IGN News - Microsoft Will Pay You to Play Halo 4

Uploaded by IGNentertainment on 07.11.2012

Microsoft has revealed that during the month of November, players can earn free Microsoft
Points for playing Halo 4 multiplayer. Called the Halo 4 Combat Tour Offer, Microsoft will
offer 10,000,000 Points in total throughout the month, awarded to players based on how
much time they’ve spent playing the game. Players who spend 35 or more hours playing
Halo 4 multiplayer will get 100 Points ($1.25), players who spend 70 hours will get 300 Points
($3.75) and players who spend 140 hours will get 600 Points ($7.50). Eligibility began
yesterday, on Halo 4’s release date, and runs through November 30th.
For some perspective, though, California's minimum wage is $8 an hour. Microsoft will
pay you $7.50 for 140 hours of Halo multiplayer. Also, players who spend Microsoft Points on
Halo-related add-ons, avatar items, themes, Games on Demand, or videos during November
will receive a rebate, with players who spend 1500 Points getting back 100, and players
who spend 3000 or more Points getting back 200. Any purchase between November 1st and
November 30th is eligible, and a full list of qualifying items is available on the official
Xbox site. The Halo 4 Combat Tour Offer comes just weeks
after Microsoft announced the MyAchievements program, which offers rewards to players based
on their achievements, including 1 and 2% rebates on Xbox Live Marketplace purchases.
