    This achievement requires paid content.

    Medals can only be earned in ranked play, and in games that you either own, are purchasing sessions with using the 40 MS point option, or on games that your console is licensed to (i.e. Someone else bought that game on your console). Medals can NOT be earned in demo play, classic play, or if you are using tokens to play a friend's machine.

    There are three medal varieties:
    Point Buster : These medals are awarded when you reach certain score targets.
    Survivalist : These medals are awarded for surviving a set amount of time in a single play.
    Time Spender : These medals are awarded for cumulative game play.

    Every game has a Time Spender medal. Note that Time Spender medals can be earned in ranked or classic play, and are cumulative between game sessions. Most games also have a Point Buster and Survivalist medal. Medals "upgrade" as you progress. What this means is that if you have a Bronze medal and suddenly earn a Silver medal, you only have a Silver Medal. This will only count as 1 medal. Bronze, silver, and gold medals all count.

    A chart of which games have which medals available, and the goals that must be met to get those medals is posted here:

    This will require you to purchase and play at least 8 different games in the Game Room.

    Each game has 3 different medals to win (Point Buster, Survivalist, Time Spender). Each medal type has a Bronze, Silver, and Gold medal. Earn at least the Bronze medal for each medal type on 8 games and this is yours.

    Note: This is possible to obtain across any amount of games with any combination of medal types.
