After keeping a display unit Xbox One under lock and key at PAX Australia, Microsoft will be bringing around 100 playable units to the EB Games Expo in October. What's more, Ausgamer reports, these units will be available to the general public, not just VIPs.
“We are thrilled that EB Games and Microsoft are combining forces to give gamers a chance to get hands-on with the Xbox One at this year’s EB Expo. We hope that this glimpse of the future is as exciting to the gaming public as it is to us. We can’t give away too much just yet, but watch this space for more huge announcements in the coming weeks.” — Debra McGrath, Manager of Brand Engagement and Events.
This is big news for Aussies, who only recently saw the first reveal of the console on Australian soil at PAX Australia. For many fence-sitting attendees, this exposure to the controversial console may make or break their decision to buy the console at launch later this year.
