As next-gen console release dates draw near, the competitive race between Microsoft and Sony heats up. Microsoft took a major hit with the whole ‘pay to play used games’ and ‘always online requirement’ shenanigans, so it’s decided to take a page out of politics (and practically every artist ever to exist) and go on tour.
Starting October 1st The One Tour kicks off. The Xbox One and its various launch titles will be available to play in major cities around the world until it launches on November 22nd. The events will be coupled with live music and all the other party accoutrements you can think of.
The tour will stop off in twenty U.S. states, four major Canadian cities, and thirteen major cities in Europe. It also plans on being at Paris Games Week, Milan Games Week, and Mardrid Games Week.
Sounds like fun, but letting me get a little taste of the future won’t tempt me towards the dark side. The PS4 is still better and cheaper. In today’s economy, nothing beats that combination.
How far are you willing to travel in order to play the Xbox One for a few minutes before it releases?
