Celebrate 10-Years of Xbox with this free Avatar item

Today marks the 10-year Anniversary of Xbox. On this day on 2001, the Xbox was launched with a dozen titles, including Halo: Combat Evolved. It’s been a fantastic 10 years, and to thank you we’ve got a little gift for Xbox LIVE Members: A free prop for your Xbox LIVE Avatar. This free item will be available in all Xbox LIVE regions until this Saturday, so be sure to add it to your Xbox 360 download queue now.

If audio is your thing, I went into the Xbox archives and found this clip from the Original Xbox dashboard. This is the audio effect that was used to transition from one section of the Original Xbox dashboard to the another.

On behalf of everyone at Xbox, thank you for being a part of 10 great years of great gaming.
