I GOT MY NEW XBOX! | XboxEra Launch Celebration Competition

Get Excited!

Here at XboxEra, we’re just as excited as you lot about about the upcoming generation of gaming – especially on the Xbox Platform.

We want to extend our own excitement to our community, so we’re pleased to announce a very special competition that anyone can get involved in!

How to Play

This is the easy part!

To enter, simply submit a picture of how excited you are, or your pets are, or your potted plant (if that’s your jam!) upon picking up your new Series X or S on launch day. Once you’ve taken your photo, all you need to do then is post your ‘celebratory image’ in the competition thread on our forums with your associated Gamertag!

Here’s an entertaining example provided by me!

Imagine what I’m like to work with!

You can choose to be in the image or not of course (we get it, the internet is a strange and scary place) but the point is, we want this to be fun!

The competition begins worldwide on Launch day (November 10th 00:01 GMT, and will close on November 17th at 23:59 GMT.

The team here at XboxEra will be judging the best celebratory photos submitted and will be awarding 12 months of Game Pass Ultimate to two lucky winners.

Yeah I know…war of the cables in the background there! :grinning:

Very nice! Amazing packaging.

My oldest son is very happy. He doesn’t look it because he’s always tired and in pain from Chemo.

Good luck everyone. :grin: Bluehawk357
