New Zealand Launch
At a special midnight event at Auckland’s Shed 10 tonight, hundreds of Xbox fans gathered to celebrate the arrival of the first new Xbox console in eight years. In addition, an ecstatic Daniel Livingstone became the first New Zealander to get his hands on the coveted first console, fresh from the shark tank at Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium where it has been ‘housed’ for the last week for safe-keeping. Tonight’s event was the largest Xbox launch in New Zealand history. At Shed 10, fans were invited to get hands-on with the newest Xbox games and to see former Shihad front man Jon Toogood and AHoriBuzz’s Aaron Tokona take on Rocksmith 2014. Aucklands Sky Tower was also lit up green in celebration of the launch.
