Try 400 points if you are purchasing. You can sometimes find McDonalds Subway and other random retailers giving away points 100 at a time.
I wouldn't exactly call buying a sandwich or a value meal as "giving away" points. You have to purchase a product to actually get the "free points."

Someone on the xbox360achievements.com forums emailed Valve, and they said they were readying a patch, but it had to go through Microsoft's approval process first.
any one know if they're or when they're going to be fixing the ACH glitch for crash course

Valve Left 4 Dead 2 Gets "Realism" Mode For Hardcore Zombie Killers

For players who find "expert" difficulty too easy in Left 4 Dead, it appears that Valve is upping the challenge for the sequel with "Realism" mode, a game modifier that made an unplanned appearance last night.
The folks at 1UP spotted the Realism modifier nestled away in one of the game's options, then squeezed Valve for details. According to marketing VP Doug Lombardi, Realism is designed for the Left 4 Dead 2 player more skilled, more masochistic than Valve's own testers.
How it's different, exactly, Lombardi wouldn't elaborate. But one might assume that Realism makes the infected in L4D2 act more like their real-world counterparts, requiring headshots to properly dispatch of the game's zombie hordes. That's just a guess, though.
Valve's other Left 4 Dead 2 reveal from last night's event, the "Scavenge" gameplay mode, can be read in more detail. With the game due out November 17th, expect Realism and the rest of the game's well-kept secrets to be revealed soon.

I'm interested in this game, but not in paying full price for the sequel. My question, will you still be able to play the original online once the new version is out... and will there be anyone to play it with?
According to Valve, they will NOT stop supporting left 4 dead.
Left 4 Dead will have it's own community and Left 4 Dead 2 will have theirs.

Currently system link is the only way to unlock Jumpin' Jack Flash and Smash Hit.
Wrong. I have both and got them in online matches. It seems that they are glitched sometimes for some people .. and it seems totally random, but I got all of the ones I have by just playing online like I usually do.

I think you all are more or less wrong.. the achievements aren't showing up because probably you are doing quick match and joining an "in-progress" match. Achievements will not unlock for a person joining an "in-progress" match a glitch they patched due to the "dashboard glitch."
you are wrong my friend, I've started matches (being loby leader) and have played from beggining to end and still can't get them. But lets say your right, explain why my body count keeps resetting????

"We have upgraded our network infrastructure to better accommodate the huge response to L4D2. 360 players will now have lag-free servers. We've also added more dedicated servers.
We will continue to monitor the situation and add resources as needed.
Thank you for your patience. Now quit reading this, get out there and kill some zombies!"
