My buddy in the US sent me this from Xbox.com US page:
Part of it:
More than 10,000 retail locations in 13 countries will open their doors at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 22 to welcome fans amidst great fanfare. Festivities will kick off in major cities around the world, starting in Auckland, NZ and continuing through
Sydney, London, New York City and Los Angeles, uniting fans who have come together to celebrate the availability of Xbox One. The celebrations will be showcased in a live broadcast airing on Spike TV, beginning at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT, also on Xbox.com and
on Xbox Live.
“Today we invite millions of Xbox fans around the world to join us for the launch of Xbox One, beginning on Nov. 21 as we count down the final hours to the launch of Xbox One,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing and Strategy. “Xbox One will be the biggest launch in the history of Xbox and we can’t wait to celebrate with our fans.”
Marquee global launch events are planned in major cities worldwide, including New York City, Los Angeles, London, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, Sao Paulo, Toronto and Sydney.
And with concerts in NY and LA, all I can say is Microsoft is doing this launch in El Grande style. WOW!
