Nice. Been waiting to try that out. First two were pretty fun.

And here I am, still looking at the second still in its virtual wrap waiting to be played.
 

sorry everyone, i just started paying attention to these quests and rewards, so obviously microsoft had to nuke them.

Well at least the daily achievement is still 50 points. Though it will probably be 5 points soon if this is their new plan.

Looks like the Bing Hot Deal $5 and $10 Microsoft Store cards sold out.  That was quick especially considering the similar Xbox Gift Card lasted the whole time and this had over a week left before it expired. 

 

I wanted to get the Mega Man Zero/ZX collection to support the series but I guess I'll have to hold off until the next sale.

Just hit 8000 and noticed that also, hopefully will come back. End 3/13

At least you guys get daily achievements Quests, we don't have that over here..nor those 500 Point Punchcards everybody is talking about.

I really don't understand this business model.  Maybe 30k coins isn't much, but if I were giving away games free, I don't think I would also give people free currency too (especially ongoing).  To clarify, i'm not saying EA is so wonderful.  Just don't understand them.

At least none of these Rewards quests will distract me from playing Ryse. Hah hah hah hah... Seriously I'm playing Ryse right now and questioning my life choices all because I'm trying to clear games from my HDD. My favorite thing is one of the achievements straight up gives away the ending and I kinda respect that.

Everybody: Microsoft will lose hundreds of dollars on each Xbox Series X and make it back with services.

 

Microsoft: Cuts monthly Game Pass quest reward from $1 to 10 cents.

Ha. I actually just finished the story a couple days ago. Currently doing some multiplayer stuff. Shoot me a message if you would be up for trying to get the co-op survival achievements. gt is twisted poke.

I highly doubt Death Stranding ever gets ported to Xbox because the IP is owned by Sony.


MLB The Show 21 says hello (from the future)!

Granted, that was due to MLB but just mentioning it to show that anything is possible.

So, now you get more points from one day of Bing Searches than a whole month of Game Pass quests... Okay.

I think they should keep the daily stuff that is easy and just bring in an achievement for points system

 

none of this robbing 3 banks and stealing 30 cars nonsense

 

a certain amount for the rookie and increase to the completionist

 

then we can play what we want they still get lots of activity and nothing is a pain

 

even with nerfed points most of us would still get achievements in games we already like to play that are on gamepass

I just have no desire to download over 500gb of games, when Comcast is constantly punishing me with overage charges.

 You acknowledged why it's a different situation, but still used an exception to the rule as to why it might happen.   LOL  

 

If Death Stranding was only a multiplayer online game then I could see Sony not caring, but they are going to make certain their bread and butter, big budget. story driven, cinematic, single player action adventure game exclusives that they fund will not be ported onto their competitor Xbox.  Anything else they may consider such as Dreams.  I could see that eventually get a Xbox port.

I imagine it's like getting freebies at a casino. The amount they'll get from in game currency from a small percentage of people will greatly outweigh what they're giving away to entice people to play. I only played the first game but it looks like coins aren't the paid currency in this version. Like they're giving away xp boosts and simple cosmetics.

I'm against that, because there are plenty of games I already completed and was still able to participate with these quests that I wasn't able to with the MS Rewards app on the Xbox One dashboard. They already have that system over there they can keep it. That said the numbers are so low now I'm not going to really bother. I've got to lvl 20 in Black Desert and I couldn't tell you one thing about what a "gifted sell sword" is, but I can guarantee that 2000 of them isn't worth any amount of time for 20 points. I did see on Twitter they responded to one of the higher Gamerscore players in the world.

The -900 point Quest Completionist news is garbage, but I guess some good luck comes in threes. Another fella only a 20-minute drive from me, sold me his PS4 Pro with 2 dualshocks, cheap Turtle Beach, and 7 games (CoD Infinite Warfare, FIFA 18, GTA V, Injustice 2: Legendary, Plants vs. Zombies GW2, Steep, Tekken 7 w/ unclaimed DLC). He wanted 200 bucks. In my mind, I refused to pay more than my precious X1X from a few days ago. 😂 I negotiated my way to $180. I immediately went on eBay and I'm looking at this set to cover my shame.Halo.png

I just saw the new Quests and I agree with all of you, not worth it anymore. They should just go back to the way it was before if this is how it's going to be.

Ever since trying to deal with their customer service over getting some reward credit refunded a few months ago I’m scared to buy anything from them.

No it's all games and software updates. If I was downloading 500gb of porn a month, I'd seriously have to reevaluate my entire life.

Same here.  They screwed me over with $25 credit I had on my account and I'm never going to buy stuff directly through Dell again.

FWIW: I found last month in doing Game Pass Games on the Go quest (where you download 5 GP games from the app) I could choose games I already had installed and it would put those games in the queue, and really quick just confirm they downloaded correctly, and it would count as a download. Now is that tip worth 10 points? Probably not.

Yeah, it gets annoying hearing about all these ways to get points, but then you find out you can't because it looks like it is America only.
