Microsoft Triple Play Promotion Offers 300 Microsoft Points For Playing Games

Posted on April 2, 2012 AT 10:25am

THE BUZZ: Spend some time with your Xbox 360 this month and get yourself 300 Microsoft Points thanks to Microsoft’s new Triple Play promotion.

All you have to do is take part in one activity from each of the categories below to qualify for your points. The promotion is part of the Xbox Live Rewards program.


  • Play a Kinect game for two hours
  • Play online via Xbox Live for 10 hours
  • Spend 800 Points or more on game-related items (Games on Demand, DLC, XBLA, etc.)


  • Spend 400 Points or more on any film or TV content
  • Use one of the following apps for 10 hours: BBC iPlayer, blinkbox, Crackle, Last.FM, LOVEFiLM, MUZU, Netflix, Sky, VEVO or Zune


  • Use Facebook on Xbox Live for one hour
  • Use YouTube on Xbox Live for one hour
  • Use Video Kinect on Xbox Live for one hour

EGM’s TAKE: If you’re looking to get your points quickly then simply slap on a Kinect game for a couple of hours, watch 10 hours of TV and leave Facebook running for an hour. What could be easier? We suggest that everyone who uses the rewards scheme ensures that they complete three of these goals before the end of April to secure their points.

Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
