You're a fan of ours and we're a fan of yours.
Thank you for your dedication to Xbox. We want to show
you our appreciation, so we're giving you:

KILLER INSTINCT

We've unlocked all characters so you can hit the ground running.

Watch your inbox on 22 November for instructions on how to claim your free gift.

Don't worry, we'll remind you.
I did! I'm not even getting an XB1 [yet!]

[edit] Just saw this on OXM:

Microsoft is handing out free copies of the complete launch edition of Killer Instinct on Xbox One to selected "dedicated" fans. We're not entirely sure why, but we've been able to confirm that the report is legitimate.

More soon.

It looks like the people on NeoGaf who have received the email have all had over 100k gamerscore, that seems to be the only connection so far. I've not had the email either, currently on 30k(ish).

Nice one for the people who get freebies, being a member for over 7 years and not getting anything is a bit annoying though

Maybe cause I only have 55,000 gamer score.

Typically I won't receive any free gifts but giving away actual consoles is insane. I guess the people they give them to deserve it, obviously supported Xbox for a long time and with a lot of money no doubt. They surely aren't throwing these out at random.

Not got any e-mails. Been on Xbox Live for 7+ years but don't have a huge gamerscore simply because I'm a multiplatform gamer so have games spread across different consoles.

Got the e-mail today about the game. Shame I probably won't be buying the console for another 2-3 years. Here's hoping I get a free console too.

133k score and been on live for about 5 years.

So does anyone know the actual requirements for this?

I've played on 360 since 2009, bought/played easily over 100+ (though admittedly i've traded most towards newer games) I had gold for 2/3 years, i have a gamerscore of over 35000

Why am i not considered special enough?

That picture of the bundle though WOW! , Admittedly i'm not buying an X1 until its been out a year at least or has a price cut, but that makes me want one

They should have done this as a competition or randomly for people that had pre orders.

The fact that they have confirmed on twitter that they are looking at tenure, gamerscore and other things when giving out these freebies is pissing off some of the really loyal members of gold.

There are people that have spent well over 1k on Xbox live, and have been members from the launch of the 360 that have had nothing, and now those people are now wondering what they've done wrong.

It was a nice thought Microsoft, but the final execution wasn't thought out very well.

It's not just launch of the 360, live was available on the original xbox.
