Giant Xbox One console shows up in Canada

Giant Xbox One appears in Canada

A giant replica of the Xbox One console appeared in Vancouver Canada, so it seems Microsoft is going big with the new game console, literally!

Recently the software giant built a giant Surface 2 in London to promote its new tablet. Now Microsoft seems to be doing the same thing to promote the next-gen game console that goes on sale on November 22nd. According to Xbox Canada website, gamers can pledge their gamertags at this special Xbox One Source page or in person (see the address at the end of the article), the more users pledge their tags the sooner the giant console replica will unlock. What’s inside? That’s something TBA, but you can expect something “special”.

The sooner you pledge, the more chances you’ll have to win. Spread the word!” — The Canada Xbox website states.
