The world’s most powerful gaming console, Xbox One X will be launching on November 7. As an Xbox fan, it couldn’t get any sweet if you could actually get hands on the Xbox One, in person, before the launch event.
In this regard, Microsoft Store is giving fans a chance to check out the new console on 4K displays at participating store locations, including flagship Microsoft Stores in New York and Sydney as well as Microsoft Store at Bellevue Square Mall and Microsoft Store at University Village.
Fans will be greeted with the launch of Forza Motorsport 7 gameplay and prizes, special appearances and more. Microsoft is also planning to expand the special event to more locations in the coming weeks, prior to launch.
Xbox fans are also invited to join Microsoft Store locations in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to celebrate the launch of Xbox One X, where there will be giveaways and more.
