Microsoft Launching Play to Earn Program in April

Posted on March 28, 2013 AT 10:26am

Microsoft will be launching a new Play to Earn program, MyPunchcard, exclusive to Xbox Live rewards members, the company announced today.

By playing 20 hours of “any combination” of arcade games, players will receive a free avatar item. By purchasing any four arcade games for 400 Microsoft Points or more, they’ll receive one month of Xbox Live Gold free. And by spending 3200 Points on arcade games, they’ll receive 800 in return.

Blacking out all three Arcade Punchcards by doing the aforementioned activities lands you a guaranteed spot in upcoming VIP exclusives.

Microsoft’s Major Nelson lists Minecraft, Terraria, Trials Evolution, Counterstrike: GO, Castle Crashers, The Walking Dead, and Limbo as titles he recommends. He also lists games launching in on XBLA in April: BattleBlock Theater (by the Castle Crashers developers), Double Dragon II, Motocross Madness, Sacred Citadel, God Mode, and Monaco.

In order to take advantage of this program, players need to register to become Xbox Live rewards members.
