Details of Xbox One Launch Tour Confirmed

Gamers could be heading to Manchester and London to get an early look at the new Xbox One.

The Microsoft console, which is set to be released in the UK next month, will go on display at two special events that have been organised by communications agency thefield.

An East London venue is currently being prepared for the showcase, which will give attendees the chance to get hands-on with the Xbox One ahead of its release.

The Shoreditch location will host the all in one gaming and entertainment system from Friday October 25th to Sunday November 3rd.

A further showcase will then take place at a Manchester site near to Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre from Monday November 18th to Wednesday November 27th.

Gamers will be able to play Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3 at the events, so booking Manchester hotels could be popular among those who want to try out the Xbox One before it becomes available in shops.

Xbox brand marketing manager Marianne McLardy said: "We are excited to be working with thefield on the Xbox One trial tour and look forward to launching the campaign together and contributing to Xbox's continued success in the market place."

The new console is the successor to the Xbox 360, which followed on from the original Xbox.
