Fanswag Weekly: Live turns five mega giveaway [update]


[Update: This giveaway is now closed and our winner has been notified. Check your inbox (and spam box), you might be our winner.]

So, perhaps you've heard, but Xbox Live turned five last week. In celebration of this fact, Microsoft sent us a little gift, an Xbox 360 wireless controller with a nice orange finish and the words "Live Turns Five" emblazoned upon us. Nice folk that we are, we've decided to give this sucker away. But wait, there's more. Along with the controller, we received a little pamphlet detailing some of the criticisms faced by Xbox Live before it launched. Microsoft took something of a risk with Xbox Live, and it has paid off. In short, Microsoft wanted us to believe in Xbox Live, and believers we have become.

As a symbolic addition to the limited edition controller, we're also tacking on a few games that Microsoft really wanted us to believe in. Those games are: Tenchu Z, Vampire Rain, Project Sylpheed, Fuzion Frenzy 2 and Crackdown. Hey, one outta five ain't bad, right? Yes, they're not the best games in the world (minus the incredible Crackdown, of course), but think of them as free achievements. Hell, to sweeten the deal, we'll even toss in 1600 MS Points. Sound good? Follow these simple instructions to enter:
  • Xbox Live is five years old. Leave a comment on this post telling us about your best Live moments so far. You can leave one comment per calendar day (Eastern Time).
  • Be sure you only leave one comment per day. Posters of multiple comments during the same day will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, November 23 12:00pm Noon, Eastern Time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only
  • On Friday, we'll pick one winner via a random drawing
  • One winner will receive a limited edition Live Turns Five wireless Xbox 360 controller, one copy each of Tenchu Z, Vampire Rain, Project Sylpheed, Fuzion Frenzy 2, and Crackdown, and one 1600 point MS Point card, worth about $230 in all.
Don't forget you can leave one comment per day. That's three chances to enter and maximize your chance of winning. If you'd like to maximize your chances of learning, you can read the official rules by clicking here.
