This! Im glad theyre saying they'll give it out to long time subscribers but in reality its probably more likely 10 year employees. Who else would have been onboard with live from day 1? This will go great with Larry's Surface that he mentioned on twitter. Which also was prob given to him free by MS. :drool:


I bought it day 1, but only had dial-up so I couldn't play it :(

do you have to be 10years to get the helmet


No. I've been a member since January 2004 (8 years) and I got the helmet code.

Hi Folks,

I was part of the original beta (which was 500 people I believe). When I log into my Microsoft account I even have the transaction from 8/26/2002 for 16 months of Xbox Live. My year 10 rolled over on my account around that date (well before today), so I guess I'd be the best "bench test" to see if everyone's getting one of these or not. At this point, I've gotten no emails about this, nor has something shown up at my door. I'll try to keep everyone posted if I do get one in the mail. My account has been Gold and kept current for the entire 10 years.

I'm surprised this hasn't turned into a thread full of people complaining that they're entitled to an Xbox. Let's call MS and ask for a manager until we get what we deserve!!!!!

I've had the same GT since 11/24/06 and the last time I was Gold (mid-August) I'm pretty sure my tenure number was 5. But I'm currently Silver and haven't been Gold the entire 6 years.

I hope I at least get a helmet. :)

Finally got around to checking my join date on the account look up thing. Guess I am only 9 years joined 11/2003. I never got a XBL gold until later as I was helplessly addicted to SOCOM on PS2. Wikipedia says it came out August 27, 2002...

Some of us are showing our age in here lol.

Any way of telling how long you have had an account on live? I'm sure I wont get the 360 however it would be nice as I think I'm about to have my second rrod. I know I have enough time for the avatar helmet, but I'm not sure on the number of years I have with live. I have read that some received an e-mail telling them along with the code however I just received two messages on live. Both of them had a different code and nothing saying how long I have been a member.

this ->


It can kind of be a pain in the ass but here goes....

Go to xbox.com
Click on my account on the top right
Then go to billing history on the bottom left
Then subscriptions
On the left hand side click on whatever your current gold is (1 month, 1 year etc...)
Then click on view history and scroll on down

Sometimes the history wont load but just keep trying

Purchase Date:
01/01/2004

Some of you 5 year + guys (who have nit received your helmet) should contact support chat ASAP and have them resend/send you the email. My nephew had the same problem with his 10 year account and is being sent a code by them in 48 hours.

Log into xbox.com on the web and look for a support or contact us link at tge bottom of the page. You need to select Support Chat (Not Ambassador chat) and it takes 30-40 minutes to vonnect with them.

I would link you but I am on Tapatalk.

I lolz at people that think most of us pay full retail for XBL. I haven't paid full retail in probably eight years. Most years I get my XBL for $35 or $30. Past couple of months I've been paying even less
