Bungie helps out gamer that got screwed over by Microsoft's repair center

Last week, HawtyMcBloggy brought word of Nathaniel's one of a kind Xbox 360 that was adorned with signatures and artwork by industry people. The 360 unfortunately broke down so Nathaniel sent the system in making sure that Microsoft would take proper care of the system so the art and signatures stayed in tact. As we all know, that didn't happen and the 360 was sent back fixed but with all the art and signatures "cleaned" off.

Bungie got word of this and they have sent Nathaniel some of the greatest swag ever. The best of the swag Bungie sent to Nathaniel was easily the Legendary helmet signed by practically the entire Bungie staff and two signed Halo 3 soundtracks by Marty O’Donnel. Nathaniel also received:

  • Bungie Jacket
  • Bungie T-Shirt
  • Halo 3 Messenger Bag
  • Two Halo 3 Limited Edition Wireless Controllers (one covenant, one human)
  • Halo 3 Faceplate and Skins for Xbox 360
  • Four McFarlane Action Figures (MC, EVA Spartan, Brute Chieftan, Jackal Sniper)
  • Halo Actionclix Preview pack (Target exclusive sticker on the front)
  • Halo Actionclix Game Pack 4
  • Halo 3 Wall Graffix
  • Halo 3: Ghosts of Onyx Novel
  • Halo Graphic Novel
  • Halo 3 Wristband
  • Halo 3 Hackeysack

Check out HawtyMcBloggy for more pictures of the swag and a statement from Nathaniel thanking everyone for the help. Hawty also mentions that Microsoft is still trying to figure out what they can do to make it up to Nathaniel. I'm really glad to see some good come out of this whole situation.

This just goes to show how much love Bungie has for their community. Eh, Bungie, they're pretty cool guys ... except when they're trying to make fun of us. Also, Halo 3 Hackeysack! TOTALLY RADICAL!
