Cool. Just had a look through, with the MyAchievements rewards, they've added another category. I will start from the bottom:

Contender: 3000 - 9999 GS
Every $10 spent, you get 50 Credits

Champion: 10000 - 24999
Every $10 spent, you get 100 Credits

Legend: 25000 - 74999
Every $10 spent, you get 200 Credits

Master: 75000+
Every $10 spent, you get 300 Credits


I better work on getting over 75k GS >.<

Might be thick here but...how do you get to anything?
How do you look at the punch cards? Or take a survey? Or.....*anything*. Seems the site is all information and no interactivity.

I like how I can get 1000 Credits for playing a brand new game. I got Killer Is Dead on Thursday, so I will definitely be able to get those points easily. You have to play 10 hours of the new game.

I really like this part of the rewards actually. GTA V comes out in 17 days, so I will easily get 10 hours in that as well.


So each month, I will probably get 1250 points. This is not including any games or DLC I buy and get points back on.

it's only for new disc games, tho

I don't buy games on disc anymore, and I always wait for the games price to lower

Those look fantastic. After so many anti-consumer moves lately, this is really promising.

Digital is a lot more expensive in the UK than physical copies. I tend to buy one brand new game on release day a month, if there are no games I am interested in on that month, I will usually buy a game that has already been released within the year that I missed out on.

If there are multiple games being released within that month and I really want them all, I usually only pick one. I like playing games, I have the money.

just know if you don't accrue the 10 hours played within 30 days of the release of the game you won't get the points.

Well if I get the game on release day, I could get 10 hours within 2 or 3 days...

I've already put 4 hours into Killer Is Dead, on weekdays I only play games after 6:30pm.
