Microsoft celebrates 10 years of Xbox with free Avatar prop

Happy birthday Xbox! You're ten years old now. Who could've imagined that you'd evolve from having the biggest controller in the world... to no controller at all?

A 10 year anniversary is quite a big deal, so how's Microsoft going to celebrate? By giving everyone a free Avatar prop. You can get a digital gift box for your virtual profile, which explodes into fireworks. It may not be a free game, or free Microsoft Points, but at least it's something, right?
