A little while back there was a promotion on the Xbox 360 console where you could get a cool Windows Phone 7 prop for your Xbox Live Avatar. I don’t know about you, but I was pretty jealous since I don’t even own an Xbox and wasn’t able to get a special Windows Phone prop. Well, today I noticed on twitter that the Microsoft Games Studio’s PlayXBLA Twitter account was giving away codes to a new Avatar prop. This one is celebrating the release of Microsoft’s first original Xbox Live game for Windows Phone 7 called Beards and Beaks. The prop starts off looking like just a little Windows Phone that you’re avatar will throw around, but then a 3D “Beak” character jumps out and grabs a crystal. Then a little “Beard” gnome comes out too and chases the “Beak” around.
To see if you can get a code for the free Beards & Beaks Windows Phone avatar prop, follow PlayXBLA on twitter and mention them when you see a post about how to get one. They might make you earn it by drawing a picture or something though.
