Major Nelson outlines Xbox One 'Road to Launch' tour
Microsoft's Larry Hryb (aka Major Nelson), Director of Programming for Xbox LIVE, has outlined plans for the Xbox One Tour prior to its launch in November. The Xbox One is already on display at various Microsoft Stores, but the Road to Launch tour will allow consumers to actually play games on the Xbox One prior to its November 22nd release. Furthermore, Major Nelson and members of the Xbox team will be each event, giving you a chance to talk directly to those responsible for the new console.
"During the Microsoft Store Opening, members of the Xbox team and I will be there to watch you play some of the amazing Xbox One games launching with Xbox One this November 22," Nelson wrote on his blog. "We’re giving YOU a sneak peek at what will be some of the great Xbox One titles including Forza 5 Motorsport and Killer Instinct. As an added bonus for Killer Instinct, you’ll have a chance to play on the classic arcade cabinet. In addition to the games and demos of the Xbox One controller, I’ll also have some giveaways during each event."
