    "Gold, but not solid gold Xbox 360s. These consoles still play Resident Evil 5, but you can’t buy one on eBay yet. Microsoft is giving these away as prizes for a Lunar New Year promotion. To get a chance at winning one you have to buy a brand new Xbox 360 with a 60GB hard drive or an Xbox 360 Elite between January 15 to February 15 . Sorry, Xbox 360 Arcade purchasers, Microsoft only wants big spenders in this contest.

    After that you need to write an essay and explain why you love your Xbox. Oh, and this is the most important part, you have to live in Hong Kong. It’s the only region I’ve seen Microsoft offer this contest in, which means whoever wins a gold Xbox 360 will have a real collector’s item in their hands."

    Gold case you say? Regular 360 shell + gold spray-paint = profits?

    Of all the places, why Hong Kong?! I mean, Microsoft is an American company so why not make this offer in the US as well?! Oh well, I guess I'll just have someone do a paint job on my 360 whenever I get one [​IMG] .

    So... to WIN a 360, I'd have to BUY a 360... doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense...

    Hey, I have an idea! Buy a bunch of water from my water bottle plant, and you can get a chance to win free water!!!

    YEAH!!!

    It's almost CHinese New Year so this promo when explained as Lunar celebration makes sense.

    Like Darkspace said, Lunar New Year, that and the fact that the 360 sales in Asia are horrible (probably cause they have good taste).

    Then as for the whole "Buying One" first.
    1. Buy 360
    2. Enter Contest
    3. Return 360 to store
    4. Get Golden 360
    5. ??????
    6. Profit
