    i think this is my 1st post in this section, so hi all.

    Excuse the nieve question however, up until about a month ago, i'd only ever played pc games online. however i impulsed brought a 360, and i must say the Live service and dashboard is damn polished.

    anywho my question, do you have to buy the marketplace points or is it possible to win / gain some by completing games or achieving a certain gamerscore?

    You have to buy them I think, unless you buy a 12month gold card from gamestation and then you get 1000 points free :)

    If you select the Help option when buying points, it says to look out for promotions. I always wondered what these promotions were, as this has put me off buying many points in case this is a fools way of getting them.

    Yeah Microsoft points are the currency for the Xbox 360 - for buying themes, pictures, extra levels, add-ons, movies, arcade games etc on your console.

    Achievment points are what you earn by completing levels, certain tasks in games.
