How many of you guys have seen "Xbox One" the tour bus for the Xbox? I read an article stating that on Canada Day alone, 22,000 individuals tried the Xbox. So I'm just curious as to who took part in this event.

Here's the article (http://www.nationalpost.com/financialpost/story.html?id={DB455054-9C25-48ED-8FCA-A03AF93FF453}) that I read.
Here's the offical site for the tour:www.xboxontour.com (http://www.xboxontour.com/)

I live in Ottawa. I've seen the big truck once and I've seen Xbox vans a couple of times as well. Every time I see them though, they are parked in a closed parking lot and it doesn't look like much is going on inside of them.

Thats messed up.. I just checked the site out.. the next stop for the bus is no other than.... Ottawa! We have the Super-Ex fair in town, and I guess its going to be there. I want to go just to show off my Halo skills :)

I live in Toronto
A couple days before the Xbox's launch, a few trucks (big rigs with a huge xbox logo) were driving around the city, up and down the streets all day. It was to promote an event down by the water front. I didn't go, because I didn't care.

Live near Montreal, Quebec. Just visited the website and never heard of them before. I saw a few pictures taken in Sherbrook.. a little far from my place for my taste. If they would do something in Montreal or a little on the west shore I'd be more than happy to go and visit them ;)

Yeh, I've only seen the Xbox van once around my house! The games they had on display where Halo (duh!), NBA 2k2, Football game (forgot the name), and Fuzion Frenzy.


How come its only in Canada and none in the US? Just wondering...maybe there IS something at least to be proud of being a Canadian! :eek:

I live in Ottawa, and I hear its passed here, but I haven't seen it. Oh well... what are the odds of seeing it anyway? Ottawa's a big city.

Hmm a few of my relatives are coming up this week and because of that I may end up going to the EX. They better not have an age restriction to play Halo there because I've been looking for some good Halo opponents.

I live in Quebec, they probably would not let the bus come here because they would have to translate Xbox in french to satisfy the Seperatists.

Actually, as soon as you cross the border there is snow on the ground, you are greeted by Mounted police on horseback and the only way into the cities is by dogsled....(watch out for the moose).

Ya, and you may be able to see my pet beaver building his damn next to our Indian smoke house.

It is funny that some Americans actually believe this trash, and blame the cold weather on Canada.
