Cheers MS next console release we won't bother being 10% of your user base around the world!!!

Just got mine, I got a poster which I have printed and put in a frame which is hanging on the back of the door in my toilet!

Can't wait to get the backgrounds....

Bit of a let down but at least we have sunset OD for 24 hours!

I hadn't seen anything about this but was hoping for something a bit more special than a poster and gamer pics, especially for those who purchased early pre-price drop as a thank you. Do MS still think their core base is a bunch of 14 year olds who care about this sh*t!

I don't really care about what I got (same as everyone else), but you've got to wonder by people's reactions if this kind of thing ends up backfiring from a PR perspective.

MS: We're going to give you some free stuff.
Gamers: Cool, free stuff!
MS: Here, have a poster and a video.
Gamers: Double-you tee eff? Shove it up your hole MS!

Yeah, I know what you mean. To be honest, I think that the Year One Stats thing is a great idea and they should have really just done that, as opposed to getting folks hopes up with the premise of a free gift.

Naturally it leads to some folk thinking that they may get a free game or something, but then they just get a poster and a limited access to a movie.

Doesn't bother me personally but like you say, I can see how it may backfire with some folk.

Only had mine a month so I don't have any issue with not getting much, but can understand why some of the Day One people aren't happy.

I can't. I bought a brand new car once, they didn't give me a present after a year either.

Got my first email yesterday:

880 - Hours gaming on xbox one (Top 10%)
15235 - Xbox one Gamerscore (Top 1%)
737 - achievements (Top 1%)


Today I recieved all the freebies including poster and 1 year avatar/background and Halo movie etc...

Also recieved a separate email this morning telling me I'm getting free copy of 'Limbo' when it's released and my code will be arriving soon.
Happy days!! :)

I got the LIMBO message too.

Quite happy with that as I always seem to miss out on these things!

True, but did the garage email you and say "hey, thanks for buying one our cars, watch for another email and you'll get one of these great prizes.... "

Then giving you a poster of the car you bought and a chance to watch an advert for it :)

To me its a damp squib of a celebration. Its just some intern who has learnt how to use photo shop. I wasnt really expecting full retail games but a bonus Games with Gold indie would of been nice.

No, they call me and pretend to remember me, and try and sell me another one. My chippy bought a van from the same place, and the same salesman calls him each year with the same spiel:
Annoying Doug (for his name is Doug, and he's annoying): 'Hi Mark, how's the car?'
Chippy Mark (for his name is Mark, and he's a chippy): 'It's a van'
Annoying Doug: 'Well you've had it a few years now, are you thinking of replacing it soon?'

I saw the list of stuff MS were giving away, including CoD, but I can't say I'd expect to get anything like that. Just enjoy seeing the stats and stop worrying about presents. You lot are like my kids at Christmas. Well Christmas is cancelled kids, daddy's running away with Lara.

No emails for me (I must have opted out when I signed up) but just checked on my console and I have Limbo too. An unexpected surprise. Cheers MS.

I didn't buy mine in the slim chance they would be gifting out freebies a year later, i'll still buy the next one at launch too, so i don't feel too hard done by not winning anything good.. of course I would have loved to have won something decent who wouldn't?

Emigrate to US for next console release me thinks :D

Right time to give sunset overdrive a bash
