlier is that there are games out there that you can get 1k points in 1 sitting or in around 1-2 days. A lot of sports games especially. I played a large amount of games but never for points and I got around 5k. If you focus on points, you can get em quick.
