Microsoft giving Xbox One owners free gifts for first year anniversary
This is what you get...

Microsoft will give away a selection of freebies to anyone who bought an Xbox One during its first year on sale.

Specifically that means anyone who bought an Xbox One between 22nd November 2013 and 11th November 2014, and has logged at least 10 hours of usage.

Everyone will get a Year One gamer picture, new Xbox One backgrounds and a Year One image for use as your desktop, Microsoft mouthpiece Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb explained in a new blog post.

You'll also get a free rental of live action Halo 4 mini-series Forward Unto Dawn.

US owners will additionally get a rental of the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods movie and various Dragon Ball Z TV episodes.

But that's not all - selected fans will randomly receive an extra gift, picked from the list below. The highlights include 12 months of Xbox Live and various console bundles - but there's no word on how many will be given away.

Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle
Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle
One month membership for Xbox One-exclusive EA Access service
Tiger Shark cash card for Grand Theft Auto V, worth $200,000 in-game GTA Online dollars

Grand Theft Auto V gift pack with the Los Santos Sheriff Trucker cap, Michael, Franklin and Trevor Posters, and a Grand Theft Auto V sticker pack
Xbox Live Gold 12-month membership digital code
Killer Instinct Season 1 Combo Breaker Pack, the retail version of Killer Instinct Xbox One's first season and includes all eight season one characters: Jago, Sabrewulf, Glacius, Thunder, Sadira, Orchid, and Spinal. Also includes Fulgore DLC character.
Special limited edition Nissan 370Z, featuring a custom Casio livery for Forza Horizon 2
Air Vehicle shortcut for Battlefield 4 for immediate access to all available unlocks for helicopters and jets available in the main Battlefield 4 game
Arno's French Rapier for Assassin's Creed Unity to improve your combat skills

Epic Quest Table in Pinball FX2
Dance Central Spotlight (full game token)
Project Spark Premium - 15 days: Grants 2x gain of Spark XP, credits, and champion XP, as well as the ability to purchase new token-only content for earned in-game credits

Over the past 12 months, Xbox One owners have unlocked more than 11 billion Gamerscore, Microsoft said. Users have also spent more than 2 billion hours playing Xbox One games.

I suppose the free stuff isn't really all that mind-blowing, but the chance at those random gifts may balance it out if you're fortunate enough. Good luck folks!

Only had a quick play around with the new update, I did check my Another World stats and told Dave that i'd only played for 3 hours instead of 4, he wasn't impressed.   ;D

Something about that floating menu feels like a flashback to the PS3 interface, which I'm not so fond of...
