10th Anniversary XBL = Free 360's?!?!

Post by S7 Interseptor on Tue Nov 13, 2012 5:56 pm



Xbox Live turns 10 this year and Microsoft appears to be celebrating by giving away special, anniversary-branded Xbox 360 consoles to those who have been around since the early days. There's been no formal confirmation from Microsoft, but reports and photos from around the web offer pretty concrete evidence.

One Redditor claims to have received a phone call on October 22, 2012 about the 10th anniversary of Xbox Live, letting the user know that he's "one of their most valued members." A few weeks later (aka yesterday), a package arrived containing what you see in the above image. A similar report comes via one Kotaku user.

The only official confirmation so far that something is up came from Major Nelson, who tweeted yesterday about the anniversary and promising news to come. It looks like this news has taken care of itself.

Aww, too bad I didn't have an account of my own until the 360.

Same here but Miller has had his FOREVER. I wonder if it's true. And if so, will Miller get one?

I had mine day one as well. No call, email, or text from MS Evil or Very Mad .
I left poor Sony for the new shiny object and never looked back.

I basically had my account with the launch of Halo 2, so I missed out on a couple of years. The only games that I actually had for the Xbox were Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Timesplitters: Future Perfect. Halo: Combat Evolved didn't support Xbox Live as far as I know, so I had no need to purchase the Xbox Live service on day one.

Correct, to play Halo online we used Xbox Connect, a tunneling program you ran simultaneously on your Networked PC. It actually worked really well. The first big XBL game for the original black box was Unreal Championship which was great. Many hours of CTF were spent in that game.

Oh the days of XBC. I did spend a lot of time with my friends playing Halo CE on XBC.

Yeah, not only w/Xbox since the beginning also on box #8-9 now after the red-ring epidemic.
If ANYBODY Rolling Eyes should get one...it's certainly me.

Keep in mind, this is Xbox Live from back from before the 360. We are talking about the ORIGINAL Xbox back in 2002.

Yep, I believe it was early September of 2002 that I started my Xbox Live life. Changed my whole outlook on gaming.

I remember the day that I opened up my starter kit. Ah the good old days.

Follow the links. You download a gamerpic and it enters you in to the contest. You also get an entry if you're signed up for Xbox Rewards. Has nothing to do with how long you've had the GT.
