    I think I will join in with everyone else and point out that the link to the Terms and Conditions does not work.

    • roozbeh, again

      replace en-US with en-GB in the url. worked for me

      • Alexander Higginbottom

        Thank you.

        • roozbeh, again

          happy to help

  • Patrick Desrochers

    DigitalBites: seconded

  • sonic10158

    Since the terms and conditions page doesn’t exist, does that mean there are no rules/limits to what the video can have in it?

    • oDemiurge

      There’s no Rules!

  • roozbeh, again

    guys i found a fix the link issue.
    on the url replace en-US with en-GB

  • http://www.talenthouse.com/lukeb Luke Batt

    Well… that sucks:

    For the purposes hereof, “Territory” shall mean: USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, excluding Quebec Australia, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland.

    … excluding… Australia… New Zealand

    • roozbeh, again

      USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, excluding Quebec Australia, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland.

      that meant all of canada except quebec not Australia or new zealand being excluded

  • http://www.talenthouse.com/lukeb Luke Batt

    Well… that sucks:

    *From the Terms & Conditions

    For the purposes hereof, “Territory” shall mean: USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, excluding Quebec Australia, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland.

    … excluding… Australia… New Zealand

    • http://www.talenthouse.com/lukeb Luke Batt

      It’s hard to tell as the wording is kinda weird, but Australia, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland could be part of the competition… need clarification on this :/

      • BlinkFandango

        Um, it doesn’t make sense to list a bunch of countries that are excluded, it is obviously listing the countries that are included. Common sense should be enough clarification.

    • William Montgomery

      I think it should ready Canada (excluding Quebec) & then the list continues with countries that are part of the “Territory”. It is bad sentence structure.

  • LarZen

    So all the countries you see as not important to launch the XBO this year cant even be a part of this contest?

    You sure know how to make people feel left out!

    • roozbeh, again

      what are you talking about? the sentence was worded badly but obviously meant all of canada was part of the program except quebec, australia and new zealand are part of the program

      • LarZen

        What about the countries that are not getting a XBO at launch, and that are not eligible to this contest.

        Countries like Belgium,Denmark,Norway,Sweden,Finland,Russia and Switzerland.

        • roozbeh, again

          sorry i misunderstood the question, sadly it seems they are not part of the program

          • LarZen

            Np, Im just getting out some steam…no XBO this Christmas and now this…kinda bummed out here to be honest :(

          • roozbeh, again

            hopefully the program will expand by 2014

    • William Montgomery

      Most other countries have contest & gambling laws that prevent true worldwide deals like this. That’s not XB’s fault.

      • LarZen

        Aye that could be the case, but kinda bummed out anyways about it… :(

        • William Montgomery

          I know. I usually see that type of thing in online contests. I’m befuddled as to the purpose of those laws.

  • http://www.Youtube.com/TwTheRedDragon THE RED DRAGON

    Are you giving us permission then to rip gameplay footage from Microsoft trailers?

  • roozbeh, again

    so billyG’s kids cant be part of this it seems.
    :D

  • William Montgomery

    I’ll give it a shot. Nothing for me to lose.

    • roozbeh, again

      nice mentality. ‘thumbs up’

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        depending on the video quality, dignity is something you could loose :O) Good luck William !

  • roozbeh, again

    ‘If Switzerland and/or Austria belong to the Territory listed above, governmental officials of said countries are not eligible’

    why is that?

  • Simon Turner

    well I really hate to say it, i am disappointed at tonight’s live gamescon stream, no big exclusives (battle field 4 exclusive aeroplane) that was about it, project spark crashed on start up, this is just fuel for the anti ms, day 1 should have been live stream with the fifa announcements and what not, along with a release date. and no crackdown 3. nevertheless I cant wait for release date im gonna book a week of and smash it./

    • mightywombat

      Why would they have two pressers for reveals during one convention? It was meant as a walkthrough of what’s being shown off during Gamescom, don’t really know why you expected more from it.

    • Does Not Equal

      You can still enter the program.

    • roozbeh, again

      there is a topic for that you know.

    • beardyman3218

      I thought gamescom was excellent, lots of good news about xbox one and where games are headed, project spark didnt crash on start up i watched the whole show and there was plenty of info on kinect and exclusive content and early content. Not to mention i get fifa for free. fable anniversary looked great and fable legends sounds interesting.

  • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

    Fixed the link to the terms. Sorry about that.

    • KamiKaze RgX

      what countrys can participate, in the tos its not specified or i dont dind them

      • Luke

        “For the purposes hereof, “Territory” shall mean: USA, United Kingdom,
        France, Germany, Canada, excluding Quebec Australia, Spain, Italy, New
        Zealand, Austria and Ireland.”

