Spreading the Xbox love

Y’all know I’m a Wii gal, because I am not what you would call a serious gamer. Those serious gamers, though, assure me that Xbox is where it’s at.

So I have something Xbox-y for today’s contest, but if you don’t actually have an Xbox, yet, allow me to point out that Amazon is running a crazy Xbox special right now wherein you get 1600 free Xbox 360 Live Points (no, I don’t have any idea what those are) and $50 off with purchase. Definitely worth checking out if you’ve been considering one—they have several models from which to choose, either with or without a Kinect.

Okay! Assuming you already have an Xbox, or you’re thinking of buying one, today’s item-up-for-grabs is… a card for a 12-month gold subscription to Xbox Live. Why is this good? I have no idea, but several of my Xbox-devoted friends assure me that it really is. Okay, then.

Want to win this here gold card (which is actually green; apparently Xbox isn’t terribly literal with the colors…)? First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, May 5th, 2011 for a chance to win. I’ll choose the winner via random number generation and possibly interpretive dance (seeing as how the contest ends on Cinco de Mayo, and all).

Ready? Go!


  1. we use xbox live to watch netflix on our big tv…hope we win 🙂

  2. Really, really want to win this!

  3. I’ve never actually used our XBox, but the husband and kids like it, and they use the XBox Gold membership for…something, so hey, it would be great to win this!

  4. Oh! We are xboxers in my house!

  5. We’re an XBox family – this woud be a big score for us!

  6. I want the Kinect so badly I can taste it. Even though I barely speak video game. This would be a tool in my quest to become an xboxing family.

  7. Awesome, our current subscription is up this month! Coincidence? I think not!

  8. This would win best wife ever! Please, random integer selecter, pick me! 🙂

    Winning would solve that!

  10. My husband & son use X-Box Live to play their bang-bang games… would love to not have to pay for it for a year! LOL

I have played both consoles and love Xbox, but it sucks having to pay for Xbox live every month because i am a broke college student. buy one if you haven’t, don”t get kenect it gets old fast and dose not have a lot of titles out. it was just made to compete with Wii for the motion gaming market.
