Glad to finally get the HBO Go app, but what is that arrow in the upper left? How do I get rid of that?

I got an email with a gift box in it. It included a Personalized Year one poster (not all that exciting looking), year one background, gamer picture, Halo 4: Forward Until dawn HD free rental. Dragon Ball Z Sample pack, and Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods.
Sadly no games. Then again I probably would have them already anyways.

I just checked my Xbox email after the last few posts. I got the same thing as you.
WHich doesn't seem like much to me. With the background posters you have to download it and install it on the XBOne with a USB drive. No thanks. Although I might watch Forward Unto Dawn. Although I think I watched it at some point in the past. Heck I may have even purchased it if it was available on BD. I guess I need to check.

The message about the game comes on your console itself not in the e-mail. I got a message on my console saying I would get some game I have never heard of when it's released.

I received the email with the poster, rentals, etc... As well as Limbo when it comes out. The Limbo message was in my messages on the Xbox as other people are saying. It's pretty sweet that MS is doing things like this to appreciate their fans.

It's available to view for subs of either Netflix or Hulu Plus.

I got the same backgrounds, gamerpic and video package. Ho hum. Someone gets a sports car.

Strange the messages are showing up on the consoles too. I guess I'll just double check both places.

You can switch any time you want actually by visiting the lady who sells outfit items. Gender is under "Body Type".




Also, with all this talk in the thread lately about messages from Live and such, it kind of makes me think that there should be an option on the Xbox to blink the console and Kinect's light (similar to what the system does when shutting down) when you get certain types of notifications. I mean, the console is already on even when it's in standby, how much more power could that possibly use? The Wii did something like this with its disc slot, but that light was far too bright. The light on the Kinect and Xbox One glow just subtly enough that this would be useful.

Is there anything new about the X1 limbo? It didn't seem like a game that would really benefit from more power.

I would never notice it if the console light blinked or the Kinect light blinked since I am never looking at them. The only way I might notice is from an on screen prompt. And even then I'm still most likely to miss it.

I suppose it might be cool to be anti-small studio games, but seeing as how Limbo was pretty fun...I will go ahead and hang with the uncool kids.

I wonder if they are using any other criteria to give out these codes. I didn't get anything for Limbo or Ryse, but I haven't bought many games or subscribed to XBL for very many months.

I was just playing Ducktails on the 360 and thinking I'd really like to find some good platformer games to play.

There it is. If your not a Gold subscriber than you won't benefit from promotions, giveaways and discounts. In addition to just having one Gold account for anyone logging into your One enjoy the features.

I see they sent me the Limbo code on Sunday. I just saw the message now. AT least they make it easy to redeem the code on the XBOne so that you don't need to manually enter the code. I have no idea what the Limbo game is, but as long as it's free I have no complaints.

EDIT: Is Limbo that game they previewed a long time ago? I remember seeing some previews of it and it looked interesting the way it was presented.

I see the Limbo game was sent free to anyone that played the XBOne during launch weekend last year.

Well not exacty, I bought a 3 month card when I got my Sunset Overdrive bundle November 2nd and activated it that day, but prior to that it was at least 6 months since I'd had an active subscription and hadn't bought a game in a year or so.

I wondered if they were basing the giveaways on who used their consoles the most/who was the most profitable, which makes sense.

Nah, I've been Gold status for 12 years and have barely used my XB1 this year, because PS4. I got the Limbo code.

Side note: I got Sunset Overdrive day one, and now I'm playing a friend's Mordor XB1 disk -- I've finally become quite smitten with the console.

Same here. Original beta tester for Live and been a Gold member ever since. I've hardly played this year as I had twins shortly after the Xbox One came out and I got the Limbo code too.
