Did you know that Microsoft’s Xbox Live service turns five years old next week? It’s true. Before you know it the little scamp will be skipping off to school, making new friends, going through awkward changes and then slowly growing resentful of us until he goes to college.
But before all that happens, Microsoft has big birthday plans for their kid. No clowns or balloons, but they do have a nice little suite of activities as part of the loLIVE is 5IVE celebration. Most events take place November 15, on the official birthday, like Game with Fame. Game developers from Skate, Gears of War and Halo Wars among others will be posting up gamertags to play and chat with the Live community. On top of that, having your gamertag registered and playing any game on Live on November 15 will qualify you for prizes like Xbox accessories, Microsoft currency, and so on.
