Xbox One Launch Activities

More than 10,000 retails locations in 13 countries will open their doors at 12:01 am on November 22nd to begin selling Xbox One.  I’ll be at the New York City event, where I’ll join Geoff Keighley on Spike TV for the live broadcast celebrating the launch.

      …about your BS.

    If anyone is interested….I was in Target last night right outside the New Orleans area they had an Xbox One on display. It was outside the box, and it was in like a plastic display case. They of course don’t have it for sale yet, but I actually got to see it in person and WOW! It’s funny I was walking not in electronics, but I ran over there to look at it. It caught me. It looks so good in person. The black is beautiful. The console is a nice size. And the Kinect looks really classy and high quality. It is hard to describe, but the whole package looks classy and plain just looks good.I’m impressed.,

    • Ivanx360xpira

      good to hear, I didn´t saw one in person, but a friend of mine, that had he opportunity to see one, said the same thing, he was impressed by the build quality, everything from the box to the controllers, cables the plastic used etc..seemed to be very high quality!

      • Charles Walton III

        Yes it looks better in person than in pictures. I wasn’t excited when I first saw it in pictures, but wow it does look good.

      • bill

        I saw it at a hands on xbox one event here in Pittsburgh. It is really beautiful in person. The impulse triggers exceded what I figured them to be like. It’s hard to describe but in forza the feedbsck made me race better. It felt like I could feel every vibration from the car to the track. Amazed

    • Jason

      Eastbank or Westbank?

      • Charles Walton III

        Kenner. But I figured most people wouldn’t know where that is.

        • Jason

          Thanks. I may go stare at it for awhile.

          • Charles Walton III

            Esplanade Mall Target. I stopped in twice to look at it. HA

          • Nick Peck

            LOL. I’d love to walk into a store and see some random guy just staring into a see through plastic case. That mental pic is hilarious :p

    • Nick Peck

      My son and I got to play it last Sat @ beachwood Mall in Ohio :D It’s not as big as it looks in pics, and yes, it looks great. The feel of the new controller is fantastic and I really love the changes and it feels “that” much better.

    • Dylan

      Can a random person say “Xbox Off” and shut down the display? Does that actually work?

      • roozbeh, again

        I think it detects your lip motion so that no one else can give commands

  • Richard

    Be picking mine up at midnight courtesy of game pz cant wait! !!!!! Big thanks to tge xbox development team

  • Mitchell Hall

    Cant wait!!! I’ve got 5 games preordered for day one but I think my first game going into the console is going to have to be dead rising 3. All the things I’ve seen in the last month or so look absolutely ridonkkkulous. can’t wait to have that day one edition controller in my hands:D

    • evilfangs .

      I’m only getting 3 launch games, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and AC4, AC4 will be my first game on my new system, I’ve been waiting to play that since the beginning of November. It has been so hard to not watch AC4 videos.

      Ryse next as it will be a short game then I’ll spend hours on end in Dead Rising 3.

      • Mitchell Hall

        Omg I know ac4 looks amazing and it’s so hard not to watch spoilers! I have it preordered as well. Just the other day here in Canada futureshop held a promotion where you could trade in ANY game of current gen and get a brand new copy of ac4 battlefield 4 or cod ghosts ! It was so hard not to get ac4 for current gen lol. . But I held off and just picked up cod because I have the other ones preordered for next gen already. You know what you’re right maybe I should do ryse first because it’s probably only going to be 10 hours or so as opposed to the 30 to 50 I’m probably going to put into dead rising. Good call!!

        • evilfangs .

          I feel exactly the same. :)

          • Nick Peck

            I’m right there with you guys, it’s been killing me trying to ignore all AC4 info! Man, one more week!

          • ElektroDragon

            I already have ACIV next gen game in hand with 1 hour of bonus content. But yeah, for the MS exclusives, I’ll be there next week.

          • evilfangs .

            Congratulations, but 1hour out of a 60+ hour game doesn’t impress me :)

          • evilfangs .

            I’ve couldn’t stop myself from watching just basic naval free roam stuff. Nothing too major as it’s basically only sailing and fighting ships.

    • ElektroDragon

      No, please put something in that is actually 1080p/60 FPS so you get that next gen feel as your first game. I recommend Forza 5, or Ryse if you must even though its 900p/30. But 720p with drops to sub 20fps is not what you want your first next gen experience to be! I am getting all THREE games, but I’m sure as heck not popping DR3 in first!

      • Mitchell Hall

        Dude get a grip. . I could care less. Dead rising 3 looks like the funnest game at launch also from all the demos I’ve seen as of late, the graphics look great. I could care less if it’s 1080p or 720 upscaled to 1080. I’m interested in the experience. But yes I will be playing ryse as well. . anyone who says they can tell the difference between 720p upscaled to 1080p and native 1080p is lying or has just convinced themselves of it. I will admit there is a difference between 60 and 30 fps but that being said dead rising looks great in the newest game play I’ve seen.

  • evilfangs .

    On the 21st GAME here in the UK are allowing us to pay for our consoles then 12:01 we can just skip the line and pick up our console. Kind of a fast track system instead of waiting. I like this as I’m going to be having £600+ in my pocket, and I’m less likely to get mugged when I pre-pay for the game at normal day time then midnight.

    • Anonymous

      Ever heard of a bank card?

      • evilfangs .

        Bank likes to “steal” my money to pay my bills when they aren’t supposed to come out lol. So I don’t like to leave spare money in there.

    • beardyman3218

      I pre ordered online, no getting mugged for me…. unless it doesn’t arrive.

      • evilfangs .

        I wouldn’t trust Royal mail to get my £400+ X1 to me.

  • A. J.

    I have to work on Friday (gotta feed the kids). However, Amazon has my Day One edition prepared to arrive sometime on Friday. From there I have the whole Thanksgiving week off of work.

    “Xbox, Dead Rising”

  • ElektroDragon

    A little unrelated, but I am looking for some sort of converter or base/stand that will turn my non-flat topped original Xbox that is hardly used into a nice flat top onto which I can place my new Xbox One. Has anyone seen such a contraption from the old original Xbox days? The top of that system has no vents and didn’t get that hot and neither would be used at the same time of course. But space inside my ET is at a premium.

    For the impatient: How can I put an Xbox One on top of my Xbox Original?

    • Arcona

      find 4 bits of plastic the same size. stick blutak on each to stick em down to your xbox. then blutak on top to hold the x1 in place. or just get some wood and cut and screw together 2 side pieces a little taller than the xbox to one top piece for the x1 to sit on.

  • Jonathan Neal

    So sometime next week my Xbox one will ship from the Microsoft store early for Friday correct?

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    for those who pre-order day-one edition on MS store, when is it going to be ship ? I remember seeing that it is ship before the release date so that we get it ON the release date. I hope this still apply, i don’t want to loose any possible week-end of game time !

    • Nathanzz

      If it’s anything like my Surface Pro 2 pre-order, MS Store pre-ships them to local distribution points, then charges and officially ships them the day before launch with next day delivery for the 22nd.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        good to know. i hope it’s going to be at my front door in the morning so i can take a day off lol

  • MrRadiolips

    Corporation has trained him well! lol

  • lee

    i was just wondering for the ones who didnt get the day one edition (was in 2 minds whether to get xbox one from the start) but got standard edition when will GAME be delivering them to us? they said to me its not been confirmed… it better not be something like 2 weeks as thats a joke.
