Yay for Microsoft! For the win! =D
I’m not gushing just because of my affiliation with the company. Really. I was a Microsoft fan way before joining the Xbox team. Ask anyone!
Well, okay, ask the Goonfather. Cos I doubt anyone else really bothers to know that I’ve been using only Microsoft mice and keyboards since I was old enough to buy my own mice and keyboard (but dad pays… wahahaha) and, of course, I love Windows, and Microsoft Office, and my Xbox 360, etc.
Is that too much gushing?
Okay. I’ll stop. (Not really.)
The reason I’m writing this blog today is to bring you an all-important announcement from Microsoft, HTC and StarHub.
Ooooh all the big names!
It’s an all-important announcement because *jeng jeng jeng* Microsoft is giving away an Xbox 360 Arcade every week till April 30!!
Yes. Yes! It’s very exciting!
Of course there’s a catch. There’s always a catch, duh. But it’s a very appealing catch, nevertheless.
You’ll need to go to the nearest StarHub store to buy either a HTC HD2 or a HTC Touch2. When you do that, you will receive two things!
- Two free pre-loaded hit games: Guitar Hero 5 and Diner Dash: Flo on the Go. (Only available till April 30.)
- A chance to win an Xbox 360 Arcade. (One awarded every week!)
After you buy either of the phones, go to this page and register for the lucky draw.
This is a pretty great deal, if I may say so. I would buy the phones if only just for the two free games! But, more importantly, being able to win an Xbox would be just awesome.
Sometimes, I have to literally fight with the Goonfather for the Xbox. He would be, like, “GO BUY ANOTHER XBOX LAH! I NEED TO PLAY BAYONETTA NOW.”
Most of the time, I give in to him because he’s such a poor thing, having to go to the office to work every day, while I can work from home and slack off to play games if I feel like it.
But, you know, just sometimes (and if you’re a gamer you would understand), you MUST play a certain game NOW and you just cannot wait! Right??
Anyway, keep this Microsoft-HTC-StarHub promotion in mind. It’s ongoing till April 30, 2010. I’ll be back with more updates on, like, winners and things.
Here’s a closer look at the phones.
I might try to persuade the organisers to give me one of these with the two games so I can play them and write you some reviews.
One must always have hope, right? ;)
