Found this here (http://www.xengamers.com/sections/news/7937/) . At first I thought it would be some cheesy cracker-jack prize looking thing, but it looks pretty good. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of these.

A consortium of 11 videogame retail chains in Japan known as the Game Retail Agency have announced plans for a promotional campaign supporting Microsoft's Xbox. Whenever consumers purchase an Xbox game through a participating retailer, they can enter for a chance to win one of 500 limited edition Xbox watches. Reportedly, the promotion will last July 13 through September 1, with winners selected at random and notified by mail. Below are pictures of the watch and associated advertisements promoting the campaign.

LOL. I was wondering when someone would mention that. I could have done without that pic myself, but since it was on the site where I found the article, I included it. I still would like one of those watches though.

Think about it, this is Japan we're talking about, can we say Sumo? But, um...yeah, the gym sounds kinda good after that.

Wait a bit and they will wind up on ebay along with your
childhood toys and your mothers used underwear.
