Joystiq Giving Away Microsoft E3 Freebies

Update: Bitmob’s Dan Hsu will be giving away his Xbox 360 Slim to the Bitmob community soon.  Check out Hsu’s Twitter feed for details (thanks Pete).

Original Story:If you happened to catch Microsoft’s E3 press conference you may have heard that Microsoft was giving away the new Xbox 360 slim away to journalists that attended the event. Thankfully sites like Joystiq – if they are allowed to – will not be keeping many of these new systems. Instead, according to this post, they will give away as many of these system as they can "as soon as they can."

While this is great for fans that enjoy free things (who doesn’t?) it is also great for journalism and shows that, while readers may not always agree with Joystiq’s reporting methods, they at least have the integrity that journalists should have. As for the fellow who stood up and cheered when Microsoft said it would be giving attendees of the press event a free Xbox 360 slim: you should be embarrassed.

Check out Joystiq to see fresh shots of the new Xbox 360, on sale in stores today.
