It's a rockin' Bonnaroo Play & Win!

Of course, you'll have to register here first or download the exclusive Bonnaroo Play & Win gamer picture off the XBLM, but you already knew that.

H3 Legendary Play & Win and downloads too

As we continue our April 15th Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack news bonanza, we thought it'd be nice of us to inform you about a few other Legendary promotional goodies. Like free downloads. If you can spot a Legendary Map Pack banner on the XBLM, click it and you'll be treated to a free dashboard theme-o-greatness. If gamer pictures are more your thing, you can grab the super hawt Legendary gamer picture (previewed above) via the XBLM as well. That gamer picture plays two rolls and will also enter you into the special Play & Win sweepstakes that begins April 25th where, if you win, you can walk away with arm-loads of Halo 3 swag. Start downloading and get registered, because it's (unofficially) Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack day!

Play & Win with your good pal Rambo

If you didn't know, there's a new Rambo movie coming out this Friday in the U.S. (no, we are not kidding) and in celebration of the Rambo fun there's a new Xbox Live Play & Win kicking off tomorrow. From January 25th through the 28th you'll have a chance to play games and win the goods over Xbox Live. But, there's some bad news. The game you'll have to play to be entered into the giveaway is ... gulp ... Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. We know, we know, that totally puts a damper on the Play & Win fun, but look on the bright side of things. There's hundreds of prizes to be won. Oh crap, there's actually only one prize to win. What the hell? We guess they're only giving away one grand prize that includes the Rambo box set, a Rambo military jacket and (get this) assorted Rambo tattoos, postcards, coasters, and stencils. Hmm, on second thought, maybe Kane & Lynch gaming and this Play & Win stuff isn't worth the hassle. That is unless you have a thing for Rambo stencils.

Join Sniper School with Halo 3 and Play & Win [update]

Update: Oops, we sort of mis-read the prize payouts. Each day you play you get an entry into the giveaway, but no daily prizes will be awarded. Instead, there will only be one drawing that will award 1,251 winners. Our odds and excitement just decreased.

In an effort to give back to the Halo 3 community and recruit soldiers promote Army awareness, the US Army and Microsoft have partnered to give out all kinds of goods in their latest Halo 3 Sniper School Play & Win giveaway (which looks to be open to US residents only). Starting right now, you can make your way to and register your gamertag to prepare for the week long Sniper School fun which kicks off on January 19th and runs through 25th. Every day you play Halo 3 matchmaking, you'll be entered into the drawing where they'll be giving away one limited edition Halo 3 Giclee Print print as well as 1,250 800 Microsoft point redemption codes totaling over 8,750 exactly 1,251 individual winners. But remember, you have to register first and play Halo 3 daily from the 19th through the 25th to win.

While you're waiting for the Play & Win party to begin, may be entice you with a free Sniper School theme and gamer picture set download? Yeah, we thought so.
