Wait, seriously? Yes, seriously. Microsoft's Game Room will have 56 Achievements attached to it when it finally launches next week. Hoping to entice players into its virtual arcade like Gary Glitter with a dirty van full of candy, Microsoft is offering 1,000 Gamerpoints, some of which can be earned simply by being there.
Game Room is out on March 24 and is definitely one for the Achievement whores to look out for. You get an Achievement for beating your own high score at a game. That's the kind of thing we're looking at here. Check out the full list to see what other easy points you can get.
