This guy is about to pass one million Xbox achievement points

Persistence pays off.

UPDATE: 11:39 PST

And he's done it! Congratulations, Ray!

Cox hit exactly exactly 1,000,000 GamerScore, with the "I like a Challenge" Achievement in Titanfall.

While he said at the end of the Twitch stream that he wasn't planning on shooting for a 2 million points, he's also not necessarily giving up on earning more points...though it's unlikely he'll pursue them with the same zeal that he chased down the first million.

The original story appears below.

Over the last eight years, Xbox owner Ray Cox IV (Stallion83) has been plugging away at raising his GamerScore to the 1,000,000 mark. And he's about to do that. You can watch him Livestream the journey live in the Twitch video.

What game will he use to push past the final hurdle? Titanfall.

Cox is the current world record holder for highest legitimate GamerScore, but hitting the million mark first just further cements his complete dominance of the achievement point race. How do you stack up? Personally, I've been at about 30k for the past year.

Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on moon,
Albert Einstein discovered the connection between mass and energy,

Marie Curie discovered two radioactive elements, radium and polonium, 

Ray Cox IV, also known as Stallion83, got 1,000,000 GamerScore on Xbox.

What an honor, what an excelent life fulfilling achievement he has accomplished.

MS should give this man a job for at least 8 years. After all, he paid the CEOs Lamborghini, thats what a million points give.

Congrats on wasting 8 years of your life.

Microsoft should award this gamer with something. That much dedication for such a pointless thing deserves a reward. This guy probably wasted 8 years of his life for this.

MS should offer a cash reward for hitting a certain Gamerscore.  That would be one way to ensure people would buy their products.

.. Why would anyone be proud of this? I really don't get it. It is just like checking your playtime as a veteran WoW player. You just don't do it.

I know a guy like this on XBL. He played every game, even kid games, to up is Gamerscore. He told me he'd rent kids games from Gamefly just so he could 1000G them over a weekend.

I'm sure my score would be 2 million if I added up PS trophies, Games for Windows score and Steam achievements.  At least that's what I will tell myself as I lay sobbing in bed with a huge gamer inferority complex.

After 8 years I only made it to 40,000 and I thought that was impressive. Looks like I've got my work cut out for me.

My first thought when i read this was "pathologic compulsion, get help".

But then i couldn't help but imagining what this fellow could achieve, if he can carry that sort of energy, passion and determination over into other walks of life.

I think we all can look up to people who dig in and get stuff done by sheer perseverance, so let's go easy with the prejudice on this guy. ;)

"He" or "they". U can simply have an account iffline and online with diff versions games being played etc.

Still sounds boring trying to do that with friends tho.

Too bad t(he)y didnt hit it earlier and they make some limited console =\

I'm a part-time trophy hunter on PlayStation systems and understand the leveling system there, but don't know much about the Xbox GamerScore thingamajig. So it took pretty much the entire gen for him to do, so I guess that's a heck of a lot of gameplay :)

Um, congratulations.....????  

I think as a prize, someone should send him some gift cards that get him out of the house.

Well, it helps when you have endless backup 360's and no life.


Kind of like in Aqua Teen Hunger Force when they kept cloning tv's to smash...

1000 Gamerscore per game... 1 million Gamerscore... So you're telling me this game completed all the achievements for at least 1000 games?! Blimey..

@monks-1138 look look you just wasted time on writing this about wasting your life ! me too !

@spartanx169x  Yes, an incredibly timely reference like this irrefutably establishes you as superior to this fellow in every way. Why don't you throw in an Austin Powers "Yeah, baby!" to really make your parents proud?

@nurnberg  Must be even more fun to make unfounded comments on someone's hard work rather than actually, you know, accomplishing anything yourself. But hey, whatever gets you through one more day of your miserable life.

@hadlee73 I've been playing for about 10 to 15 hrs a week for 6 years and I'm not even a 1/10  of that . To achieve what he has done , he has not had a job or gotten laid for that time, I  will bet on that

@BelaidKL  That's assuming he didn't download DLC that came with more achievements like Halo or played any Xbox Live Arcade games. Regardless, it would still require a lot of games to play/own to get there.

@beefsquatch take your own advice beef.  Big tough guy cruising this thread responding to OPs with snarky remarks.  Good for you.

@spartanx169x @hadlee73  lol, when he does get laid he'll probably wonder why no achievement pops :)
