In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Today, I saw a tweet made by Larry Hyrb aka "Major Nelson." showing this
https://twitter.com/majornelson/status/268484136946253825
So, from what I've read, people who has been with Xbox LIVE service the longest may receive one in the mail. So, how long have you guys been with Xbox LIVE? I'm with Xbox LIVE 5+ according to my GC

I've had Xbox Live on and off for the past 6 years. I think my current sub is on level 3.

It's a "10 Year Anniversary" console so I assume you have to be the owner of an uninterrupted membership for 10 years. Like, since Mech Assault. That's pretty hardcore. Cool surprise promotion.

I've been on 10 years since beta testing and all I got was a redeemable code for a stupid avatar helmet.

Shitty!

In my experience there's no such thing as a "free" console.

It's kinda shit that the comp thing is only available in the US, despite the specifically mentioned international gamerscore/achievements in the announcement thing .
5yr+ here, too.

Oh right, they also were giving a most likely crappy XBLA Kinect game to everyone for free.

They are bringing xbox live to windows 8 though. If they would allow me to play with my friends with xboxs I would definitely buy in.

If only that future could be guaranteed. I would love more cross-platform multiplayer opportunities.

They won't do it, because trials they ran early on had the PC players ruining the xbox players because of the keyboard+mouse advantage.
If they did end up doing it, you'd probably be forced to use a 360 controller for pc.

Im cool with that. I already use it in 90% of the games I play these days. I don't think Ive run into a game that doesn't support it in the past 4 years other than Mass Effect 3 which was really bioware being lazy(Or EA trying to milk more money from players? Like they would then have to go buy the console version?)

Ive always supported multiplayer games with the idea of forcing xbox controllers but I fear those servers would be mostly empty. Maybe im wrong, or I really am alone Crying or Very sad

I hate using the 360 controller on my PC, but because there's so many lazy twits who just port a 360 game directly without changing any menus or anything, you get games like skyrim where the menu is a clunky heap of shit unless you're using the controller.

The ME and Halo series are really the only console/PC games where i use the keyboard and mouse, and that's for the shooting. Even when done incorrectly the mouse is faster. It's getting bad these days where everything else feels smoother with the controller.
