Xbox Live Arcade Games to get 200 more achievement points each


Starting in April, Xbox Live Arcade games can award up to 400 Gamerscore points to folks who unlock all of a game's nooks and crannies, Xbox Live's Larry Hryb said today.

The bump from a maximum 200 Gamerscore points to 400 points may not mean much to you, but there are scores of folks who rabidly track and rank up their Gamerscore. The jump to 400 points for Xbox Live Arcade games becomes mandatory in June.

Hryb tells Vox Games that this change will only impact arcade titles, so no jump in retail game points just yet.
