A huge 40 foot Xbox One has just appeared near Ste-Catherine avenue downtown Montréal. It seems to be the same one previously seen in Vancouver.
Jeez MS, contributing to global warming is not going to help anyone
Actually i think thats the new NSA base.
Lol bubbles for funny
Actually that's the real console i wonder what truck will be holding the power brick though j/k j/k
giant size? looks like it's built to actual scale.
Scale 1:1 Is it actually legal to expose your xbone in public?
There must be a law about keeping $hit off the streets...
What the hell are they doing with my grandmas VHS player in Montreal. I'm calling the proper authorities, this is ridiculous... I kid.
Ezz2013, montréal has about 30 kilometers of underground stores, interconnected with subway stations. the city put everyone working there out to place the power brick.
I hope MS doesn't Ban all of Canada since the console leaked before Nov 22! Lol
I was coming to this same article just to make all of these jokes that are above :D
this comment is magnificent
given the fact that many have complained about the size of the actual X1, building a larger than life one for promotion seems....counter-intuitive Their PR department needs a head check
Rather than any sort of check, they need pink slips.
thats one big VCR, is that a retro nightclub building?
I think this is the version required to beat the PS4 :)
What about the Kinect camera? I guess you don't need it after all
It's in outer space right now next to the Hubble Telescope lol.
Guessing no one there noticed the X1 for sale in that region so MS had to drop a big turd for people to question it's existence
ms hardware engineering at its best
Derek Zoolander works for Microsoft now ?
A big heater appears to warm up everybody.
Wow... watch out Canada, you received a massive Xbone early, M$ may ban the all country
Man, that thing must weight as much a three Xbox ones.
Release the Kraken!
That line will always be cool/funny ;)
awful just plain awful
dont touch it you might get banned (joke)
You guys really have issues. If this was a giant PS4 everyone would be drooling over it and saying how awesome it is. Pathetic, really.
I agree with you i would too, Unlike the Xbone which is a huge ugly brick the PS4 is a slick piece of tech.
No not really.
we would be drooling over it cause the ps4's design is sleeker perhaps?
Or because you like your console in italics?
I actually like the design of the Xbox, my post was just a joke about the X1 running hot. However, a giant console is..well...it's retarded. To be perfectly fair it's just...doesn't appeal to me as a marketing thing. Although you're right, if it was a Sony console this site would be going mental about how awesome it is. Imo, the Ps4 and X1 are pretty poor designs. And the X1 is only as big as the Ps3 Phat, well it's as tall, it's actually alot slimmer than the Ps3. The X1 looks an old VCR, the Ps4 looks like it belongs in the 80s too.
You see... maybe you are right but the fact of the matter is... its an XB1 LOL.
Lighten up lol.
"If this was ps4" card played.
But wouldn't you?
Meh. Not really. Spectacle? PR stunts? A Bathy cares not for these things.
If it was PS4, my first thought would be "I understand the importance of advertising but I wish Sony would spend that money elsewhere." Since it's XB1, my first thought is "The money for this and the other recent XB! advertising spectacles could have been put toward stronger tech in the XB1."
(•_•) ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■) ....Deal with it.
People are just having a little fun at MS expense.
My god, you people get butthurt over the slightest things.
get a sense of humor
I don't think anybody thinks that a giant version of their console is awesome. If this was a giant PS4 I'd be wondering why they thought that was a good idea.
No. Just no. M$FT's attempt at desperate advertising is indeed pathetic.
Probably not a good idea, that things ugly as hell.
This comment section has turned into Comedy Central! Lol I take it the Kinect sensor is the next state over?
it's the whole olympic stadium http://www.usageorge.com/Wa... watching all over the city.
i want one for my backyard.
"XBox, mow lawn"
Xbox, crush neighbour's house !
You want one FOR your back yard, or AS you backyard? Gotta admit, it'd make a badass base for the kids to play in.
Don't know about you guys, but that's my new apartment.
You get to play and test the console on the inside..
You mean Giant-er. The actual XB1 is already giant.
No it isnt. Have you even seen the actual console?? Its no bigger than the POS3.
With a Xbone like that, you can expect mass surveillance from the NSA in Montreal. How the Canadian government allowed that!?
Thats not the xbone, that is it's power supply.
Are Microsoft going to ban Montreal now?
you are really evil thanks to you my body is full of bruises because every time i read your comments i keep fell of my chair laughing
I enjoy your comments haha
Can't tell, is it connected to network?..
Microsoft not doing the Xbox One any favors with this one.
I guess Montreal needs to prepare for rolling blackouts!
