I have been a member for 10 years, in fact I have been on Xbox live since the alpha beta. Been a paying member ever since. What how much money have I gave them?!?!


hmmm...for 10 yrs @ $50 ~ $60 annually, my math says around $500 ~ $600. does that seem right?

timing is suspect since it happens to also be the nintendo wii-u console launch this weekend.

for the amount of subscription money live members paid, getting avatar items seems insignificant.

if microsoft actually converted your gamerscore into microsoft points on a 1-to-1 ratio so that you could use them to purchase DLC add-ons or full games, then that be something of a real reward. otherwise, it's sloppy seconds; so no thanks.

I lolz at how people don't mind paying $60 for a game and 60 a year to play that game online lolz


I lolz at people who think other people on CAG pay full SRP for XBL Gold, let alone games.

I am genuinely curious as to how many non-stop 10-year members there are. Would love for MS to release those numbers, though i know they won't.

I really think it has to be 10K or less.

Looks like I have been around since 2005. That I think is about the time I got my 360 and sounds about right. I don't remember having it hooked up to my Xbox because I didn't have wireless and the cable would have had to run into another room.

I would say a couple hundred. There is no way MS is giving that many Xbox for free.

I had Live before I signed up here. The years only count time you had gold minus trials and I had some dead time, so still at 8.

Those of us who got the Thomson drive launch Xbox, the Duke controller and the Xenon launch Xbox 360 should get a fucking medal. They don't need to send me a new 360 but the least they could do is replace my Xenon with an HDMI unit the next time I ship it out for repairs.

You can also check how many years you have by looking at your profile. The number will be at the upper right.

I've got 7 years and they sent me the code twice. Both times was on the Xbox, not email.

That is a dumb idea. They would lose so much money. Don't fix what isn't broke. I feel bad for you that you pay full price for everything and you are on CAG

Been around since the original beta, always a gold account and received the helmet e-mail but no console. Someone posted they received a console but I haven't seen any pictures yet. Anyone up to posting any from their actual shipment?

i have 5 years on my account and my bro has 4 he got the helmet and i didnt also got over 100,000gamerscore and my xbl gold dont end till 5/16/2015 lol they should sent me something lmao jk congrats to everyone that received something



I know it's bullshit. Granted I don't played XBL or buy gold with the intention of receiving anything in return but when it comes out and is said that anyone over five year gets something I fucking want it...If I meet the requirement which in this case I do.

Been a member for 5 years and 1 month. 106,000 Gamerscore and in 2010 I had my XBL Gold taken care of until March of 2013. Since I've joined I've only been silver for maybe 2 weeks. So annoying.

Congrats to people who received the helmet and other goodies, even if you were under the five year mark. ;)

Damn, I thought I had it from the beginning. I want that xbox.

Due to loads complaints from 8-10 year members not getting their stuff, MS support is now forwarding people to their rewards support forums where all questions regarding this are conveniently not answered.

They are also warning people against selling or giving them away as apparently these are tied to the gamer tag and they will take the required action.

I doubt it too. This seems like a major fk up which is why they are not responding to posts on the forum. Some phone support guys are even hinting that they will ban people who resell their codes as they are linked to profile he the the system message.

Well someone got their console and is asking 10k for it. Nothing yet on my end.

I hope he gets every penny though, but I can't imagine someone dropping that kind of money.

He's got some snapshots of the letter enclosed with it. If there are less than 200 of these in existence, I'd bet someone will give at least $2000 for one.
