During the Xbox One count down launch event Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb announced a partnership with McDonalds for a new contest that will let you win a free Xbox One.
Microsoft Partners with McDonald's to Let you Win Free Xbox One Units....................And loose weight..God you idiots why don't you get that what we want are extensive looks at the games we buy the console for? TitanFall ring a bell?
I thought they were all about the new fitness app o_0
remember when MS mocked Sony for doing the same thing with Taco Bell?
Advise for all you young kids who want to play for a long time. You better start reading food labels and checking what you put inside your mouth
I'll gladly take Mc Donald's over Taco Bell just throwing that out there. Either way good move by Microsoft ;)
They are. Step 1: Buy a McDonalds... many times Step 2: Eventually win an Xbox One (after the 100th McDonalds) Step 3: Buy fitness/dance games for Xbox One See... they are... as long as they get some sort of money...
If you can't sell them, make promotions to give them for free.
Order one up with a side of Doritos and MtDew, can you get any more 'Murica than that? :D
did any see how many fat people that is waiting for xbone on spiketv
I did! At 14th St Union Square in NYC. They had people from Gamestop at 42st Times Square giving out some papers for a chance to win an Xbox One at the 14th St store. They even had a shuttle bus to bring people here. They gave away 20 units. There was more people waiting for a free system than those waiting to buy and with pre-orders. Hiphopgamer was there, one of his friends was a winner. I think they are giving away more systems than what they are actually selling. Gotta show some big "sells numbers" to thise shareholders one way or another lol Reporting from 14th St Union Square NYC to N4G, Insomnia_84. lol
And Sony partnered with Taco Bell. Moral of the story, both company's fail.
Taco Bell = Mcdonald's, Mountain Dew, Doritos. Nice case of false equivalence.
@Mighty All I can do is laugh at you. Actually, fighting over who has worse sponsors?
It has begun. Going to start seeing those ads on xbl.
Mc Xbone Happy meal
Do they speak English at McDonalds anymore?
First a ps4 taco. Now a x1 mc double?
After Greenberg poked fun at Sony for their promotion, no less. https://twitter.com/aarongr...
This killed me http://i.imgur.com/a8jMwAA.... yes thats from the actual show not a commercial. So far this show has been about Mcdonalds,Music and a Achievement whore i havent seen them show even a second of gameplay. Thats one way to introduce your videogame console to the world. That chick just did a have you seen Titanfall to Deadmau5. This show is good for all the bad its showing.
I like how every single Mclogo is painfully positioned directly at the screen lol. God i hate product placement advertising.It's always so cringe inducing.
Theres a .GIF of that up on GAF.. It is cringeworthy. MS is whoring this console out to everything. Next thing you know, there will be a dog bone, named the Xbone.
Maybe I was expecting more because of the Sony launch event but to be honest Xbox launch event is whack. It's cool they are partnering with McDonalds but show some games. Buy the 30 minute mark in the Playstation launch we had Uncharted reveal and Infamous footage.
Speaking of games I see 3 Heavyweight 1st Party AAA games at launch which all don't look boring. Unlike the PS4 Launch that only game out with 1 AAA pretty good game KZ-SF and the other mediocre of 5.0/10 average rating Knack. Bring the dislikes & Bubble my comment as Trolling. I'm just telling the truth.
damn you mad bro? i dont see many great reviews coming from your end either Forzas about it. The man said nothing about the console or games, he only said that Sony had already shown some goods by this time in their launch event...geez some people are strait ridiculous.
Yeah Lowsnamebrand, I have no idea what he's talking about lol.
Keep blowing that money xbox division, no wonder why they want to shut you down.
No thanks. McDonald's food gross.
The funny thing, here in Europe McDonalds is actually good, but they use much better ingredients.
I like Hardees. Their beef taste real.
Anybody won a free PS4 from Taco Bell?
Microsoft + McDonald's hahaha
First Taco Bell and Mc D's..... gamers going to get fat.
I'm sure as hell not, I don't eat fast food. Im also vegetarian so eating McDonalds or Taco Bell is definitely out of the question.
Checkers >>>> Your favorite fast food restaurant.
Nothing beats In N' Out
That's what I tell my girl.
Anyone notice McDonalds mascot is a DoDo bird? Great species to represent your company. Dodo birds have always been considered one of the most unintelligent birds. They are lemmings following one another even to their death off a cliff. IT IS EXTINCT!
Sony partnered with Taco Bell and Microsoft with McDonald's. I have no words...
I loved the Mcdonalds on the pedestal at the Midnight launch! Highlight of the show!
I really wish game companies would stop partnerships and cross promotions with junk/fast food distributors. The United States, UK, Australia, Canada, and Mexico all lead the world in obesity rates. Why does the video game industry insist upon crawling into bed with companies like Doritos, Coke, Pepsi, Taco Bell, and McDonalds which do nothing but add to the overall problem? It's bordering on unethical and immoral. Yes, you can argue these companies don't force you to eat their foods, but as of right now populations are uneducated to alternatives, lead inactive lifestyles, and don't know any better. Combine this with the near criminal level the fast food companies can misrepresent their products, and we have issues. Just disappoints me all around.
Because the alternative is expensive.
After Major Nelson befriended Boogie2988 with a free XBone, Microsoft is capitalizing on all of his super fat followers that he converted. They'll figure what's better while getting fatter, of also having a chance of getting something for free?
Buy a Xboner now...Boom! It's a McRib. The End. Go sleep, you're fat.
Eat ten Big Macs in under fifteen minutes... GO!
Its gross when companies do this, both sony and microsoft, promoting eating this tripe!
Chicken wrap when grilled isn't that bad honestly and they have side salads for a dollar that are only 20 calories. Not totally unhealthy
Would love to see these companies promote good health for a change. Like maybe Vitamin Water, or just plain Vitamins.
Thinking about a company promoting on vitamins just makes me laugh. I would not a Vitamin water promotion.
not *mind* a
I dont eat fast food anymore mostly because greasey foods taste dont taste good to me anymore but also because I am on a school campus and it is not worth a walk/bus ride to the fast food places I dont mind having Taco Bell and Arbys. Also MS is not promoting bad health just their product at the most popular fast food restaurant. They are not telling you to get McDonalds but instead telling people that eat McDonalds that a new big console is out. I highly doubt MCdonalds payed them to advertise Xbone.
