Get Hands-On with Xbox One Now at Microsoft Retail Stores

As the Chief Operating Officer of Microsoft Retail Stores, I’m excited to share that we’re giving you an advance opportunity to come in and start experiencing Xbox One. Microsoft retail stores will enable consumers to experience Xbox One gameplay all day, every day leading up to Nov. 22.  Fans will get to experience the thrill of racing and play the Xbox One exclusive title “Forza Motorsport 5.” They will also get a chance to check out improvements made to the best controllers in gaming.

We love to play and have fun with our customers and local communities and an advance preview of Xbox One is one additional way we are bringing amazing Microsoft experiences directly to you. So stop in now at any Microsoft store location in the U.S. and Canada to get hands-on time with one of the most highly anticipated gifts for this holiday season. Microsoft store associates are on hand to answer questions and make recommendations.  Major Nelson will even be around to talk about Xbox One when he visits the new stores at Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas and at Penn Square Mall in Oklahoma City when they open later this month.

With more than 75 locations across North America and an emphasis on choice, value and service, Microsoft stores are the best place to try and to buy Xbox One. Find your closest location here.

Additionally, we’re offering a great in-store promotion between now and the end of the year. Come into any Microsoft store and try Xbox One and you will be entered to win the “Forza Motorsport 5” Living Room Sweepstakes.  The winner will get a great “Forza Motorsport 5” Living Room package with a Forza Motorsport branded playseat, Polk Audio N1 Gaming SurroundBar, Thrustmaster TX Racing Wheel Ferrari 458 Italia Edition, and a $2,000 gift card to use towards completing the living room with a big screen TV.

We look forward to seeing you in a Microsoft store soon!
