This is about as likely as me winning the Euromillions lottery on friday.
(please give away free Xbox's, Microsoft)

OMG I GOT ONE TOO TODAY!! Not! Pssh, I never win anything, except that one time when I won tickets to go watch 101 Dalmations. . .which I never recieved in the mail. Oh and the Lottery that my phone apparently won for me despite me never entering. I just need to send through $800 for admin purposes and my $250 000 will be on it's way!

Ha! That's F'd. I've never won anything ever... not even lame ass 101 Dalmatians tickets :/ A free XBOX would be nice. I'd give it to a friend since I have 2 already, and one of my best friends doesn't have a current gen gaming console.

Veterans why not say to game journalists .... no matter how much about games and played etc ... i never got a gift from them
bubblebeam  +   867d ago
That made no sense whatsoever lol.
blackbirdi  +   867d ago
shit i forgot to write no matter how much you bought games : i thought i edit that but i think i fail here :'(
bubblebeam  +   867d ago
Hahaha no worries mate, It was all for a laugh.

That edit button can be quite troublesome sometimes lol.
Dlacy13g  +   867d ago
Well I apparently will be 10yrs on live come 1/13/2013. My guess is that will net me .... a renewal fee. LOL

It doesn't bother me... I felt like I have gotten what I paid for.
BattleTorn  +   867d ago
10 years come 06/12/13 for me. I still have a couple friends on my list that were from back then.

Aaaah, i fondly remember the days when Halo 2 wasn't out yet, and Jedi Academy was where it was at. (and the Rainbow sixes, oooh and SC:Chaos theory :)
BattleTorn  +   867d ago
But, But But.... I've only Subbed for 9 Years!!!!!!!

MS better rollover the Gamercard # into next gen.

I was a first wave beta tester (first 10,000 selected), but havent renewed gold in a while. Wonder if that takes me out of the running. I still have the t-shirt, communicator, orange mem stick nfl fever, and the case it all came in.

This isn't a free Xbox 360. You paid them $520 for it.
ItsTrue  +   867d ago
If the xbox wasn't free, that means the 10 years of XBL was free.
jwk94  +   867d ago
No it wasn't. You're paying $520 to get access to this thing. that's like saying the Instant Game Collection for PS+ is free.
ItsTrue  +   867d ago
So where did this $520 come from? The guy clearly said he did not order it therefore, he did not pay $520 for it. With this said, your argument is invalid.
Hicken  +   867d ago
I think he's saying that the only way you get into the running for this "free" system is if you've paid around $520.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

YEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
SITH  +   867d ago
If I had my old original Xbox live beta account, I would be heading into my eleventh year and receiving one of these. But thanks to them dumping and forever locking out your accounts before the 360 launched, it is lost forever. Thanks ms for being douchebags.

And I still will pay for my Xbox live account like a fiend.
DeadIIIRed  +   867d ago
Same ship here, I've been using XBL for 10 years now, but with three separate accounts.
SITH  +   866d ago
I went to the Air Force after college, and forgot about my account when I was at OCS. It closed out. As soon as I got out and back to my Xbox, I tried to renew it and the told me it was gone forever. Conveniently they do not lock out your account anymore.

I once won a Forza 2 game signed by Turn 10 and an official MS Wheel. I traded them both in... lol
Y_5150  +   867d ago
I can feel the regret by reading this post...
NewZealander  +   867d ago
only thing i ever won was soul caliber 4 collectors edition, that included SC4 faceplate, was kinda a nice surprise at the time!
Droid Control  +   867d ago
M$ should have made these consoles look like the orginal xbox!
bozebo  +   867d ago
I'm so close :(

MotoGP ftw!

edit:
Wow, I was young then and my parents wouldn't let me have xbl till my birthday. Bastards lol.
