Drink a soda, win a free Xbox | CNET

Microsoft will give away as many as 9,222 Xbox 360 game consoles in a bid to whet appetites for the first new version of the gadget in five years.

Microsoft launched the "Every 10 Minutes" promotion on Monday with Mountain Dew, promising to deliver the new Xbox consoles to winners before the gadgets hit stores for the holidays. Participants will have a chance to enter drawings every 10 minutes for the next nine weeks, the company said.

To enter, players must enter a unique code printed under caps of Mountain Dew, Pepsi and Sierra Mist bottles into an online account at Participants can choose which drawings they enter. In addition to the next-generation game console, winners will also get to select a free video game--either "Madden NFL 06" or "Need for Speed Most Wanted." The estimated value of the prizes is $580.
