Microsoft has publicly detailed its plans for Gamescom next week, with the Xbox One maker promising "exciting news" from the company.
Wish I could be there.
Talk about desperate. I am still holding off on this system I have a feeling MS has sneaky stuff up their sleeves.
People who turn down free consoles are either trolling or stupid
^^^ AGREED! I'm not a fan of Xbox but if they are giving it for free, why not? use it or resell it, there's really nothing to lose! fanboyism is one thing but being stupid is totally another matter.
I wouldn't call it desperate. It's a nice gesture for the fans that will be attending. It would be funny if a fanboy won one and when they got on stage to receive it they said "Nah thanks, I won't be using that so you might as well give it to someone else."
so no time of the MS press conference yet?
It is a private media event so no conference. They will release videos during the day.
Wow is 2005 all over again with the 360 give away they did back then and now is the Xbone turn
I wish Sony would do that & I would be able to get one :3
Yes! Can't wait. Finally gets to go!
I want one
they're gonna need a few months before launch to try and fit this unweildly beast into their entertainment center. Ugh, I'm such a troll I like that they are giving free consoles away, but I'm curious as to what they will play on them. no Bc no mention of a free game, and are the One's servers even running yet?
They won't be giving them away at the event. They'll get the person's name and address and will send them one at or shortly after release.
In future news...Ebay get's 12 actual Xbox One consoles for sale...sources claim that they have no idea how that could happen when the console hasn't launched yet. J/K Actually, this is pretty good PR. Get the console into some hands and spread some good will. A free console is a free console. I couldn't see ANYBODY just saying; "Ummm...no thanks Microsoft...I'm good!" Though, that might be very funny.
I'll take any console that's free, could always sell it on Ebay if I really didn't want it.
