Microsoft Sending Special Gift To Those Who’ve Been a Member of Xbox Live for 10 Years?

VGR: According to a former writer here at, Microsoft is contacting people who have been a member of the service for 10 years and obtaining address information in order to mail them a “special gift.”

"So Xbox Just called me, saying they wanted to verify my address. They want to send me a ten year anniv gift! Sounds pretty exciting." (Microsoft, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE)

Hard to tell

The disagrees your getting I guess are from people who know you and have kept up with how long you've been a member.
Campy da Camper  +   1141d ago
No, I disagreed because I have been a member for 9 years.

See, he said,

"Damn, only been a member for 8 years"

And for me this is not a true statement so I disagreed. I have been a member for 9+ years. When someone says something that you disagree with you hit the button that says, "disagree".

@Campy da Camper

but it is a true statement....

no matter how long YOU have been a member, he has been a member for 8 years.

he is not lying to you!

understand what a disagree is for.

@Campy da Camper

That's a ridiculous reason to disagree with someone.

Microsoft gave me 5 bucks worth of MS points just because I had played a lot of halo 2 when they shut the servers down, I wonder what the gift for a ten year member is? Could be exciting.
opinska  +   1140d ago
10 bucks!

As of December 25th, I'll have been an Xbox Live member for 10 years. Too bad they're only rewarding the people who got it on the day it launched. ._.

I been a member for 10 years but forgot my password and email to my original account. than i got my 360 and didn't think it was a big deal and hated my screen name so i made a new accout, i was a kid at the time and was anxious to play and when i made the account I thought it was like ps2 online and ended up making a screen name like g4a133cc thinking i can make a new account anytime. ahhh the good old days playing mech assault all the time lol.

Too bad they don't go by actual user and not just GT because I have had it since launch but I believe I altered the name by one letter after one xbox died and I could not recover the old GT. Hmm.. now that I think of it, I have had at least 2 accounts at the same time for many years to allow my wife/kids to play - that SHOULD be worth something!

Great that MS choose to give out something to Loyal live members. However, if it is something small/not too expensive then they should have given it to all Day1 members
GraveLord  +   1141d ago
Don't get too excited. Prolly just a virtual T-shirt coupon for your Xbox avatar.
ShadowKingx  +   1141d ago
Probably just a free 3 month live card or an xbox avater t-shirt that says 10th anniversary on it.
whitesoxfalife1976  +   1141d ago

Been a member for 10 years just changed my gamertag and card holder.

In a way, this kinda sucks. Cause I've had Live for 10 years.
Although, it's been under different two different names, and different cards.
3-4-5  +   1141d ago
I can't remember if I've been a member for 8,9 or 10 years now.

Hopefully this time it wont be a 1% or 2% discount. Does 3% sound realistic?
bubblebeam  +   1141d ago
I think Microsoft MIGHT settle for 2.5%.

Notice I said MIGHT lol. Haha hopefully it is something nice. I have been a member for 3 years :(

I've been a member since day one...however when I was a kid I had used my mom credit card and couldn't recover that account when I moved over to 360(you needed a credit card on original xbox). A bummer I'm missing out, but oh well.
