Xbox Live celebrates its 5-year anniversary, aww!

XBL FiveNext Thursday, November 15, 2007, will herald the fifth anniversary of Xbox Live’s launch. To kick off the gala celebration, Microsoft posted up several events and shin-digs that eager Xbox Live gamers can participate in. The events are detailed below:

1. Play and Win: Just play a game sometime on November 15th and you may be eligible to get some free gifts, including five first place VIP accessory kits, five second place Xbox 360 HD DVD players or five third place Xbox 360 Wireless racing wheels.

2. Frag Doll Friday: Game with the infamous Frag Dolls and get your butt whipped by a female! On November 16th, the ladies will play Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. This appears to be a weekly ordeal.

3. Xbox All-Nighter: Play and relive Return to Castle Wolfenstein in its awesome glory! The all-nighter begins November 17th at dusk till November 18th at dawn.

4. Family Game Night: Enjoy some family games every Tuesday!

Want to relive some history? During E3 2002, Microsoft gave the official announcement of Xbox Live and a $2 billion commitment to the new system. Remember a time when Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Brute Force, NFL Fever 2003 and Unreal Championship weren’t even released yet; that’s May 2002.
