Microsoft Makes things right

You might remember a story from a couple weeks ago about Nathaniel, he sent in his autographed X-box 360 in to get it repaired and they sent back the 360 with all the autographs and pictures wiped clean.... Nathaniel had traveled around with his 360 getting autographs from Dozens of people from the 360 team as well as from Bungie, now all his hard work was erased. You might also remember a week or 2 after that Bungie sended Nathaniel a Halo 3 themed goody bag along with autographs from the Bungie team.

Included in that Goody-Bag(incase you didn't see the original story) was
* Legendary Edition Helmet signed by most–if not all–of the studio staff
* Halo 3 Soundtrack (two disc) signed by Marty O'Donnel (with "DO NOT ERASE!" written under his name)
* Bungie Jacket
* Bungie T-Shirt
* Halo 3 Messenger Bag
* Two Halo 3 Limited Edition Wireless Controllers (one covenant, one human)
* Halo 3 Faceplate and Skins for Xbox 360
* Four McFarlane Action Figures (MC, EVA Spartan, Brute Chieftan, Jackal Sniper)
* Halo Actionclix Preview pack (Target exclusive sticker on the front)
* Halo Actionclix Game Pack 4
* Halo 3 Wall Graffix
* Halo 3: Ghosts of Onyx Novel
* Halo Graphic Novel
* Halo 3 Wristband
* Halo 3 Hackeysack

Well now a few weeks later Nathaniel received a second package from Microsoft themselves including a new xbox 360 signed by members of the 360 team and a Faceplate signed by Bill Gates himself.

The full list of items is this

* 1 Xbox 360 console (signed by original RT signers, new artwork by Luke McKay, signatures from Xbox 360 team, additional signatures from Bungie Staff)
* 1 Xbox 360 faceplate (signed by Bill Gates, among others)
* Devil May Cry 4
* Lost Odyssey
* Rainbow Six Vegas 2
* Gears of War
* Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom
* 2 'What's Your Gamerscore?' Bumperstickers
* Xbox 360 CD Wallet
* Signed picture of Bill Gates

Well dang, Kudos to Microsoft. Am thinking about getting a new 360 and pulling a stunt like this just to get this royal treatment...

LJWooly3863d ago

MS did nothing. It was Bungie's idea.

ambientFLIER3863d ago

Bungie forged Gates' signature?

LJWooly3863d ago

Sorry, I misread the article, and it was too late for me to edit it out...

Now I look all silly :'(

DARKKNIGHT3863d ago (Edited 3863d ago )

im happy for this guy and i hope he does not have to send his unit in for repairs.

Anything THAT custom, has to be worth 1500 at least.This is a great collectors item.

M$ and Bungie went way out of their way for this, kudos to both!

GutZ313862d ago

I still think its less then stellar, the console before had class, and actually wasnt cluttered with poorly written text, and a quick drawing that makes the lost work look 100x better.

Although it is a great gesture, the fact is that it still happened, and that we are still awaiting to see that it never does happen again, that is the whole point of this.

Danja3863d ago

Pity that the Big M is still ripping you off with having to pay for Online Play....ohh there still shipping Ticking Time Bombs to retailers also....

Way to spam up a great article, DanjaDouche.

Phil Harrison Mk43863d ago

Well they can't sell all that stuff!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D

Little King3863d ago

just another 33.333% of there total consumers to please

Fat Bastard3863d ago

Microsoft sent him another console. Now why would that be? Maybe cause they knew the one Bungie sent him would surely RROD in a few months and they didn't want him pissed, and it's not like the extra they sent him cost any money. They just have to go to the electronics dump and throw whatever they find into a nice white box. Haha

Damn...I think Nathaniel has forgiven MS haha

Hatchetforce3859d ago

Really? How about they step up for my 3 RRODs and broken out of the box Play and Charge kit in my HALO edition that cost me 10 bucks in batteries before the replacement arrived. How about they step up and reimburse me for all of the LIVE downtime I lost due to broken consoles. I was comped for 4 out of 14 weeks. People are being just a little to quick to thank MS for a few items and some ink.
