How does a brand new Xbox 360 sound? How about a free year of Xbox Live? Not too bad, right? All you've gotta do is be enrolled in the current beta that provides Xbox 360 gamers with an update that readies the Microsoft console for updated retail discs with more space for developers.
Oh, and your Xbox has to be one of the few models that refuses to read the updated discs. Goddamit, it's like the f****** lottery. One beta tester received an e-mail from Microsoft support stating:
Avery Penn, the lucky gamer who received this e-mail said:
This particular gamer said that his Xbox 360 was still playing discs at the time he received the e-mail and that his Xbox was a 60GB Pro console from 2009. I don't know about you, but my Xbox 360 is older, has a smaller hard drive, and sounds like a jet engine. I'll happily go without it for a few days if it means getting a new unit.
[Update]: Major Nelson has confirmed that the replaced Xbox 360 was not the result of the upcoming Spring Dashboard Update. The Xbox 360 was replaced due to a hardware failure as a result of an old update.
