  • Cristovao Morgado

    US Only?? :(

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/Knux95 DrunkenCreepBomb

      Nope, I still got this T-Shirt when I live in Russia.

      • Cristovao Morgado

        Maybe it’s only for countries where there will be Zero Day Xbox one :(

        I ordered mine from ebay france as Portugal is out of the first list

        • Rick

          Ebay would be why you didn’t get one.

    • BountyBob

      Got mine in the UK

  • steveo99

    Can’t wait for my Xbox One!

    • Robert Distefano

      It’s going to be awesome!

    • DarkMaturus

      I’m pumped too!

  • Robert Distefano

    What about an Xbox One gamerpic?

  • http://polskilive.pl/ Zbigniew Borowski

    Kinda sad it’s only for regions where Xbox One is going to launch this year. I think every Xbox LIVE country should have the right to support Microsoft’s new console.

    • Dwight Power

      The sad part is people are willing to support a console with such horrible consumer unfriendly practices.

      And you’re willing to advertise for them, for free.

  • DaxterZA

    Does it come in black? Im Batman

  • lagrew

    dear lord major never have i seen such problems over something that is free. lol…

  • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

    Thanks for the free t shirt, there also a free avatar prop on UK dashboard for a windows 8 phone, Still waiting on my avatar surface prop though

  • Arcona

    then don’t get it… it’s free, what’s the problem

  • Arcona

    it must be cause its not working in certain countries…

  • scorand

    oh thank you so much for such a wonderful gift for such a undeserving bunch.. nelson you and the xcrap team are fucktards of the highest degree.

  • Karl Cramer

    I really, really wish Major Nelson would moderate his blog comments for troll commenters. One of Swords does a pretty good job keeping the creeps out of his site.

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      I’ve been pretty busy, but I have time now. I do want to provide a nice balance of constructive conversation though. PLEASE flag any comments that may be questionable so I can review.

      • http://www.xboxteamportugal.com/ Rui Carriço

        Major, can’t download this in Portugal, any region restriction?

      • TonyLN

        A ‘nice balance’ is good — but people just coming in here and hating to hate needs to be stopped. Throw down the ban hammer on those that are not being remotely constructive in any of their posts!

      • Syres

        Hey Major Nelson can I maybe get a cool Xbox One premium theme for my dashboard background. I have my 360 sync hat, my halo shorts, my Xbox one shirt, but now I need an awesome background to go with it all.

  • John Smith

    will this be transferable to the xbox one?

    • Dwight Power

      Microsoft: No! Once you get one, your advertising job for us is done.

    • digitalicecream

      why wouldnt it be? It’s your live account, not the playstation, you should be able to see your avatar on windows 8 also

      • Doctorossi

        So far, not much is proving transferable and, while they haven’t mentioned avatar transfer specifically, there has been mention of an upcoming avatar re-design. I doubt Microsoft would want to invest the effort in re-building all or even just some existing avatar items in a new avatar system.

  • Dwight Power

    I see what you did there… hehe.

    I mean they’re trying pretty hard letting you play 16 games for free. But I dunno… This free advertising for MS thing might just be the next big thing in gaming.

  • MauricioNoh

    This guy named “Dwight Power” does he have a job? Hes here all day talking about PlayStation and thrashtalking about Xbox, this is a blog about Xbox so GTFO dude, wrong place wrong time, you should be banned from here.

    • Doctorossi

      Or, you could ignore him.

    • digitalicecream

  • SLiSH83

    MS needs someone who can lead the Xbox brand Don Mattrick has to go, if it was his idea for 24 hr Internet check ins and strick DRM policies then they need to be let go as well.
    Xbox needs someone who can excite a crowd and gamers Mattrick in to bland and to wishy washy after press events

    • digitalicecream

      Have you been paying attention at all?? They changed all that. Go read the news.

