Tis the season...........

The fine folks over at Xbox Live, Xbox.com/Live (http://www.xbox.com/live) , are giving back to XBL members and promoting the Live service by team up with Xbox Addict.com to bring you "The Great Xbox Live Holiday Giveaway".

XBA already has the BIG ASS GIVEAWAY in progress. That doesn't matter, The Guru is crazy and is taking this on too. This was suppose to take place nightly through December 27th.

The Guru, aka Josh-XBA, say no way he will work Christmas and has decided to make it a weekly deal, every Monday Night!


Ok, here's the deal:

6 Titles, 10 Copies Each. One night a week.

11/17 - Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge
11/24 - Top Spin
12/1 - Rainbow Six 3
12/8 - Project Gotham Racing 2
12/15 - XIII
12/22 - Counter-Strike

10 PM EST in the XBA Chat Lounge.

No requirements to win, just be a member on XBA and be in the chat at 10 PM EST. There will be a mix of trivia and random drawings. This has nothing to do with the BAG (BIG ASS GIVEAWAY) so if you win XBL Giveaway, you can still partake in the BAG. If you have won in BAG, you can partake in the XBL Giveaway. They have nothing to do with each other so if you haven't won in either one, you can still win. If you have won in either, you can't win in the giveaway you have already won in. Got it?

Damn. I mean...DAMN! . How do oyu get all this stuff? Josh, I know your secret. I've seen you steal the entire inventory of EB at *cough* at 4 in the monin. I know what you're up to! Haha, jk.

Will it be trivia, random, or both? Hopefully, I'll win something in the BAG and in the...um...XBL giveaway, so I can coordinate which games I've won and stuff. But. I probably won't. O well. What ever, you guys are teh r0x0rz.

Cuba is the exact location though. You wanted the town/city but didn't specify at first.

Anyhow, I won't argue over something that is over and done with.
