Microsoft is Giving Away Gold XBox 360 Consoles in Hong Kong

288w ago - Microsoft is giving away Gold XBox 360 consoles to residents of Hong Kong. To be in with a chance of winning, they have to buy a new XBox 360 between now and February 15th.

After purchasing the system, gamers are expected to write a [Register or Login to view links] essay and explain why they love the XBox 360.

To quote: Gold, but not solid gold Xbox 360s. These consoles still play Resident Evil 5, but you can't buy one on eBay yet. Microsoft is giving these away as prizes for a Lunar New Year promotion.

To get a chance at winning one you have to buy a brand new Xbox 360 with a 60GB hard drive or an Xbox 360 Elite between January 15 to February 15 . Sorry, Xbox 360 Arcade purchasers Microsoft only wants big spenders in this contest.

After that you need to write an essay and explain why you love your Xbox. Oh, and this is the most important part, you have to live in Hong Kong. It's the only region I've seen Microsoft offer this contest in, which means whoever wins a gold Xbox 360 will have a real collector's item in their hands.
