and now the secret how I won.

I saved up codes from 11 pm last night will 10 am this morning. and then I enterned them all through the hour in the draw.


Do not just enter one code in a draw. Also I won the xbox with FREE Code. I only bought 2 2L pepsi's on monday.
There are atleast 2000 entries in each draw. so you better do atlreast 10... Good Luck

Well I think that makes 3 winners of a 360 so far. Me, PS2Hawk, and I can't remember the other person. I won the Mountain Dew Contest a couple a weeks ago:


Congratulations you are the winner of the 09/22 - 12:00 Xbox 360 sweepstakes brought to you by Mountain Dew.
You will receive your Xbox 360 before it’s available in-stores and will need to provide a signature when it’s delivered. The Xbox 360 is being released later this year in 2005, once the delivery date is confirmed we will post it in your account history so please check back periodically.

In the meantime, during the next few weeks be on the look out for a Party in the Box package from Mountain Dew and Xbox, which includes Hats, T-Shirts, coupons, invitations and more.

Congratulations and Thank you for participating in the Every 10 minutes sweepstakes

Don’t forget you can still use your codes for Collect to Get Gear.

Note: If you would like to change your address, please call 1-877-370-2582 and refer to the number below.

I believe that means November 19th. And its widely assumed that we will recieve the premium pack. I'm getting Madden '06 with mine.

BTW congrats!!

and now the secret how I won.

I saved up codes from 11 pm last night will 10 am this morning. and then I enterned them all through the hour in the draw.

You realize that a 1/2000 chance of winning done 10 times is the same odds as 10/2000, right?

The funniest thing is that you get the system a WHOLE HOUR EARLIER than the official release. You get 60 minutes to brag to your friends!

I have been tossing a PIN in now and then, but even if I did win, the system would be on Ebay before I even had it in my hands.

that's awesome. i've been drinking tons of mountain dew for the past few weeks (more than usual) so i can get more codes. by the way, poopnes, how many codes did you enter and did you lump them all into one drawing, or spread them out?

It took 56 codes to win, 2 per drawing. The stakes are even higher now, so I'd say 4 per drawing. I definetly would recommend spreading them out, but I would just hate to loose a bunch of codes in just "one" try.

Mr.FoodMonster
10-07-2005, 11:44 PM
I just threw something like 4X on a bunch of different times, mainly on sunday. 4 codes a time. Two people from Dexter have already won, and thats just insanity. There are so little people here, it really shows how many of these damned things they are just handing out.

If indeed you get it before launch day you should head over to Gamestop or your equivalent game store and see what sort of trade-in cash they would give you. Just for a good laugh since they wouldn't know what to do. Then sell it on Ebay for double the retail price like everyone else will.

Oh yea, I've thought about doing that. Have to brag a little I guess. But I need to see if they have any games in prelaunch, because I don't think one will be enough.

I've seriously thought about selling it on eBay, but I think I'll hold on to it for a while. It might loose some value, but I'll have some fun, and its all pure profit so...

If you read the contest rules we're supposed to recieve the 360 on the Saturday before retail release, so November 19th. A whole 3 days. Woot.

Well just get ur hands on one for now, I know the harddrive for 100 us is a ripoff but as long as you can get one and don't care about the backward compatibility its all good. I know when I get mine I will most likely be playing HALO 2 again on 360, since I am getting this feeling that perfect Dark Zero might not be that great.

It's funny how Microsoft/Pepsi will get all of the money back ten-fold through this contest. I could see myself buying the system for the amount of money I'd spend on pop alone trying to win. Unless I had the chance to win with only buying a few bottles. :)

It's good for everyone involved. I'm usually a Coke drinker, but for this month, I've been drinking Pepsi. Also, I have had very little interest in the 360, but if it's free, I'll give it a go. Who knows, now that I'm paying attention to the 360, maybe I'll buy one someday... if I don't win, that is.

You should go post that on CAG and watch everyone go crazy. Let them post about 50 messages going "WHY DIDN"T IT GET MINES!!!!1!!1?" and then tell them you won the Canadian contest. That would rock.

Its pretty late in the game, but yesterday I came across the motherload for free MD codes. I found a full recycling DUMPSTER full of nothing but plastic soda bottles, some with the caps, some without. When I found it, I didn't dig too much (eww), but I grabbed ten bottles off the top, and nine of the codes worked! I know where I'm dropping by today! First the dumpster, then the bathroom to wash my hands! Again, EWW.

This better be worth the effort. LOL

First, I find a 2600 secret agent proto, then this! I forgot to check my account history page and found out that I won the system on 10/10 at 1230!!!! I am pretty excited to win one, because of my recent job lull, I was not able to even remotely think about buying one. Anyone in the area is welcome to come over and game with me once I have it. I am sure I asked for NFS, since I am not a madden fan. I will make sure to give the system some love on launch day!

i am excited,i just would love to know when it will get here and if i is the core package,which is my guess.

Well again I've heard lots of things, but I honestly believe we will recieve the premium package with the HD. The estimate retail price for the package is $580, which includes the PIAB.

that would just be awesome,i am hoping your right.

still waiting on the party pack thing too.

People have started recieving their PIAB. I think they're staggering sending them out though. But its a good sign that at least they have started to finally ship them.

