Ready for the Old Spice Challenge?
What's the challenge, listening to their music? - Thankfully this post has nothing to do with the Spice Girls but before I get going, take a look at Posh on the far left here. That boob job borders on the hysterical. I guess Becks likes to play with soccer balls in the bedroom as well as on the pitch. Thank you! I'll be here all week! Try the veal, its great.
The Old Spice Challenge I'm referring to is the Xbox 360 Achievement Point mongering one. You may remember the Microsoft sponsored challenge about a year ago. Rewards like t-shirts, free XBLA downloads, and gamer pics were given out if you earned a certain amount of Achievement Points in a certain amount of time. If you recall from my posts about it last year, the challenge fueled my already obsessive drive to earn points, leaving me a sleepless wreck and getting me as close as I'll ever get to being Tyrone Biggums. Good news, the Old Spice Challenge has returned, but in a different form.
Microsoft is sitting this one out (Old Spice is teaming up with 360voice.com, which I absolutely love and highly recommend to any 360 owner) but prizes are still around and better yet, the competition is all user defined. Its all in gamers hands. There are 20 different prize packages in different tiers, based on the length of the competition and number of teams involved. Below is a list of the rewards.
Tier 1 · Requirements: 7 day challenge, 5 gamers minimum · $20 Amazon gift card · 1,600 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · $20 Best Buy gift card
Tier 2 · Requirements: 14 day challenge, 10 gamers minimum · $50 Best Buy gift card · 4,000 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · Xbox Live Gold Membership (1 year)
Tier 3 · Requirements: 30 day challenge, 15 gamers minimum · $100 Best Buy gift card · 8,000 Xbox Live Microsoft Points · 6 month GameFly subscription
Tier 4 · Requirements: 30 day challenge, 20 gamers minimum · Year long GameFly subscription · Xbox 360 HD DVD Player
If you're a big point hog head to www.oldspiceexperiencechallenge.com to create a challenge or join one. This is a good opportunity to prove how much of a stud you are to your friends and rub their faces in it. I'd be willing to take on any readers in a challenge but lets be honest, I'd destroy you all and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings (read: I don't want to turn into Tyrone Biggums again, my wife just might divorce me this time).
