Microsoft Gave Surprise Xbox Anniversary Gift Boxes To Random Fans
Did you get one?
As part of Xbox's ongoing 20th anniversary celebrations, Microsoft sent out surprise gift boxes to randomly selected Xbox fanfest players.
Called the Keepsake Kit, the gift came with a 20 Years of Xbox crystal--a hefty glass block engraved with the recipient's gamertag--as well as a Halo Infinite Limited Edition controller and a year-long subscription to Xbox Gamepass Ultimate.
A note accompanied the package and read, "As thank you for being a part of the 20 years of Xbox, we're gifting you this FanFest 20 Years of Xbox Keepsake Kit. This is a limited-edition kit, created for randomly selected Xbox FanFest fans to commemorate our journey from past, present, and future as an Xbox community."
I’m in total disbelief. I got an amazing package from #xboxfanfest! What a beautiful #giftfromxbox! I teared up and reminisced the days of old and ironically I’m playing Halo CE, my first xbox game. @aarongreenberg @XboxP3 @majornelson @Xbox you have a fan for life. Thank you 🥲 pic.twitter.com/3gxY7ldfkI— Chris Weaver (@chrisbweaver) November 21, 2021
Microsoft has already held quite a few events to celebrate its gaming console, like November's 20th anniversary Xbox celebration livestream and an interactive, browser-based Xbox museum. In the anniversary livestream, Microsoft announced that Halo Infinite's free multiplayer mode would release ahead of game's single-player mode and introduced a new list of over 70 Xbox games slated for backwards compatibility.
On December 13, Microsoft will also release a six-part documentary titled Power On: The Story of Xbox, available on YouTube and other platforms.