        Bugger, I’d of loved to have participated. Not sure why Aussies and Kiwis are excluded…

        • roozbeh, again

          Australia and New Zealand are not excluded. the sentence has been badly written but let phrase it better for you.
          canada(excluding quebec), Australia,new zealand.

          • https://www.facebook.com/xswqaz KamiKaze RgX

            u_u im from mexico and whant to try

    • beardyman3218

      You were rocking that gold jacket major nelson.

  • Andy Santana

    are we allow to talk others languages than english??

    • shinji

      “If your video contains voiceover or text in any language other than
      English, you must include an English translation of such content in the
      email you submit for English speaking judges.”
      From the T&C

      • Andy Santana

        ok thank you!

    • Dennis Crosby

      im sure you will be able to because they want the community to be the promoter of the xbox one and the games

  • ungeheier

    What is this, I dont even.

    • roozbeh, again

      you like talk yoda.

  • shinji

    I might dive in on this. Have not been playing much though.

  • Andy Santana

    can we do a video about the console ? And not games??

  • Andy Santana

    Do we have to film ou faces or we can just put some gameplay footage with voice over?

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      read the damn rules, it’s all explain.

  • Hugo Andrade

    One question!
    Only this countries are allowed to participate ?
    -> USA, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Austria and Ireland.

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      you have to minus down Quebec out of Canada as usual

      • Cold Heat

        I thought you wanted to leave Canada anyways?

  • GFYantiapplezealots

    It would be nice if I knew what the Upload Outreach Program even was.

    • Sledg

      lol, I’m trying to figure out the same. So many open questions about what they want to see in the video.

    • Dylan

      It’s gotta be about the new twitch features in the Xbox One.

    • evilfangs .

      It’s Microsoft taking peoples uploads of video games to promote the game.

      • beardyman3218

        Its an app on every xbox one that uses the dvr feature and allows you to make short clips, everyone gets their own channel similar to you tube, you can also use kinect to record your own commentary, if the best of gamescom link is still on the dashboard you can watch it on there, they also showed kinect and i gotta say kinect 2 looks amazing, the technology behind it is really mind boggling.

        • roozbeh, again

          it sounds like you want to enter this program. interested huh?

          • beardyman3218

            Maybe :)

    • Does Not Equal

      If only you had access to the internet so you could search for information about it.

      • GFYantiapplezealots

        I did you moron. And at the time there wasn’t a single result on Google.

        • Does Not Equal

          If you’re lucky, maybe the Major will add a link in the above entry that explains it. Maybe call it “contest details or see Terms and Conditions” or something.

        • Nate Welles

          Don’t worry. ‘Does not equal’ thinks he’s funny and smart. He’s just a toolbag.

          • roozbeh, again

            i agree he can be a major tool sometimes but he is kinda right about this specific argument.
            dislike like away DNE, i dont give a damn

    • ebonyglock

      You see the link that says “contest details”? Yeah, click that.

  • Anderson

    Pode ser em qualquer idioma o vídeo Major?

    • m1nh0ca

      Cara… certamente, ele não tem ideia do que você escreveu.

      Man… I’m sure he doesn’t have an idea about what you’ve written.

      • roozbeh, again

        he probably will use google translate

      • Anderson

        Exato, se ele compreender ou ao mesmo traduzir, já será um grande avanço para mim que melhora a comunição. E será mais fácil de participar da promoção também.

        Exactly, if he understand or translate the same, it will be a major breakthrough for me which improves communication. And it will be easier to participate in the promotion too.

  • Nic727

    How to record Xbox One game?

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      voice over trailer or filming you watching a trailer or E3 video

    • beardyman3218

      You need a capture device, hauppage pvr is a good one as is elgato and you need a mic if you want to add commentary.

  • Ricardo Rico

    No Mexico T__T

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    thanks again for ignoring out Quebec out of Canada like we were in another damn planet. You ask people to not discriminate other people in a contest you discriminate a whole bunch of people. We are part of Canada which you accept. If you want to accept a country, accept it entirely and not partly just because you are to lazy to deal with the law.

    • Landsharkk

      Are you sure the problem isn’t with Quebec government instead? Maybe find out which law is in place that prevents Quebec from being a part of this program before you point fingers in the wrong direction.

      Much like how many contests in the U.S. are not available in all 50 states, certain state laws sometimes prohibit certain aspects of the contest.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        i wish it was that, but it’s quite simple to do contest in Quebec and Microsoft i’ve done plenty of contest in Quebec and they know exactly what they need to do. Unlike other country or province, our regulation ask that the prize is held by a thid party to ensure that the contest winner receive is prize. In quebec, the lotto, if the prize is 30 million, someone have to put the money somewhere on hold by person in law. Same apply with material, they have to offer the money equivalent to the price in garantee. There is nothing complicated and we have a lot of contest from everywhere all year long.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        @cold heat

        i won a kinect 1.0 from Microsoft, so no, there is no problem doing contest for Microsoft in Quebec. Do you think doing contest is free for all party everywhere on the globe. Every country, state, province have their own set of law and everyone of them need to be respected.

