A sweet thank you from Microsoft when buying a console
Tis the season of goodwill and Microsoft want to make something personal to you, something that is just for you and no one else. If you purchase an Xbox One console from the Microsoft store, you will get your gamertag laser printed on the battery cover for no extra charge – click here to go to the store and to save you having to look elsewhere.
The offer isn’t on just yet and there’s no mention of a start date, it might be worth holding on for just a bit longer if you can. The site states:
Coming soon – Exclusive to Microsoft Store
Buy an Xbox One console and get a battery hatch with your GamerTag laser printed on, at no extra cost! #myxboxcontroller
So no more arguments about who the controller belongs to anymore, also how cool is it to have a personalised controller. Has anyone else had this pop into their head too, a rather famous (but slightly changed) phrase from ‘Full Metal Jacket’:
This is my controller. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My controller is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my controller is useless. Without my controller, I am useless. I must use my controller true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me.
Does the appeal of getting your gamertag on your controller reach out to you, are you hoping this becomes available as a purchasable item and if it does – will you buy one? Let me know in the comments.
