(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – With the release of the PS4 tomorrow and Xbox One next week, November is definitely an exciting month for gamers.
As usual, Microsoft is going above and beyond on its advertising, especially for the release of the new console. According to a post from Xbox’s blog, the Xbox team is planning “one of the biggest entertainment premiers of the year.”
Xbox’s invitation shares exciting details about the hours leading up to its release. The celebrations will launch in the one and only, city that never sleeps. In Times Square in New York City, the Best Buy Theater will come to life as “zombies, Roman soldiers and supercars converge” to bring fans games and plenty of entertainment.
The main event of the night is a special performance by award winning, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The first 1,000 fans that purchase either an Xbox One or Xbox One game will have access to the concert.
If you don’t live anywhere near New York, don’t worry, Microsoft is throwing an equally epic celebration in Los Angeles. Milk Studios “will be transformed into a gamer haven, with gameplay stations for Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, and other Xbox One game titles”, states the invitation.
The headliner for the evening is set to be Deadmau5, with entrance for the first 500 people who purchase either an Xbox One or Xbox One game.
More than 10,000 retailers will open its doors at 12:01 a.m. for the official release of the console. Stores hosting midnight events include Best Buy, Sam’s Club, EB Games, and GameStop, to just name a few.