  • dibils

    if there was no used games the prices for new games would be far lower, they would also drop in price alot quicker too. taking away the used market isnt just about “no used market”, its about how it effects the whole industry, think outside the box abit then come back

  • http://instantnyc12.tumblr.com/ Terrence Aybar

    I preordered on Amazon, does that get me an Xbox One shirt?

  • BostonSup

    Reserve an Xbox One? Why?? It will be $100 cheaper by the next holiday season (to match PS4) and all it comes with is:
    -Xbox Controller with small printing of “Day One” that ups the value by $0.
    -Xbox Achievement for Day One, that is valued at $0.
    -Xbox “premium packaging”, which is valued at $0 because it the box it comes in!

    I can however spend an extra $100 to get a PS4 bundle with a game and a year of PS+ ($100 value).

    So no, didn’t fall on my head and decided to overspend on a pre-order that gives you absolutely nothing.

    MS really needs to fire a LOT of people! Your good Hryb, MS should promote you.

    • digitalicecream

      You’re comments are ignorant. so I’ll enlighten you.

      Xbox is $100 more expensive than the PS4 because you get a better ecosystem, a better vision of what’s to come, and a better value over all.

      The cost of the console includes the Kinect 2. which will likely at some point be sold at retail for over $99. The Sony PS4 will not come with Move controllers, or their Eye for tracking. You get to buy those seperately, congratulations on saving $100 now to spend that or more later.

      I didn’t pre-order because I had to have it, or because I was going to get something special out of it. I got it because I believe the Xbox One is the right platform to get. But you’re welcome to cheer for the competition, I’m certain they’re going to give you new pom pom’s this year for doing so.

      Hryb has probably been offered several promotions by now. But I’ll be he’s declined at least one. Being Major Nelson and having fun at your job is a great opportunity.

      Also, you misspelled Boston Soup.

      • John Smith

        “Ecosystem”??? Finally, someone justifies the extra $100 in a way that makes sense.

      • BigBernard

        You got something brown on your nose there…

        • digitalicecream

          Your mom?

          • BigBernard

            Genius reply there…..genius.

      • ikari_paul

        “Better” is only your opinion

        Dont believe its a general truth.

        • digitalicecream

          It’s subjective, but far more eloquent and on target than your trolling. But keep commenting, because we all know what good it does you.

  • mdwhitby

    It’s not being forced on you. You either buy an Xbox One complete with Kinect or you don’t buy an Xbox One.

  • Daryl Aiken

    Downloading, thanks! Can’t wait till November.

  • John Smith

    Hey, is there anyway the shirt can be turned inside-out? You know, the other avatars and all….

  • Syres

    Hey Major Nelson can I maybe get a cool Xbox One premium theme for my dashboard background. I have my 360 sync hat, my halo shorts, my Xbox one shirt, but now I need and awesome background to go with it all.

  • John Smith

    hey microsoft lets make a deal my friends and i will buy the xbox one if you let us transfer all our xbla games…we will go out & pre-order it as soon as you announce it

    • Jeremy Filth

      lol.

  • Dylan

    “Are you a developer!?”

  • Sean Mccoy

    green is a ugly color xbox needs a new color like black or dark red

    • Sean Mccoy

      for the backround for the logo

  • Sean Mccoy

    I would love to F@RT in Major nelson face

  • Time Will

    can not believe there wont be a halo game the time of release of the x1 hope they bring halo 4 to x1 then halo 5

    • Dylan

      The first Halo game on Xbox One will probably be Halo 2 Anniversary.

      • Time Will

        when will it be released

  • Dwight Power

    That’s a lot of games for subscribing to PlayStation Plus for just $49.99 a year. This got me wondering… just how much does that $49.99 get you in value? Now that I had all of the free games offered right before my very eyes, a little bit of lazy Googling and lazier mathematics through an Excel spreadsheet I whipped up gave me the answer I was looking for.

    Ready for this? In just one year of PlayStation Plus—all the free games pictured up top—are valued at roughly $1854.86.

    This is unheard of in the history of consoles. No matter which way you slice it.

