MS is giving out codes to games like Killer Instinct(you get the full version of the game as a code) via email to eligible and previous gold xbox live accounts(From what I heard). Some other xbox live members are also receiving free xbox one consoles. You probably have to be a Microsoft MVP to get a free xbox one console. No one knows the full requirements to get these free games and consoles.

I'm kinda surprised MS is doing this. At least they will benefit from this.

That's a good way to make people buy your console- give them free games on said console

I got a free code for Killer Instinct season 1 for having a gold membership since launch. (360)

Nothing like being rich. You can buy friends and make otherwise straight guys kiss each other.

I got nothing. Even though I have had gold for at least 2 years. I have around a 4k gamerscore and I am also an xbox live rewards member.

@super600: Maybe they found out you were a Gamspot mod? Maybe you should start banning all of these useless Cows? I bet that would get you some free stuff.

I got nada.

Live since year one. Gamerscore probably not high enough.

Had it for 5, 33k gamerscore, got nothin'. Quit your whining Super.

Not that fussed though since I'm not getting an Xbone for a while.

Lucky you, I haven't get the free code and I have Gold since Xbox1.

Glad you posted this. Checked my inbox and have a message from MS telling me that "They're a fan of Me for being a fan of Them." and they'll send me a code Nov. 22 for a full character unlock of KI. Now if I only cared about fighters or the X1 at launch.

I've had XBox Live since 2002 and my first achievement was december 10th 2005 and I got nothing. This must be America only

Lots of butthurt and projecting in this thread.

Happy for those that got free games. Oh by the way keep checking your inboxes apparently the giveways will continue for a while longer.

You could always pass it along to one of your fellow GSpotters. Not petitioning but I am sure someone on here would appreciate it.

Last second desperation attempt by MS to keep people from switching to PS4.

#25 Posted by shawn30 (4367 posts) -

I got mine. Been on Live since the 360 debut.

It'd be sweet if I got a free one. SO I COULD SHOOT IT WITH A GUN.

Got KI for free. Oh well, not getting Xbone for a long time (if ever) so hopefully I can sell it on eBay.

I got nothing for being a member for 8 years and I still have the 2002 beta disc but I made a new account for Halo 2 and I have 70k+ gamerscore. Microsoft just hand it out to random people so it spreads and makes them look good but it makes people like me not want to purchase the next XBox
