I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

Today, I saw a tweet made by Larry Hyrb aka "Major Nelson." showing this

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.

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.
