Microsoft had teased it awhile ago, but today they officially announced rewards for players with high Gamerscores. The more cynical among us will scoff that the reward results in Microsoft getting more money, but I side with Jordan on the matter. I've already surpassed the level needed for the highest discount, and I was going to continue to buy things on Xbox Live anyway, so now I get 2% back without having to do anything I wasn't already doing.

Otherwise, Justin Amirkhani shared an interesting tale about a chance encounter, Audun Sorlie let us preview some of the music from the upcoming Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, and a ton of news came out on this fine Friday.
