Xbox One Midnight Launch Events Detail

Microsoft and Best Buy are going to hold two big midnight opening events in NYC and LA to launch their Xbox One gaming device at night today. The midnight launch party in New York City will be held at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.  And the Los Angeles event will be held at Milk Studios in Hollywood at 855 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, California.

An exclusive concert will be held at both places. The first 1000 people in line to purchase an Xbox One or Xbox One game during the 8 PM presale at the NYC event will get an opportunity to enjoy an exclusive concert. However, in LA only the first 500 people in line to purchase an Xbox One or Xbox One game during the 10 PM presale will get a chance to enjoy an exclusive concert.

The exclusive giveaways include: Powerstar Golf, LocoCycle, Six Months Xbox Live Gold Membership and more. These exclusive treats will be available for the 2,000 people in NYC who will be purchasing an Xbox One each on-site. Meanwhile, in LA these giveaways will be for the first 1000 people. 

But Best Buy said that, "Consoles and select games will be redeemed starting at midnight, beginning with concert attendees." Also, many Best Buy stores across the United States will remain open for the midnight launch. But before going, you must check in to see if your local store is participating in the midnight openings for the Xbox One.

Although the gaming consoles will be given to customers after 12:01 AM at the midnight opening, Best Buy requested the customers to arrive before midnight in its stores. This is because all the deliveries will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Also, two separate lines comprising pre-ordered and non pre-ordered customers will be made. And Best Buy will distribute tickets to buy Xbox One on the spot two hours before the midnight opening. Also a very limited quantity of Xbox One units will be available beyond the pre-ordered amount.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
