Xbox Live’s Refer-A-Friend program is on

Millions of users are already connected to Microsoft’s popular online service, but the company won’t, but more importantly, can’t settle for this unless they want to get beat by Sony, which is why the “Refer-A-Friend” incentive is now in motion. What this basically means is that if you, as a gold member, get a silver member to go gold, you get goodies. And so does your friend. Microsoft Points, Arcade games, etc.

Here’s how it all works, according to the official rules:

  • Get your free member friend to go Gold and you’ll get 400 Microsoft Points and your friend will get 400 Microsoft Points. Tokens to download Points will expire on December 31, 2011. Once downloaded, promotional Points will expire on June 30, 2012;
  • Get your free member friend to go Gold and you’ll get multiplayer arcade game and your friend will get multiplayer arcade game of Sponsor’s choosing;
  • Get your free member friend to go Gold and you’ll get 600 Microsoft Points and your friend will get 600 Microsoft Points. Tokens to download Points will expire on December 31, 2011. Once downloaded, promotional Points will expire on June 30, 2012; or
  • Get your free member friend to try Gold with a promotional token good for 1 month of Gold! BONUS: If your friend redeems the token within 30 days, you will get 200 Microsoft Points. Tokens to download Points will expire on December 31, 2011. Once downloaded, promotional Points will expire on June 30, 2012.

Unfortunately, it’s availability is strictly limited to the US, which means the international bunch of us are left out. But we hear patience is a virtue, whatever that means…
