I have about 1200 points, but still think the site sucks thick green pond scum.

is this the one from the 300 movie previews? if so, it's funny, cuz everyone was talking, and all of a sudden you see these square heads in a box thingy, and the entire theater became really quite.... weird....

The new box signals the end of civilization as we know it........at least thats how it would appear from this site. The crusher game is not too bad--but not very challenging.

Yeah, saw 300 last night and that ad played. Everybody was all about quiet murmuring afterward. I leaned over to the wife and said: "It's a Scion site". She just laughed.

I wonder if anybody checked it out after the movie...

Still, very odd commercial. Even I wouldn't have gone for it.

Some quotes picked up from elsewhere. :lol:

Hey guys, over at the Scion website, they're actually marketing the new xB as an urban utility vehicle:

"Upsize. That's what the all-new 2008 xB urban utility vehicle did. Bumped up all around from the wheelbase to the length to the width, the xB maginifies its appeal with a larger chassis to fit even more driving adventure. Characteristically distinctive, the xB asserts design elements that get noticed -- elongated wraparound headlamps, rectangular grille, pronounced fenders, tinted windows -- and features a lounge-like interior for total ride relaxation. Now equipped with a 2.4L dual overhead-cam four-cylinder engine for 158 horsepower, the 2008 xB stretches out on Super White, Classic Silver Metallic, Black Sand Pearl, Nautical Blue Metallic, Blackberry Crush Metallic and Hypnotic Teal Mica."http://www.scion.com/nextgen/
Upsize? NooooOOOoooo!!!! X@P

a new 42" tv would be nice... i got over 540 points already in about 15-20 minutes... i could probably hit 600,000 easy... but do really want to go down to that level?

okay so i been playing around on this site got about 4,500 points and decided to check out the stuff you can purchase with your points... i snagged 1 xb entree for the 08 xb two cd visors a rubics cube and a keychain... says 6-8 weeks to recieve just curious if anyone has recieved anything as of yet? i know the release was before the 300 movie premiere cause ive seen that add on alot of movie previews over the past month.

so main question is has anyone recieved any rewards yet?

p.s. and for those that think the site is annoying then don't go to it.. i think its a interesting way to promote scions and a fun and interactive way to learn about scion not just the automotive side but the musical side as well. i frequent scion.com so maybe i am just different who knows.

I don't think they're letting people get the high end items. It looks like when you get close to getting something high in points, they make it unavailable. :flame:

I could be wrong...anyone get a high end item? Like the camera and so on?

GOOD WAY OF RACKING UP POINTS:

Watching a movie gives you 50 points. So go to "SCREEN CITY," watch all the movies (while you do real-life stuff in the background), and then go "explore" another city, which resets the point-earning capability. It only lets you do the 50 once per exploration, but you can go in and out as many times as you want.

Which is how I got 2000 points in one night. @_@ :lalala: OH CRAP I'M SUCH A NERD...but i got the t-shirt :D :D :D And I only had to stay up to 2:00 a.m. to do it ^____^ :love:

hotweelz4me

How do you guys know which ones are still available? o_0 I know there's only a limited quantity of each one, but I don't want to earn 4.5 billion points only to "spend" them on a camera...and get nothing. @___@

I got my Rubik's Cube (pretty cheap) and the CD Visor (Not Bad) in the mail last week, still waiting for the Keyring, Boxers, T Shirt and MP3 player.

Yeah I was that bored :)

Car Crusher is the way to get points fast, just play it till your eyes go numb :eyebrow:

Did you start to see the little shapes whenever you closed your eyes? :) I started to get that somewhere between the mp3 player and shirt #4......

How long did they take to show up?

i already got over 400K points.... i ordered 6 digital cameras (already got 4 of them) and a navigation system...

there was a trick to do it inside of screen city but they took it away! when you clicked on the eyeballs, they would "close" but they really wouldn't be closed. you had to click the top of the eyeball to open it back up and it gave you 5 points each click... but they just completely deleted the eyeballs off of it!

w00t! My first post!

I'm relieved to see that you received multiples of a single prize as I have won 4 mp3 players and thus far only received one.

I also snagged 1 camera, 1 Rubics cube, 1 T-shirt, 1 AVIC-S1 and the X-box surround system because it was the only big ticket item left. :eyebrow:

Just over a month to go and I am still sitting on 400,000+ points. Maybe I will just order another 20 mp3 players. :rofl:

btw... I don't drive a Scion but I bought my sister an Xa to replace her 180,000 mile Mercury Villager. I love that lil car and wouldn't mind an Xb for myself someday. A square for a reason car to go with my round for a reason Volkswagens. :)

I play crusher while I when ever I am watching tv. I can get about 4000 points an hour playing that game.

1) Make sure your cache limit on Firefox is set to 250mb other wise the game slows down dramatically as you get over 500 points.

2) Stay logged out so that all of your points count. The game glitches if you are logged in and doesn't tally all of your points.

3) Log in before you close the window and your points get added to your total.

They ran out once before and added more cameras and avic-s1's . So maybe they will do it again?

btw... My vacation house is out by ceaser's head. Good to see someone else from Greenville rockin' it here. :relief:

THIS IS FRICKIN' SWEET :D Just got my mp3 player (about two weeks), as did my brother.......haven't seen the shirts yet! Or the keychain I got just to use up some points. :shock:

Man, I would have loved one of those cameras...still, I can't really complain about a website that's shipping me free electronics for not shipping me enough free electronics. :lalala:

The mp3 player is amazing....I remember reading that it was 1" cube, but that didn't really sink in until I had the tiny little thing cupped in my hands. :eyes: It's so small! It makes my iPod seem like a conversion van by comparison. :) I've played around with it a bit, too, and it seems pretty awesome.

Here's hoping they'll add some more cameras.... :pray: [/i]

I played around with it last month and got around 8000 points in a night... Movies, games, screwing around. I had nothing better to do. :D

Last week I finally ordered my stuff - 2 tshirts, an entry for the xB, and a keychain. Got the first shipment today; the keychains are pretty neat lookin'. Way too big to fit comfortably in my pocket as part of my keys, so it's going in my xB.

UPS required a signature to claim the package containing the MP3 player. Only problem is that Im never home when UPS happens to come around. I left a note telling them to take it to the apartment office and the woman would sign for it. UPS man wrote on my note, "I can not do that with this package!"

So now they are returning it to sender. What a bunch of crap. Maybe, Ill see it one day.

I got my mp3 player on time, but it was faulty. Battery is shot.

It's still a pretty neat little thing though when I got it to work for a few minutes. It's not like I needed another mp3 player, so I'm not angry at want2bsquare or anything. It happens.

The box it came in was COOL!

I put my order in for an mp3 player in like april, which i spent like two days playing stupid car crusher and i have now given up on it ever coming.

08-11-2007, 03:09 AM
Hey now, don't blame this on Scion. It's some marketing dept that Scion hired out to take care of this; the only thing Scion has to do with it is the theme.


But yeah, my mp3 was a peice of crap. The first time I put music on it, I only put like 10 songs on it. I plugged it back in the next day, dragged more music onto it, but the only stuff I could get was the original 10. Plus the next button jammed and it would constantly skip the songs... And the battery was crap; after charging it and still would only work for 5 minutes AT MOST.

So don't think you are missing out. It's more frustrating to actually have it than not.

MrMcNuggett
08-11-2007, 03:53 AM

Don't worry, there is no utility CD. Nor drivers, that I could find. This model is a cross between two versions and I don't think either drivers work.


By the time you figure it out, your batteries will be fried... Just take it apart; it's neato. I salvaged the screen for some other project and some of the buttons work decently. :D
