So, here’s a nice surprise to some of the Xbox LIVE members who have been with the service since day one. You may not know this, but the 10 year anniversary of Xbox LIVE is coming up and Microsoft is giving away custom Xbox 360′s as a thank you to those loyal enough to stay with the service for so long.
“I can confirm we’re surprising some of the Xbox Live members that have been with us the longest with one of these,” he tweeted, linking to a picture of gray console with a logo commemorating Xbox Live’s 10 year anniversary (shown above).
On AllGamesBeta, a recipient of the console posted pictures of the console that also included a letter from “The Xbox LIVE Team” stating this gift is in “appreciation for your commitment and loyalty to our service the past decade.” The package also contained a code for a free year of Xbox Live Gold.
How these members are chosen wasn’t disclosed, but I’m sure there will be thousands of gamers who feel they deserve one of these as well.
There is a chance that you can get one of these consoles however. Major Nelson returned with a follow-up tweet stating that there will be details on how you can win one of these consoles later this week.
