Microsoft to hand out rewards for Xbox Live Achievements starting this fall

A tweet from Xbox LIVE Rewards suggests that soon, 360 users may earn rewards for earning Achievements in games. Here’s the tweet: “We’ve hit 50,000 followers, which means it’s time for an announcement! Coming Fall: a new way to earn Rewards based on your Achievements.” That’s pretty much it, but since Xbox LIVE Rewards hands out free Microsoft Points when users complete objectives and other XBL interactions, it’s assumed players will earn points in some capacity for this.
