I got it and I've only been an XBox Live member (gold member intermittently) since 2005...

I was part of the beta launch of Live back in the day. Still have the headset, memory card and shirt that came with the beta kit.

I was hoping for a free xbox. :cry:

Oh, word, I didn't get an email but I got a message on XBL with a code for the helmet! How do you check your XBL tenure now? It used to show it on your gamer tag but I don't see that anywhere.

Should still be there. Go to System then in yur profile or even under Social then clicking stuff for your Avatar should show it.

I signed up with XBL in like 2004 but different Live ID which is now "linked" to my current one since I can't merge em now :( Same GamerTag though so wondering if that's how they tie em? (even though it shows my Tenure as being 1yr since I was off Xbox Live for a bit :( )

XBox Live Vet here.

I actually read on Kotaku I think it was how some 10 year members just received that custom XBox that is now in the sweepstakes. Was hoping I would somehow wind up being one of those people. :laugh:

The actual value of electronic prizes is subject to price fluctuations in the consumer marketplace based on, among other things, any gap in time between the date the ARV is estimated for purposes of these Official Rules and the date the prize is awarded or redeemed.

I was a Beta Tester for Xbox Live on the original Xbox and now a 10 year member and they couldn't even send me that special email, just the message on my Xbox. You would think since they only had a few thousand beta tester for the service they could have at least sent all those people the email or the free Xbox .

I guess I could check my game history and see what the first game I ever played was... 2007!

I'd never touched an Xbox before the Xbox 360 came out. Had never even seen one in the flesh. Or the plastic. :s

I remember playing a version of Whacked! during XBL Beta testing (first game I ever played online on XBL I was told to skullf**k myself after destroying someone...) as well as NFL Fever. Anyone remember Microsoft trying to start XSN Sports?

You're right. I found it. It says 5 for me because I've been on and off gold at times, but I've had an account since the day the 360 launched. I think I missed out on XBL on my original Xbox because mine was modded and I used Xlink.

I was under the impression that they already gave out 10th anniversary consoles to some people who had been members since the start, but I hear a lot of people who were in the beta who didn't get one... first wave only maybe? Or was there never any given away before, and only through the giveaway are they giving them away?

Not sure what the cut off is for being considered an elite member. So my account would be 7 years old and 5 of those gold. Anyway, I finally got the email as well. Even if it's just a helmet, thanks MS!

Thanks for starting this Boz. When I got that email asking us do we remember when we joined Xbox, I seriously cried a little. So many things have happened in the world in those six years



This is a really nice you hnon their part, nice poster tho it leaves many important games and activities out.

How do you qualify as a veteran? Is six years enough?

Then there must be more then 5. 5 tied to the contest plus those that were sent out.
