The lights are on
The details aren't clear quite yet, but long-time Xbox Live members, those who have been on the service for 10 years, are getting a surprise from Microsoft.
Microsoft's Larry Hryb confirmed a report from Kotaku this morning saying "some" Xbox Live members are getting a commemorative console to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of Xbox Live. Hryb said he'll be able to share more details about this later in the week.
Additional photos of consoles showing up on people's doorsteps can be seen here.
and what an ugly console it is.
10 years! My god, I am getting old...
thats actually- wow, ten years... okay...
That is pretty cool. Too bad I wasn't old enough to get xbl when it first came out.
Holy crap, I didn't know Xbox Live had been out that long. I wish I had either of my first 2 accounts from back then.
where the hell is mine ive had live for 10 years
Very cool - I am only at six years, but nice to see the early customers are getting a cool console
6 months late to the party...
Amazing that the service has been around for a decade and is as strong as it is today. Also a great way to show appreciation on the part of Microsoft. I think everyone would agree that's not like them. Plus 100 cool points for Microsoft, bringing their new high score up to -9900. It is a nice gift for those people though.
Next time! This is a nice token of appreciation for those who've been longtime Xbox fans.
This is cool but sucks in some ways. I bought my original Xbox day one. Where I lived at the time I had no high speed internet. But I'll be around for the 20th. Congrats to all those that got one.
There are probably only a small number of people who qualify for this which is probably why they are doing it.
10 YEARS! Give a guy a break.
7 years i think, so close
Very cool. Too bad I switched to a personal account from the one I shared with my dad back in high school :/
