Something tells me that the following combination:

1) Hetz spiked up on Mountain Dew

2) Hetz on the release day of the XBox 360...

3) ... receiving a free XBox 360 which he won from drinking too much Mountain Dew

will result in the below illustration:

Congratulations Hetz!

Now if you'll excuse me, it's time to mount up & go out for a case of Mountain Dew (and/or Pepsi). My first 2 entries haven't paid off...

The good news, as I hate Mountain Dew, is that it also works with Pepsi.  I think I'm going to start drinking Pepsi for a while.

I think it is only on 20 oz. and 1 Liter items, although Target and another company is supposed to have specially marked 12 and 24 packs sometime within this timeframe as well.

Awesome. That means you'll only have to spend $100 on release (I'm guessing that they're only giving away the core system so you'll want the hard drive).  I've only put one entry in, but now i'm going to have to go and load up.

It's actually the $399 version of the system. I called them up and asked about it. Everyone is getting the Premium Pack. I guess there are going to be hardly any Core systems at all this winter.

As for why I didn't take Oblivion...well they wouldn't let me. I had to choose between Madden 06 and Need for Speed.

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but according to an e-mail I got today, I won $2,000,000 in the South African lottery.  I also found out that I am the next of kin of an engineer in Iran, and will be inheriting over $5,000,000!  It must be my lucky day slywink

Thanks for the congrats everyone! smile

I am still in shock that I actually won this thing and will have the Xbox 360 the weekend before the official launch!

Here is hoping that retailers start selling games before the launch date like they have with most of the other recent system launches...but if not, at least I will have Madden 06 to keep me happy until launch day.
