In the spirit of the holiday season, Xbox releases a countdown of goodies every day for the last 14 days of 2009.
On the first day (14th), there was a 2010-themed glasses for your Avatar,
On the second day (13th), there was a special 50% discount on Worms2: Armageddon XBLA game
On the third day (12th) now, there is a free Dashboard theme for download.
Unfortunately, these goodies only last for one day and if you miss it, they’re totally gone.
Looks like i’m going to miss the goodies from 23-26 Dec because I will be away in Hong Kong. Even if I mark the goodies to be downloaded to my Xbox360 console via Xbox.com, my console had to be switched on manually, and I can’t guarantee that there will be someone at home to help me switch it on/off.
Xbox should keep them accessible until the last day of 2009.
The Premium theme is free and looks great, but it’s not really a Premium theme as understood for the Marketplace. As you may know, a Premium theme is one that changes the look of your home screen as well as that of your friends list. As you can see from the screenshots below, this theme does not.