    You can argue all you want about you not owning them forever, but let’s be real. Most of us gamers have enough games to play without having to revisit every single game we own. Some games are meant to be beaten in a weekend, enjoyed for what they are, and never be touched again.

    Put it however you want, that is one hell of a deal.

    Plus, if you have to revisit a game after owning it for one year, you should probably buy it. And you would be crazy to not be a PS+ life long subscriber. So I guess, maybe they are yours forever.

    • boe2

      Yet, instead of playing them you keep coming here, repeating the same comment over and over and over ;)

    • Does Not Equal

      Is this an advertisement?

    • Ice

      Ok, you rent a lot of game…

    • hiruu

      Who let this troll in…sorry, but Larry need to boot this guy!

    • Syres

      Games thru playstation plus are rentals, you don’t actually own them, I had Ps+ and the only free games I got that I got to keep where from when Sony PSN went down for 2 months.

      • Jeremy Filth

        You guys like to say “rent” alot. I’m sure you’re all a bunch of hypocrites that are using Netflix right now, works the same way as plus.

        • Allergic2tea

          But I thought DRM is the downfall of gaming civilization as we know it? No? Just when MS does it? Ok.

          • Jeremy Filth

            In the manner of how Microsoft was approaching the DRM tactics, yes.

  • Ricardo Rico

    just got this, cool shirt i just need my kinectless sku tho

  • DaveF

    You can still get the shirt, just click one of the ‘grab them here’ links.

  • jose cuellar

    the Xbox one is no longer region locked so xbox from US can be used in other countries.

  • pulseimpact

    I think more hairstyles and animations would be enough. I don’t care that much about my avatars, but giving more animations so you could make your pic unique would be nice. Also, a bigger field of view for when using a prop. The prop is often way outside the space given for the camera.

  • Phil Balliet

    Got mine! Thanks.

  • doomed

    only one free game so far this month and not either of the 2 promised. Guess we better take what we can when we can no matter how crappy and useless it is.

  • InfernoShade

    I was going to answer you, but you’re long rant is filled with misinformation. It’s basically gamer fanboy rage IMO.

    Believe what you want. There’s no difference between Sony or MS. They have both made promises and changed them over the years. Neither company cares more or less. It’s all business. They offer services. Some people like them, others don’t. No need to go ballistic.

    • Not_A_PC_Gamer

      No son, you believe what you want.. there is plenty of differences between Sony and MS.. and Sony is clearly more consumer friendly.

      1. Hiding free apps behind a paywall eh? Why is it that on PS3 I don’t need PSN+ to access Netflix, Hulu Plus, You Tube, Cinema Now, Vudu or even the Internet browser eh? Why is it that Sony announced that despite charging for PSN MP (I always thought charging for online MP on PSN would be a good thing) on PS4, YOU STILL DON’T NEED PSN+ TO ACCESS ALL MEDIA APPS?

      2. XBL price hike.. was 50, then it was 60 USD, you better be prepared for another one because it’s inevitable. Sony is less likely to do this based on MS’s overall greedy track record and that’s all that needs to be said. The plain fact that MS thinks they could do this and mindless idiots don’t mind paying for it is just sad. It’s sad that this difference of principles between M$ and Sony is what really differentiates the attitude towards the consumer and yet you STILL FAIL TO SEE THIS? Anyone with any rational thought would read my number 2 point and take notice unless they are completely inept.

      3. MS taking away features and apps such as Netflix parties, Family Gold plan, 1 vs. 100 and many other things without even the slightest notice to the consumer!

      And don’t even get me started about everything that has happened since their poorly thought out reveal all the way to their 180 degree turnaround which not only proved that they LIED AND DECEIVED ALL OF US by stating that the DRM couldn’t be reversed when in fact it will be with a day one update?

      If you can’t grasp these concepts then you are completely inept and Naive. Even after agreeing with you to a small extent that both companies have done wrong in the past, any logical and sane person will tell you to take a step back and look at MS’s track record throughout the years and then get back to me..

      • InfernoShade

        No crazy ranting child, you believe what you want. :)
