One year ago today saw the launch of the Xbox One. In celebreation, Microsoft is offering some freebies to early-adopters, and sharing some statistics.
Over the last 365 days, players have earned over 11 billion Gamerscore from Achievements, and spent more than 2 billion communal hours playing the console. Forza Motorsport 5’s Welcome to Forza Motorsport Achievement, Titanfall’s Build Yourself Achievement, Destiny’s Ship Rite Achievement, and Call of Duty: Ghosts’ Spatial Awareness Achievement. Players should also be receiving a personalized e-mail detailing their own gaming statistics, if they opted in to that short of thing.
Freebies include a Year One Gamer Picture, new Xbox One backgrounds, a free rental of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, a free rental of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods, and a sampler pack of Dragon Ball Z TV episodes. There's also the chance to win free games and premium content, which you can find out more about on Major Nelson's blog.

This is a pretty cool way to recognize an otherwise innocuous anniversary. I am especially excited about the chance to see Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods for free.
