Xbox LIVE Arcade – Play to Earn Campaign

This April, we’ve launched an exclusive feature for Xbox LIVE Rewards members, offering incentives to gamers for doing what they do best: playing games. Starting this week and lasting the entire month, all the action is in arcade games with our exclusive Play To Earn offers. Your passion for playing arcade games can pay off in a big way.

There are three ways to earn, but only the most devoted arcade fans have what it takes to black out all three arcade ‘Punchcards’. Those who do will be guaranteed a spot in upcoming VIP exclusives. By simply playing your favourite arcade games and adding to your game collection, you can earn awesome rewards. Have you got what it takes? Here are the three ways you can earn rewards all month long.


  • Punchcard One: Play 20 hours of any combination of arcade games and you will receive a free avatar item
  • Punchcard Two: Purchase any four arcade games for 400 Microsoft Points or more from Xbox LIVE and you’ll receive a one month Xbox LIVE Gold membership
  • Punchcard Three: Spend 3200 Microsoft Points on arcade games and you’ll receive 800 Microsoft Points in return


It’s easy and fun, you can earn for playing and or buying ANY arcade game from Xbox LIVE on Xbox 360. So, play the games you already know and love like Minecraft, Terraria, LIMBO, Trials Evolution and more and discover new games to try and buy from Xbox LIVE.  The following games will be launching on Xbox LIVE Arcade throughout April and will be part of Play To Earn.


  • BattleBlock Theatre
  • Double Dragon II
  • Motocross Madness
  • Sacred Citadel
  • God Mode
  • Monaco

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
