Microsoft has begun to offer rebates on XBox Live purchases to players with high gamerscores.
Microsoft announced today their plans to offer rebates and discounts to XBox players based upon gamerscore. For a gamerscore of over 25,000 you get a 2% rebate on XBox Live purchases. Gold members with a score of more than 10,000 will get a 1% rebate. Gamers that have a score of over 3,000 will get a birthday gift (probably some small, relatively cheap avatar content or similar). This special will be running through June of 2013.
"Only a two percent discount? How cheap," one random gamer that had been getting no discount for his score up until now complained. "What a joke of an offer, I'll just stick with my PS3 and its free network," a PS3 player with no intention of switching to XBox anyway laughed. "How about a unique profile theme instead of a nothing rebate?" One gamer that... wait, that's actually a pretty good idea.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
