Midnight Launch for the Xbox One

Thu, 11/21/2013 - 05:40 -- RLWaterman

The long wait is over! Microsoft’s Xbox One will launch at midnight across the globe in 13 countries, with launch parties prepared for many major cities, and customers already queuing to be the first to get their hands on the next generation console. Full details on what to expect at Microsoft’s launch parties haven’t been revealed in their entirety, but we’re expecting celebrity appearances, including performances from Deadmau5 and rapper Macklemore in Los Angeles and New York respectively, hordes of rampaging zombies, Roman soldiers, supercars and more.

Microsoft might not have had the easiest road to launch with the Xbox One, but they’re certainly making up for it with such a dramatic launch. Will it be enough to catch up to Sony’s PlayStation 4 which sold more than one million units on its US release day of November the 15th? Only time will tell. More than 10,000 stores will open their doors around the world at midnight tonight so we're certainly expecting to see a sales surge.

Will you be joining Microsoft at a launch event at midnight in your time zone? Are you already queuing up for your Xbox One? Or did you preorder it months ago? Let us know in the comments below!
