Microsoft is giving some of its long-standing Xbox Live members a limited edition Xbox 360, free of charge, in celebration of the online service's ten year anniversary.

Increased sales figures!
Every little helps...
I remember the days when I played Rainbow 6 Live Demo when Xbox live first came out, I'm just annoyed I didn't migrate my old xbox live account when it moved to the 360 :(
How much would 10 years of Live (Gold) cost - more than the free XBOX ?
