Xbox User Sets Record Highest Ever Gamer Score

Xbox 1 M GamerscoreFor some, it takes a lifetime to achieve their goals. For Raymond Cox, it took eight years, and countless video games. Cox, aka Stallion83, is the first person to reach the 1 million Xbox Live gamerscore—a cumulative count of all “achievements” earned across Xbox 360 and Xbox One titles.

This isn’t his first introduction to gamer fame, though. In 2010, Cox earned a Guinness World Record for “highest gamerscore,” which, at the time, was a measly 540,563. To put that into perspective, Microsoft revealed three years ago that the average Xbox Live user carries a gamerscore of about 11,300.

“My dad has been keeping track of my million journey for many years now by writing my score on a legal paper daily,” Cox tweeted alongside a photo of scribbled records.

The Tennessee resident has been documenting his journey via social media for years. He tweeted updates all week as he approached the milestone moment, which officially happened at 2:35 a.m. ET on March 13. More than 10,000 people tuned in to a Twitch.TV livestream to watch Cox’s reaction as his long-time score clicked past 1 million.

A faithful Microsoft console user, Cox long ago earned the attention of Redmond, which joined in the celebration this week—Xbox Live’s Larry Hryb was among the first to congratulate Stallion83 on his achievement.

Unsurprisingly, the title that finally pushed him past the finish line was the just-released Titanfall, played on Cox’s white Xbox One console. Over the years, Cox has developed into something of a celebrity in the gaming world, earning followers and fans, many of whom offered their own congratulations via Facebook and Twitter.

Here at ToT, we are undecided as to whether Microsoft should award him a Golden Controller for the achievement or if his console should just brick itself so he might finally go outside!