Still all speculation. But official rules say overnight delivery for receipt on Saturday. But there are rumors that are saying they'll start sending them out Monday or Tuesday ground, but I doubt it. Just keep checking the account history because the little confirmation card said the tracking info would be posted there...

I would say saturday. I got my PIAB this last Wednesday. I got a package with all XL shirts. I felt motivated to giving them out, so I gave three to neighbors, one to my boss, and kept two for myself. I am very excited to be getting one this next week!

Don't forget that PS2hawk won the Canadian contest...no one from the Every10Minutes contest has recieved anything but the PIAB.

First impressions: The next gen is really here...at least in terms of graphics. I've heard that you wont get the full experience unless you have an HDTV...BULL SH*T. The Live 2006 demo and Kameo prove that wrong. I have my 360 hooked up through composite and its damn beautiful. The arcade games are great...and the free trials are a blessing for poor folk like me. I only wish I had an online game to play. O well. Might buy Gauntlet and play some multiplayer, but I doubt anyone's playing it--everyone's probably too busy playing Perfect Dark 0.

PS// No its not worth $400, but its certainly a blast. Especially when it's free.[/img]

PS2// Xbox live works great if I hook my cable modem directly to the 360. But I still can't get a working network. Argh.

PS3// We recieved Kameo today, but the little card inside the package states we'll recieve our original stated game (either being Madden or Need for Speed) within 2 weeks.

PS4// I can't figure out the pics. I don't care. Maybe charter will come back up and I can post them regularly.

Well I got mine today at 9:00 AM sharp. I work at a game store, so I got to borrow Perfect Dark and mine too came with Kameo as a bonus game :). It was pretty awsome. I could get mine to go online with Perfect Dark but not Halo 2(even after downloading the bonus maps. on my 360. The xbox tech said that I would not be able to play Halo 2 online till launch day. Hopefully all the bugs get worked out. I can say that Perfect Dark is no Halo. THE GAME IS SLOW AS HELL. Pretty Graphics, ok gameplay, but overall I am going to have to play more to fully evaluate it. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE DEMOS, ARCADE GAMES, AND EXTRA STUFF YOU can download. Geometry Wars is the shit. I like that you can earn credit to buy stuff. I would buy gauntlet for 5.00 to play online with others. The graphics are sharp and not soft like the Xbox. Overall the system is pretty good and alot better in person. Is is worth $400? No, I too would wait. There are going to be alot of good games for the system, but there isnt a killer app for it...yet.

Here is a pic of my system

some things to say:

turning on the system with the controller is really awesome,and maybe i am just lazy but i have been waiting to do that.

the headset feels a little weird on my head,but i am getting use to it.

perfect dark is good,but it is a little slow.and no jump button will take getting use to.

when i play on live there is an echo on like,everything.pretty annoying.

the system gets HOTT.like,really warm.

the power source is fucking huge,it even has it's own light.jesus.

the graphics are nice and like everyone said,it is cool to have for free but it is not really worth the $400.

that is day 1

Nobody's online to play Gauntlet. Man, I paid a good $6.25 for those 500 "points" to buy Gauntlet and I haven't seen anyone online. Sucks.

The 360 does get hot.. There's actually a warning at the end of the english part of the instruction booklet that says if the 360 gets too hot it will shut down and the ring of light will flash red until its cool enough to start playing again. Mines been on for about 12 hours though and no problem.

Currently I have my 360 standing verticaly because I don't have the space for it.

Played through the beginning of Kameo three times now, showing it off to friends. At first I didn't like it, but now its grown on me.

Hexic HD (free game on the HD) is fun and most importantly it was free.

One of the coolest things I think is the ability to play your own music during any game. I know certain Xbox games let you do this, but all you have to do now is bring up the guide and select your music and it will play. Nice. Made playing the 50min Hexic survival mode more enjoyable.

Again I'll mention my HD is showing 13GB... which irks me to no end. I really wonder what's up with that. MS needs to explain this one.

The controller...is...well...meh, for me at least. Its not terrible, but I still prefer my Logitech Cordless for the PS2. But turning the console on and off with the controller. Absolutely awesome. Its just a little thing, but it definately adds to the coolness factor.

The included remote is cool and nice for people who will use the 360 for their DVD player, ie me. Totally out of hookups on the TV and plugs on the power strip.

The 360 honestly is a nice machine. Here's hoping that the games live up to expectation.

I just got done with my late night round 2 of gaming online with the thing...

Halo 2 now is functional online... and it looks amazing X_x

The upped 720p does make a difference. I was impressed. I cannot wait to play other xbox games on my 360

The xbox arcade is a cool idea. I hope to see more games and stuff.

I played more of Perfect Dark and cannot wait to play others. Quake 4 and Call of Duty are probably better.

Being able to download trailers and demos is going to be awsome. I cannot wait to see more.

I don't think you have to download anything, I believe that would be against their intentions of plug and play. I do know that the 360 can not play protected AAC (that's what they're called aren't they?) files. Non DRMed files are cool though.

And as a heads up it will not read ATRAC3 files from my NETMD walkman. I knew it probably wouldn't, but I just had to try. The NETMD showed PC-->MD on the display though.

I stand corrected on the iPod support.

Goto:

Xbox Live Marketplace

All games tab

Optional iPod support

Could they have made that any easier?

The more and more I play Kameo the more I'm beginning to love it. This is a fun game. I didn't like the controls at first, but I'm quite comfortable with it now.
