Microsoft is Taking the Xbox One on Tour!

The fall tour season is looking like it’s going to be a big one. Today Microsoft announced it’s taking its Xbox One on the road, giving folks in select cities a chance to experience the Xbox One in advance of its release. So bring your earplugs and work out your headbanging muscles, folks. This tour is going to wail!

Google announced yesterday it’s taking Glass on tour, now Microsoft has dropped its hat in the ring. Who’s going  to be the can’t miss tour of 2013. Microsoft’s been known to put on a great show, but sometimes they suck live. Still, the fliers for this show are already spelling out a blowout!

Test Drive
Xbox One is hitting the road with four decked out Xbox One trucks. Meet us at a Test Drive stop in one of the cities below and we’ll put a controller in your hands, a game on the screen, and a spring in your step that’ll carry you through to launch.
Area One
Drop in** on one of our Area One parties to experience the new Xbox One console before it goes on sale November 22. With live music, live gameplay, and more, you and your friends can paint the town green. Be sure to bring your ID: This event is 18+ only!

That’s right rockers, this tour is 18+ only because it’s gonna’ get cray. Don’t bring your kids, this is no place for children! You know that the Xbox One will be playing all the hits like Halo 4, Destiny, Titanfall and a super shreddy version of Dead rising 3! Grab your bandanas and acid washed jeans and get ready to ROCK!

All kidding aside, this is a great move by Microsoft that’s sure to build interest in its console. After some early missteps, Microsoft seems to be coalescing around an effective marketing strategy with the Xbox One. My only issue with this tour is that it isn’t coming to Portland

What’s up with that Microsoft?
