Microsoft to Live Stream Xbox Series X|S Launch Celebration

Posted on October 30, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X with 2 Comments

On November 10, Microsoft will live stream an Xbox Series X|S launch celebration in which it’s inviting gamers to play alongside team Xbox.

“This will be a moment of play, not press releases, as next-generation consoles begin to land in the hands of players around the world,” Microsoft Head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced. “Instead of big announcements, we will mark the beginning of a new era by gaming alongside one another. We will take this moment to have some fun and look forward to having you join us.”

Microsoft says that it will host “Let’s Play” segments with creators, showcase special launch highlights from around the globe, and raise money for great causes during the celebration.

“On November 10, we invite you, players of all identities and backgrounds, console generations and devices, skill sets and tastes, to celebrate, connect, and play together,” Spencer said. “We invite you to grab your device of choice and play alongside Team Xbox, your favorite creators, and our partners, right from your homes around the world. We invite you to take a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the next generation of games, hear the stories of people who make them, and play along with them.”

The global live stream begins November 10 at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET and will be available on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook Gaming.

    Im still very salty about the fact that I signed up for All Access last year where they told me they will forgive the rest of my console payments in lieu of getting a new xbox once I meet the minimum payments.... which happens in November.... and I still haven't been able to get an All Access Series X. So any payment past November is an extra payment I wasn't supposed to make

    …and only for selected members of the media that Microsoft has deemed MVPs?
