Microsoft Announces Triple Play Promotion

By Michelle Balsan , 4 years ago
Microsoft has revealed that they will be running a promotion throughout the month of April that could see you walking away 300 MSP richer. The promotion, titled "Triple Play", wants gamers to take advantage of the multitude of things the Xbox can do. We all know and love it for the games, but they've been hard at work rounding out the entertainment and social features on the console. What better way to make us take advantage of these things than to offer something for free, right?

How do you get in on this promotion? Microsoft has set certain gaming, entertainment, and social milestones that you have to reach before the month is out. Satisfying at least one requirement from each of the three categories nets you the points.

For the gaming aspect, you have to do one of the following:
Play any Kinect game for 2 hours or more during the month of April. Game titles are seen here.

She's also seen pretty much none of the movies you have, but she's working on that.
