You get achievment points by completeing things in games.  They can be from getting a certain amount of kills online, completeing a level,  and then some very different ones like completeing a level while only being shot 30 times, using only bolt action guns through a level (cod3).  Your gamerscore is the amount of achievment points you earn.  They really don't do much but show how dedicated you are.  In short XBL=best online game experience EVER.

I would rather pay 50 bucks a year than nothing to only get crappy service.  Everyone complains about the PSNetwork this is from 1up:

Your reward for all that dicking around is a virtual desert. The free for all, do it yourself nature of this thing isn't getting much developer support, and we're not too crazy about it, either. No unified buddy lists? No mid-game messaging? Hell, no pretty much anything we've been taking for granted after more than a year of Xbox Live. Even a little thing like collecting gamer points has practically become some kind of bizarre meta-MMO in its own right. At this point you can probably pay Koreans to farm NBA Live for you. It's a lot to say goodbye to all at once.

true that..  far from crap as originally put.  For cheaper than a McDonald's happy meal every month you get the best online gaming service out there....by far.

Best of all you can see how far friends are in the game by how many points they have.  And as well if your stuck on a spot you can ask a friend that has beaten it how to do it...very clever system.  I could spell everything out but its easier if you really want to know to look at this site.  Theres a bit more to it.

I'm pretty sure MS has some kind of hold on the gamerscore thing....Sony probably couldn't do it if they wanted to.
