Microsoft sends Xbox 360s to long-time users
Early last week, Microsoft confirmed that they are giving away special edition Xbox 360 consoles to people who’ve used their Xbox Live service the longest. The bundle also included a free year of Xbox Live. The service originally came out in 2002 for the Xbox.
Whenever I hear about some sort of crazy deal going on in the game industry, I tend to question the motives behind such charity. In this case, I think it might be just that. I guess you could say marketing and PR, but who is going to argue with the people mailing out Xbox 360s to people just for brand loyalty?
