Unless you've been living under a small mobile home for the past few days, then you should know that Xbox Live is celebrating
its 5th birthday on Thursday. Hooray! And we figured you'd like to know exactly what's planned and what's scheduled to go down. That's where bullet lists come in. Check out all of Thursday's Xbox is 5IVE birthday fun:
- Game with Fame: Lots of developers, playing lots of games with you on Xbox Live
- Play and Win: Pre-register to win oodles and oodles of Xbox 360 goodies.
- All-Nighter: You've been summoned to play old school Wolfenstein until you pass out.
- FREE Carcassonne! It's your birthday gift.
- FREE Microsoft points! 500 points if you're an '02 alum.
- Frag Doll Friday: Play GRAW with those fragging chicks.
We hope these event will make your Xbox Live birthday celebration all the more memorable and get you pumped to game the day away. HAPPY BIRTHDAY XBOX LIVE!

This will all be pointless if MS can't get XBL up and running by then. Seriously, where does our $60 go anyways? Thats one expensive Chat lobby I'm paying for....;)

I thought it was Ghost Recon .... not GRAW

Frag dolls, huh? Well at least they're not using the Pathetic Mean Skanks clan to promote this like everything else.

I don't know about you, but I'm more than happy to pay $50 per year to be called "teh gey" by kids half my age in Halo 3.

Yeah, their pages for the Play-and-Win are down like a clown, Charlie Brown. Nice followup to the primetime Live downtime yesterday.

How can I find out when I joined up xbox live? Anything before the launch of Xbox 360 is all a blur to me =)

Who the hell are the Frag Dolls? I keep hearing that name like it must be known in all Xbox Live gaming circles.
I'm guessing this sense of disappointment won't disappear when I finally search for them on Google.

This sucks - competition open to residents of the USA only.
Damn you America, Damn you all to hell! ;o)

Carcassonne? Really? Why not something better for the 5 year mark.. like Alien Hominid? Or how about giving us 800MS Points and letting us pick what we want.

wolfenstein?!!! are you serious the game that started fps and my all time favorite game? I'm there!
11-14-2007 @ 12:10AM
just noticed its not the real wolfenstein...oh well
11-14-2007 @ 8:02AM
Open to legal US residents only. FUCK OFF.
The rest of the world pays for Xbox Live too you know.

You Xenophobic Americans. (Just aimed at M$ not everyone.)
Just because we live in another country doesnt mean that we dont play. Canadian's and the rest of the world have been getting screwed out of every goddamn contest. Suuure, give us those silly camero gamer pics and themes, but don't give us the op to win cool shit.
