The full anniversary prize list can be found a few pages back. Console bundles were the major highlight if I remember correctly.

Saturday, November 22, marks the official one year anniversary of Xbox One. It’s been an unbelievable year, but we never would have gotten to this point without our incredible fans. We want to thank you for being a part of an amazing 12 months by celebrating with you all weekend long.

First, if you’re in one of our original 13 markets and have opted in to receive Xbox Marketing emails*, you’ll receive a personalized email detailing what you’ve accomplished since Xbox One launched last November.

But that’s not all! To show our appreciation for your loyal and continued support for Xbox One, we’ll have several gifts available for our fans, celebrating one year on Xbox One. Beginning Friday, everyone** will get:

  • A Year One Gamer Picture
  • New Xbox One backgrounds: A special Year One background as well as an exclusive Day One background for those who unlocked the Day One achievement

The proof is in the frame by frame "instant" access option.

Instant access to any scene of any HBO series ever in high quality with no delay = instant wow factor.


This is coming from someone who despises streaming (any digital only distribution option) and its historical quality, fragmentation, and ultimate price fixing scheme.
I was switching back and forth from cable HBO to hbogo. It really looks exceptional. Can anyone find out the bandwidth for one episode of GoT? That's a way to know. Also, I wish the hbogo app had better looking CC. Looks funky to me.
