Xbox 360 achievements will be rewarded?

Xbox 360 achievements will be rewarded? The Xbox 360 achievement points in gameplay is a prime example of gaming innovation from Microsoft. So far, the system has led to friendly competition among gamers, a cash-for-points business and of course, a leaderboard race. However, after spending hours playing games and accomplishing tasks for points, gamers have only had bragging rights.
That might change according to Xbox 360 fan site Unscripted 360, which claims to have a document that shows information of an upcoming "achievements-for-rewards program". According to the site, Microsoft has teamed up with sponsors to give away a number of prizes for in-game goals.

According to the blog, the program will be free and will launch some time next month. The owner of the blog, who goes by the name DeaconBlade 360, is an "Xbox Ambassador" and was awarded the Microsoft MVP Award for 2007 in the Xbox category. Microsoft didn't give any specific details about the program, but did hint that it might be real.

"We have nothing to say about these rumors or speculation," a Microsoft representative told GameSpot. "However, what we can tell you is that Xbox is always exploring ideas for how we can reward our loyal customers. As soon as we have anything new to share, we will definitely let you know."

The articlke mentions "sponsors". So prizes will more than likely not be Microsoft stuff, but from companies Microsoft is friendly with.

I think the rewards will probably be in the form of DLC in certain games when certain achievements are unlocked.
