Gamerscore... defined...

I guess I realized after my last post that not everyone would be familiar with the term "gamerscore." Thankfully, Wikipedia came to the rescue.

"The Gamerscore(G) is a measure that corresponds to the number of Achievement points accumulated by an Xbox Live user. These Achievement points are awarded for the completion of game-specific challenges, such as beating a level or amassing a specified number of wins against other players in Xbox Live matches. Initially, retail Xbox 360 games offered up to 1,000G spread over a variable number of Achievements, while each Xbox Live Arcade title contained 12 achievements totaling 200G. These possible totals per game have been raised to 1250G and 250G, respectively; see below. Achievements became a potent system seller for the console."

I just thought since I'm going to be an XBoxer and I'm already thinking about my Gamerscore... I realize that I'm a little weird... so I thought I would define the term. (Thanks CG for the thought!!)
