@ DroKing and A Bad Day: Right, but the fact that these particular consoles are 1. FREE and 2. still current-gen means you're both completely missing the point here. This is actually a very generous and surprising promotion for Microsoft to do, even if it's just for the US customers. What the heck more do you expect in this situation? A pre-release 720???

[citation][nom]DroKing[/nom]Cool little action but these consoles are still overpriced.[/citation]
They're free to whoever's been Xbox live member for 10 years

You'd think that the Xbox live members already have the same type of console...

The upcoming 25th anniversary special (year 2027) better be something really spectacular for those whom been committed from the very beginning, like a free ride on a SR-71 Blackbird over Siberia with two F-22s as escorts and anti-aircraft missiles shooting you from all sides for the ultimate Xbox experience.

Or, you get a free 30-day trial of Xbox Live Premium.

So they only wanted to make a small production and shipment of NTSC Region 1 consoles. Completely understandable. I mean, who are they really leaving out in the PAL and NTSC-J markets that qualify for ten year mark? I'd be surprised if it numbers beyond a few dozen, so they go with an option that doesn't incure shipping costs.

I wonder how much these could auction for. I mean think about it, how many people have been members for the whole 10 years (straight?). I'm not sure what the exact criteria are, but since you can't buy this console from a retailer, these people getting them may have quite the cash cow, especially maybe if they hold on to them longer in pristine condition. (I'm thinking that there are some collectors/museums out there, are at least will be.) Hehe...

This is hard to believe. They're just shipping consoles to people? I got an xbox live message giving me a code for the 10th Anniversary Avatar Helmet. Does this mean I get a console...?
