    If you've been using XBOX Live for a decade or more then your loyalty is about to pay off. On Major Nelson's Twitter page, it has been confirmed that in celebration for the XBOX's 10th year Anniversary Microsoft will be distributing limited edition XBOX 360s. The catch is that you have to have been a XBOX live user for 10 years to be a possible recipient.

    That's nice of them, although are they going to do the usual a limit the console to US members only, or will everyone who has been a member for that long get a chance at one?

    apparently it's only a select number of people (not everybody who has a 10 year old account will get one)

    Honestly? That is one swell XBox 360 right there. I really like the decals, the parts of the overall design blend together seemlessly - that'd be one nice trophy on a gamer's shelf.

    while it is nice to see MS rewarding loyalty and what not the colour scheme on that Xbox is horrible.

    Personally I think this is kinda silly considering the amount of money wasted over a 10 year period.
    It's the same as any old 360 Slim inside and these people already own hardware, it would be better if they gave them some free games.

    Does that mean people with a 10 year old account, or people who have been paying subscribers for the entirety of that 10 years?

    Actually wouldn't that mean they would've had to be live account holders on the Original Xbox?
    That REALLY limits the number of live account holders then doesn't it?

    Hark! They already gave a staggering 20MS points to Xbox players with very high gamer scores on their birthdays!

    Edit: Apparently the new forums don't auto-merge potential double posts, my bad.

    Pretty sure it means paying Xbox Live Gold members. Damn I didn't renew last year, fuck! I've been there since day one!

    To bad I've not been a Live member for 10 years.
    Neat xbox tho.

    I'm sure these ones will fetch a lot of money on ebay.
    I wonder what custom startup sounds there are for this one (hopefully some of the old xbox <3)

    But they are (e)x-box(ers). :(

    I think the xbox looks alright. It's a nice gift for the people who manage to get their
    hands on it.

    Only for people who have had Live on in the latest 10 years?

    Too bad that there's only one guy who'll receive this then, and that's Major Nelson.

    Nice of them to reward loyalty, although as mentioned I doubt they'll have to give out too many of them.

    Honestly, with how the original Xbox ended up doing, I wouldn't imagine there being more than 10 people that have been paying subscribers for the entirety of the past decade.

    Another limited edition 360, I'll be honest I'm not completely shocked.

    Well this looks to be actually limited edition, ie you can't buy it in a store and it's only for a select number of long time subscribers.

    Looks to be an actual collector's item in time.

    ...

    $50 x 10 = $500.00

    Yeah, I think members actually bought this console instead.

    let's see how it can work
    if you are
    10y member
    used Live EVER DAY for X about of time each day in the 10y
    and gamerscore at X amount
    NEVER BEEN BANNED or flag for anything,

    then you have a small chance to be picked to get one

    I may have qualified if my damn hotmail account that I had since elementary didn't get hacked or micro$oft didn't refuse to let me have it back :( not that I care too much.
