    If it is, will I be able to transfer all of my stuff?
    And how do you get it? Do you have to have a gold xbox live acc?
    When does it end?

    What the hell? I don't get you. -_-'
    How would you get a free xbox 360 by buying a gold account?
    Also, what do you mean by when does it end?

    There was a post about Microsoft giving out free Xbox's if yours didn't support the new disc format.

    Oh, now I get you.
    Did you get any email from them?
    Also, it doesn't matter if you have gold or not.

    On the very, very off chance that your 360 doesn't support the discs, they'll give you a new 360. The cases of this are really slim right now, and the new discs have yet to be widely marketed.

    It was probably just a rumor about this change Microsoft will do if your Xbox doesn't support the new Update.
    And even in the rumor the % of the not working Xbox was very very low.

    I guess you have more chances to go play slot machines and win enough to get one for free. [​IMG]

    It wasn't a rumor, it was confirmed awhile back. Microsoft has made it a point to contact everybody with a model that can't read the new discs, and anybody out of the loop (like those that don't have Gold), would just have to make sure to contact Microsoft on their own time.

    If Microsoft starts using a product that you will be forced to use in order to continue to play new games on your Xbox 360, they are obligated to replace your 360, or lose a customer completely. One is generally more profitable than the other.

    Chances are you console will not run into those issues and if you so happen to you will be taken care of [​IMG]

    Do you have to send them the one that doesn't work with the new formats?
