Five places? For two hours each?

Have to give them a bit of credit for at least going from one end of the continent almost to the other though.

Is the Xbox One being delayed in Arizona or something? not much of an early access if it is 2 weeks after the console launches.

Yeah that's weird, but I guess late purchasers can get a hands on before they buy or decide to.

Well, I WOULD go to the one in Scottsdale, but I'm positive I'll have my own by then. IF that date is wrong, then count me in. Probably is wrong since there is over a month gap between the other tour appearances.

It's probably a typo. Nov 6. is the right date I'm guessing.

This sounds stupid; why are they not releasing demo kits to retailers?

Probably because having limited demos will build up hype.

If you throw out demos everywhere a month before launch you'll get a situation where the system loses its luster if everyone gets to demo it and not to mention there will be numerous defects or glitches that will skew done from buying the system.

Having it available for 150 minutes means the vast majority won't get to play it but will show up, get wowed and want that ****.


And it won't be surprising if it is a very carefully controlled hands-on.

Saw this on Reddit last night. They're going to be nowhere near me.