      • sibtrag

        Simple search gives us some information about why Quebec is not included. A few things that could be problematic:

        Requirement to screen all advertising for the contest with Quebec officials in advance of the contest.

        A tax of 3-10 % on all prizes to be awarded.

        Litigation about disputes must take place in Quebec.

        And, if Microsoft doesn’t have a legal presence in Quebec, they would have to pay a security deposit to the province to ensure that the prizes are eventually awarded.

    • Luis Antunes

      I´m with you. I live in Uruguay, xbox live is 10 years old, and still no support here.
      I have to use a USA account to have access to all the stuff.

    • BostonSup

      The problem is actually Quebec. The government tries very hard to pretend it is its own country that corporations (and people) tend to ignore the extra, redundant work involved to be part of Quebec.

      Count yourself lucky that companies, including game publishers, print new boxes with English and French text. if they only did the English text, it wouldn’t be allowed to be sold in Quebec. Those game cases are so cluttered because of it.

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    And they bare ask people to not discriminate other…

  • Morris ヅ

    good stuff

  • Chris Grub

    It has to do with the lottery license laws in Quebec.

    • Pierre Luc Dufour

      yes but its just 2 paper to fill and translate in french thats all lotto quebec wants…

      • Chris Grub

        Call your MP/MPP and let them know. I’m sure this isn’t the first time you’ve run into this.

  • hiruu

    It’s cool I guess…but was kinda hoping to know when I would be able to pick-up my XB1…:-(

  • AlkaWeSt

    wep major nelson, well I understand you not announce the release date of the Xbox one in Cologne ..

    then the announcement will be to?

    • roozbeh, again

      probably PAX
      im gonna be there when it happens

  • roozbeh, again

    goodbye steve, its been nice knowing you.

  • beardyman3218

    Steve Ballmer is going to quit microsoft within the next 12 months due to a strategic shift, apparently stock went up 8%, things are really changing up at ms lately. maybe for the better.

    • roozbeh, again

      vote for me people. i will make sure microsoft dominates again

    • roozbeh, again

      holly cr*p, that photo is a perfect fit for your name

      • beardyman3218

        I thought it would be fitting, good old brian blessed.

  • roozbeh, again

    upvote if you are happy that baldy um i mean ballmer is out.

    • Dylan

      Hopefully they get someone with vision like Peter Moore (who basically built the Xbox brand into the powerhouse it was).
      Or an insightful, passionate person like Mark Cerny.
      Someone who know’s what they’re doing.

      • roozbeh, again

        you know there is more about microsoft than just gaming right?

        • Dylan

          Sure but I was assuming we were talking about Xbox division.

          Either way, Ballmer has had a ton of misfires.
          Surface, Vista, Windows Phone, Zune, Windows 8, Broadband Networking, KIN.

          Windows 7 is great. Everything else has bombed.

          • roozbeh, again

            xbox 360?

          • Dylan

            I’ll give Peter Moore and J Allard the credit for that one.

            No coincidence that after 2007 (the best year for the 360) when Mattrick took over, the device started to lose it’s momentum.

          • roozbeh, again

            okay but it was still during ballmer’s reign.
            im happy he is leaving but you gotta give him credit for alot of things

          • Dylan

            Your original comment got deleted haha.

          • roozbeh, again

            what? it’s still there

          • Dylan

            Refresh your page. Says it’s deleted.

          • roozbeh, again

            ballmer is watching me isnt he?

          • Dylan

            He’s always watching.

      • ElektroDragon

        Get real. Peter Moore was a shoe salesman. Just some marketing hack. Now Mark Cerny, that’s someone who knows what they’re doing.

        • Dylan

          Yep, I know you have your beef with him.

          You a J Allard fan then?

          • ElektroDragon

            J is my god. *kneels* The second coming of VelocityGirl is at hand!

          • roozbeh, again

            well you’re passionate man to say the least

  • ElektroDragon

    More like they will be uploading their CEO out of reach. Ha! Amirite? Come on, that was little bit funny, right?

    No? OK. I had to try.

    • roozbeh, again

      That kinda sucked.

  • Grayson

    Can you use music from the game you are talking about as backround music while you are talking

  • roozbeh, again

    GT6 isnt coming to the ps4

  • Mariusz Gromada

    Well, it’s just for gentility, not for the rest of the world, as usually.
