Microsoft giving away Xbox 10th anniversary avatar item

As many of you probably already know from the copious amounts of images on your Dashboard, Xbox has turned 10 this week, and there's been all sorts of information and items being released (Halo Anniversary edition for one, review coming soon); but for those who actually take care of the cosmetic appearance of your avatar, there's something for you.

Wander on over here to grab yourself an "Xbox Anniversary Prop" free-of-charge. The item is basically a gift box that you open with exploding fireworks....that's it.  Might not exactly be the coolest item in the world; but hey, at least you don't have to pay for it unlike the rest of the drivel you can purchase for your avatar nowadays.  Add a little prop-induced spice to your avatar this week!

Editorial: Kinect comes to Halo Anniversary. Has motion control gone too far?
