    Microsoft's Xbox Live service is turning 10 soon, and the company plans to celebrate it by gifting some of its most loyal members with a special edition Xbox 360 console, which features a refreshing new color scheme, and "A decade of entertainment" logo printed on its sides. There's no clarity on what one has to do to be able to receive one of these, but we'd imagine only the most loyal Xbox Live members, probably with active memberships dating back years, get the console. A Kotaku reader was surprised to find one of these packages at his doorstep. He never ordered it, never entered a giveaway, and isn't affiliated with the gaming industry. If you've been a long enough active member of the service which started in October 2002, there's finally reason your subscription billing address could come handy.

    I kinda like the look of this model. It's cool that Microsoft are doing this but I doubt a lot of people will get one. Most people I know had a PS2 and it wasn't until the 360 that they moved sides and even then, only the most hardcore hard Live with the original Xbox.

    Did Live launch with the Xbox or after? I've read there was a beta for it so I'm not sure.

    Yeah, Xbox Live launched on the original Xbox with Unreal Championship/Mechassault, but it wasn't really popular until Return To Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War was released. It then really took off with the launch of Halo 2, and the rest is history.
    DaveK says thanks.
