Microsoft's announced that watching three out of four scheduled election debates through Xbox Live will net Xbox Live Rewards members a free set of piss-yellow golden avatar armor from Halo 4. Through Xbox Live you'll also be able to participate in polls and present your own poll questions using the Twitter hashtag #xboxpoll.

The four debates are at 9pm eastern/ 6 pacific on the following days:

  • October 3, 2012: Presidential Debate on Foreign Policy
  • October 11, 2012: Vice-Presidential Debate
  • October 16, 2012: Presidential Debate on Domestic Policy
  • October 22, 2012: Presidential Debate

And remember, you only have to tune in to three of them through Xbox Live. Because we're all about doing the bare minimum. Do you think this is a clever ploy to get more gamers engaged in politics? Either way, we shudder at the thought of engaging in intellectual debates with someone who's screaming that he's just fucked our moms.
