So, we have some very exiting news!
We have a confirmation of the true numbers of those 2 amazing Xbox systems the Mountain Dew and the Hulk Xbox! Not much is known, but we did some research, and also heard the story from the owners. everything matches perfectly!
Lets get started!:
The Mountain Dew Limited Edition Xbox was only available through a Mountain Dew sweepstakes requiring loyal Dew-drinking Xbox fans to amass 550 points in order to "buy" the Limited Edition Xbox. The sweepstakes spanned 5 months – from April to August 2004. Production was limited to 5000 units. Within 1 day all systems were reserved
And then... Back in 2003.. PepsiCo had an promotion to give away with there Mountain Dew drink, that they where on sale in stores for 99 cents in the US
Every can or bottle you could buy you had a chance of owning one of of the 99 Mountain edition Xbox systems that was made by Pepsi.
The Xbox was put in a normal box and came with a normal black s controller.
so the number of units giveaway is 5099.
Pepsi was done giving away the Mountain Dew units, and even had a 36 systems left! They didn`t know what to do, until the movie The Hulk was going to be released in cinemas in June that same year!
Pepsi was contacting Ciniplex in UK right before the Hulk movie came out. there were 17 Ciniplex cenimas in the country and in each one you could win 1 unit by ordering a Popcorn and a Pepsi. With each order You would get a card. on that card where you could put your name/address/etc on it. you put that card in a large bowl near the system where was displayed to participate, and the winner would be pulled out.
The Xbox systems where given away in a normal classic black box and a normal black s controller
While 17 where given out in Ciniplex, the other where to the US to have a contest there, we are still invesigating which contest it was.
Units give away: 17 in Europe, 17 in North America!
