12 Days of Christmas Xbox Giveaway!

IT'S ALL OVER! Winners have been/are being notified. Thanks to all who entered!

UPDATE: And we're done! Thanks to everyone who entered and thanks to Microsoft for providing so many amazing prizes. We have notified 11 out of 12 winners as of Wednesday 22nd December and will be speaking to yesterday's victor this morning. Congratulations if you won and watch out for more massive giveaways on this scale in the future!

ORIGINAL POST: Good news! You may not realise this, because they've been trying to keep it on the down-low in every single thing you look at everywhere, but it's Christmas soon!

You may not realise this either, but according to our research Christmas is a time of both giving and receiving, rather than just receiving.

Now you are forearmed with this knowledge, we are delighted to introduce our 12 Days of Christmas Xbox Giveaway, where we're giving away a festive bundle of Xbox stuff that gets bigger every working day. We started on Tuesday 6th, the day of the new Xbox 360 dashboard, and will run until Wednesday 21st December.

To be clear, every day you are welcome to answer the puzzling question we shall pose for you and submit your answer to put yourself in with a chance of winning that day's prizes and all the previous days' prizes.

So if you win for this coming Friday you don't just get the XBLA Triple Pack - you also win the prizes for Tuesday (a Live subscription), Wednesday (4200 Microsoft Points) and Thursday (a Bluetooth Xbox Live headset).

The only exception will be days 10, 11 and 12, where the big prize is a console - on those days you win the console and all the prizes from days 1-9.

Got it? Got it. At the end of the 12 days we'll go through the entries and notify those of you who have won, post your usernames up here and get Microsoft to send your prizes out as soon as possible.

Simple! And loosely festive! So get your answers in, and check back each day to find out what else you could win...

  • Day 2 - 4200 Microsoft Points and a 1-year Xbox Live subscription
