The Xbox One launched in Australia last night at midnight in Sydney. To mark the occasion the city was seen to turn green in various locations which is the colour of the Xbox One’s branding. Locations such as Sydney Harbour, Centrepoint Tower and Luna Park all had Xbox symbols placed on them. A party was hosted at Luna Park for the event by Microsoft which was attended by 300 people (100 fans, 200 guests).
The first people in Australia to own and buy an Xbox console were Francis King and Angela Tran who preordered their console 2 years ago from EB games.
The Xbox One all in one entertainment system is available from a variety of retailers right now all around Australia for $599.
