Win an Xbox One every two minutes, console coming late November?

August 31, 2013 by Staff - 3 Comments


This particular post is pretty important for two reasons:

  1. It contains details of a competition to give away an Xbox One every two minutes beginning November 5.
  2. It gives us further insight to the release date of the Xbox One (which Microsoft still hasn’t told us!).

The Xbox One Contest

Head to the main page here and download the FAQ here (PDF). Basically here’s how it works:

  1. You need to purchase specially marked Doritos packs or Mountain Dew drinks in order to collect game codes.
  2. Then starting from September 30 you’ll be able to enter the codes onto the website in order to bank points. Each code you enter will also give you one entry into sweepstakes for an Xbox One.
  3. Beginning November 5 you can then use the points you’ve banked to bid on Xbox One consoles that will be put to auction from 9pm to 2am ET each night.
  4. The points can also be used to score some Xbox One swag from the Marketplace.

Release Date Info

As contained in the official rules for the contest noted above:

Xbox One has a targeted launch date of late November 2013; therefore, the initial shipments may be slightly delayed; please allow 12-14 weeks for delivery.

So if that is correct (and of course it just says “targeted”, not confirmed or anything else) then it looks like Microsoft will not be first to the next-generation market against the Playstation 4. When will it arrive in November though!?

    The win one every 2 min is just a sales pitch to sell loads of chips and drinks so people can bie points to win a Xbox one how ever its just stupid as the one with the fattest wallets will win the ones who want to enter it cause they cant pay the price of the Xbox one when it is lunched will be unable to win as some are bieing over the price of one for chips and drinks in total so if you win a auction congrats you are a fat ass who has no life and made the company more money then the Xbox one you will get is worth have fun with your way over priced Xbox one :3
