Free Xbox 360 Consoles for Long-Time Xbox Live Users

People who've been using the service the longest are being treated with a special thank-you gift from Microsoft.

Xbox Live just hit its 10th anniversary, and Microsoft is rewarding its most faithful members with a free Xbox 360 console.
Microsoft Xbox staffer Larry Hryb, better known as Major Nelson, tweeted the news yesterday, saying: "I can confirm we're surprising some of the Xbox Live members that have been with us the longest with one of these." And by "these," he means a brand-new Xbox 360.
The surprise gift includes a custom controller, a logo on the console that reads "decade of entertainment," and a plate on the disc tray door that says "XBL10," according to gaming blog site Kotaku.

Lets see, 10 years x $50 = $500, so yeah that should just about cover a new console, lol. Still, nice present for some I'm sure, I actually just chose not to renew, I bought my Xbox 360 like a year and a half ago (have had a PS3 for a while before that) and got Gold membership because people said it was better than PS3 somehow, didn't see a difference so I went back to the free one.

I've had my member name for at least the 10 yr's, so maybe I'll be getting 1.

I wonder what the longest membership is and how they send the gift to them. Pretty neat though!

I am assuming you have to have been a member for 10 years, still a very nice surprise for those people.
