Microsoft Uses Xbox One Armored Trucks To Transport the Consoles to the Launch Event

Looks like Microsoft is using every precaution to transport the precious boxes full of Xboxes (yes, that’s a pun) to the launch event in New York, and of course they’re not giving up the chance to provide a good show. (Xbox One)

its not for people stealing those xbox Ones,
its to prevent them for getting their money back after purchase

@SonyWarrior, coming from someone with your name, a comment like that isn't surprising... However, that was still f***ing hilarious. I think even Xbox guys won't be able to deny that.

lool its a bit extra, I think its for show rather thn actually needing to protect the X1's

Of course it's a PR move. Video game consoles aren't moved in armored trucks. It's just for attention.

Really tips? Is that what's going on here? Give your head a shake dude. We all know it's a PR thing. It's all in fun.

Megaton launch event.

Awesome? I find it stupid and rather pathetic. MS really need a change up in the marketing department or whoever makes this shit up. It seems so shallow.
Nujabes_  +   553d ago
It caught people's attention, that's the goal with marketing. It worked.

The wrong kind for me (and I'm sure many others). It's a far cry from the more grounded approach Sony have been taken which ALL CAN RELATE TO! No one would feel cheated by being treated right, meanwhile MS think we're all idiots.

It is neat, i just cannot BELIEVE how much money they spend on advertising, it is just unbelievable the stuff they do.

Everyone was ooing ahing about the launch day box looking sexy but the regular Xbox One box is really really generic looking.
Eddie20101  +   553d ago
The joker going to run a bus into the building and steal them all.

Jokers say nah, it's not worth the effort.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   553d ago
No No, it's actually pretty over exaggerated. They aren't gold bars, they are just video game consoles.

Xbox is all flash, no pizzazz
ThanatosDMC  +   553d ago
It'll be sad if they dont sell out. How much $$$$$ did they use just for transport?
805Junior805  +   553d ago
That's to much. They should be giving them away.

Wow, the hate in here is ridiculous.
Console launches don't happen very often (probably every decade now). Of course they're going to do something flashy to build some excitement for a once in a decade event.
sak500  +   553d ago
The sony sheep dont' realize it as they are here only to give negativity for any MS related articles. They dont' even have any consoles so just pretend they are gamers.
CrimsonDragon90  +   553d ago
Sure Microsoft, the Xbone is the most wanted console of all time, that armored trucks are required to transport it.
Serjikal_Strike  +   553d ago
Remember :there's a "demand" for the Xbox One :-/
