    I've known about this for a while as I'm sure most Xbox players have. It's a cool program but it forces you to decide if you really want those scanty rewards points and in return you'll have to complete a shitty game like Aftercharge or let it impact your completion percentage.
    I like the idea overall, but there is a really irritating problem with it:
    Previously unlocked achievements don't retroactively count. And I cannot see the reason why they shouldn't. In fact, game Pass as a program seems less interested in rewarding loyal subscribers and early adopters and more so with acquiring as many new randoms as possible.
    Always number 2.

    From what I can see with the app on the Xbox One there's nothing like that being offered, the app barely works at all and on the rare times it does it tends to not even register any points that are earned.
    Ok, I was thinking I was crazy because I don't see anything like this in the Rewards App. I did spymaster and then there is a Movie one and I think a World of Tanks one but nothing like the article mentioned.

    It's called business. The quests are intended to get new players into the games. That is it.

    If you've already played a certain game, great. But clearly the quest is not aimed at you. It's pretty much the same as every other "new customer" incentive for the last 200 years. Not everything is going to be tailor-made for you. (Or me, or anyone else for that matter.)
