Xbox LIVE Turns 10 this week

 

In case you missed my Tweet from yesterday: 
 


  If you like the look of that console and want to get one for yourself, you should stop back here Thursday (tomorrow) morning (PT)  where I’ll have complete details on how you can win one for yourself.

Plus, you’ll want to follow me Twitter because I’ve be running a separate contest (to win other stuff) just for my Twitter followers that I’ll kick off Thursday morning.

Just click the ‘Follow’ button above and you’ll be all set.

    This promotion is strictly US-only…. what about xbox live users outside of USA?

    • John Doe

      you don’t get one.

  • Traversia Viola

    Mr Nelson,
    XBOX support has put you down as the person that will tell us if we were on the list or not. Could you let me know if i was on the list. Member since 5 Oct 2012.

    If you had to suspend an account of 7 month periods for military deployments, would you still be in the running? I’ve had a gold since day one, but had to suspend it on occasion.

    • John Doe

      maybe if i casually refer to the fact i was military they’ll give me free stuff cause i was forced into the military

  • Jacob

    i been a member of Xbox live for Eight years and i’ve bought all of the original Xbox live arcade games live game that came with Ms. Pac-man on the disc

    • John Doe

      you get two

  • Seth Oyer

    I have been on since the original xbox beta and have a 10 but never heard anything. fingers crossed

  • FreezerBurn137

    Bullshit. I want an Xbox too. Freezer Burn is my gamertag. My account is over 10 years old. Was also a Beta Tester for Xbox Live. Thanks for shunning everyone other than Americans. Way to go Microsoft.

    Angry from Canada.

  • TonyLN

    I’ve also been an active member for the full 10 years. But because of a glitch when switching over to my family account when Reach came out it looks like I have only been a member for a couple of years now.

    That feel when you lost your first account because the account information was under your dad that passed away and had to make a new one making it so you don’t get a free xbox.

    • John Doe

      oh, what a story. you should totally get 10 free xboxes.

  • sidekick

    Been on since day 1 with two accounts – mine & my son’s (AidanHawk). Never had to change tags & still have both original Xboxes. I also still have my day 1 360 (never had RROD), but my son went through three original 360′s (2 RRODs) before we bought him the new one. Hoping our chances are doubled of getting one of these special editions since we’ve both been on Live since Nov. 2002.

    Anything going to happen for Canadian Xbox Live users (or other countries for that matter)?

    • John Doe

      yeah, you’ll probably get cold then eat waffles

    Wow! 10 years of gaming on XBL and some selected few would be rewarded with a custom xbox360 console!. I called 1 800 4my xbox and made sure I was on for 10 years, they said I’ve been with XBL for 10 years and hearing that made me happy and of course a chance to become one of the selected few. I’m a loyal Xbox live member and wil still continue to be so even though I went through 4 xbox 360 consoles due to the “Red Ring of Death”. But besided all that I’m happy playing Xbl with my friends and continue on to the next 10 years. Thank you Mircosoft!.

    • John Doe

      you’re totally getting a new xbox now

  • John Doe

    no one cares

  • John Doe

    you’re not receiving one because its a random drawing you delusional entitled twat

  • John Doe

    omg i remember playing ‘random old beta tester game here’ all the time!!! and i would ware my sweeter 2, but i framed it cuz im a dyehard xbox fan. i think itz bull that i didnt get a free xbox. other peeple got 1, but i didnt. i deserve it cuz i bought stuff from u and didnt get nuthing bak cept the stuff i bought. im going to get a playstation now and ur going out of business cuz ur stupid.

    I had an account since beta, but in 2005 I deployed…. lost my old account due to length of time. :(

  • bryan groff

    i have been a member of xbox live for 10 years and i am on my 4th 360 and have had 2 original xboxs and it be nice to catch a break and get one of these!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Gatchers Gareth Long

    So this is a generous gesture for US owners, but an equal kick in the teeth for non US owners. I have 10 years of tenure on Live, my badge shows ’10′ , but the statement seems to be ‘”Thanks to our loyal US customers, but the rest of you get sweet FA, we don’t really care about you lot”

  • http://www.facebook.com/daggart Adam Culberson

    No love for 10 year Canadian members Larry? I’ve been there since day 1 and never looked back. I still remember the day someone told me there would be voice communication and I was sold. Still remember logging a lot of hours playing Ghost Recon, but Halo 2 was the turning point for online console gaming and it has only gotten better. Here’s to the next 10!

  • disqus_UhvVRBIyJB

    Major Nelson, I have been a gold member since the beginning, also participated in beta. What contact info was used to ship the consoles?

    • John Doe

      not yours

  • Emmanuel Santos

    i guess i am not eligible for this since all social media is kinda verboten when you have a security clearance

  • Russell Gorall

    I got a code for some avatar item.

  • John Doe

    after i get done with your mom

  • http://twitter.com/RPCVBrian Brian Woods

    I beta’d and spent most of the last two years with my account stolen. I have eight years, even having paid while I was in Peace Corps for two years (that unfortunately didn’t overlap with the stolen account. :”(
    Maybe at 15! :D

  • http://twitter.com/Selden007 Kristopher Selden

    So, @xboxliverewards tweeted this morning that VIP emails went out this morning. Are these for the loyal customers that mjr Nelson mentions above? If so, I am so sad, because I did not get one. I guess I will wait for more info. Really hoping for one of these consoles.

  • Kareem Lewis

    I was a beta tester on the original xbox as well!! I hope that’s long enough. Should be!!1

  • http://twitter.com/TheK387 K387

    The people with less than 10 years or close to it need to chill. The only other people besides Americans to beta test the service don’t get anything, not even a mention

  • splunk splunk

    I have been using Xbox Live since the start…but I don’t feel that I’m entitled to a free 360…however, I would love to buy one of these consoles! Please put them up for sale. Originally IceBlast, now evilsaywhat.

  • http://twitter.com/CapnMikeM Mike Mahoney

    been a live member since 11/16/2002, owned 6 consoles, countless games, XBLA games, DLC, passes, Elite, etc etc and no console for me….how bout a Koozie? Cookies?

  • TonyLN

    It looks like letting people know that some users would be getting one of these for free was a big mistake.

    I think I deserve to have one anniversary console for me. I have bought, 2 original Xbox 360 systems from day one. 5 Xbox 360 S Systems which are Halo Reach, Halo 4, Star Wars, Gloss black and Matte black consoles and I have 2 original systems which I have bought in day one. I have supported Microsoft in many ways. I have been collector for Xbox many years and I really deserve my copy of that system to my collection.

    Been a XBL member since 11/16/2002. I’ve owned 6 consoles, countless games, XBLA games, DLC, passes, Elite, etc etc…but no console for me, at least not yet. Guess I bought the WiiU at the right time?!
