Microsoft Store Destiny Launch Party 9/8/2014
On Monday night Team Gouki attended the Destiny Launch party inside the Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas, NV. I haven't been to a midnight launch since Halo Reach. That night we just waited in car outside of a Best Buy until they opened the doors. Only nubfarm stands in line. I remember way back in 2007, waiting in line OUTSIDE the GameStop for a midnight release. Meanwhile the GS was closed, the lights were off & all the employees just hid in the back until it was time to open the doors around midnight.

Saturday November 23, 2013 You had the chance to play Xbox One with Legendary Boxer Sugar Ray Leonard. We were there ... of course they don't let me near him.
This Microsoft store has been open for more than a week now. I was in there last Friday & checked it out for the first time. What's it like? It's like a Mac store, but it's green. The cool thing is they have kiosks out in the main walkway of the mall, just so they can spring out from around the corner & surprise a family with an Xbox One Controller.
Too bad Fifa14 is touch screen now.
Here's a Sugar Ray Leonard getting pwnd so bad by a little kid that he is trying to distract him by having a conversation.
*I don't know why people stare into the lens when they KNOW they are not supposed to be in the picture. This guy was a fellow camera man too. Duck Jimmy! Trollin' me, doggin' me ... what's the shits?
Check out the Microsoft store if you want to get an Xbox One or if you already have it, go buy some games. They got tablets & stuff there too. Even PC's that'll run those same games better than your Xbox One. Thursday night 450 people lined up to get an Xbox One -oh it's serious- believe it or not everyone left happy that night. Watch out for some more upcoming events during the holiday season.
Thanks for reading.

Will they sell? I've seen a ton of consoles come & go over the years. I've even flipped a few in the past. Well I'm gonna try it again this year & want to share my experience with everyone. Will I make money? Ridiculous money?
Of course some Jimmy is going to have to bite for this to be any sort of success. I'm trying to get $799 for the Xbox & 699 for the PlayStation. We've had countless debates on what the hype is going to be for these machines. I can only come to the conclusion that people are going to go crazy just like they did in the past. Yesterday I was at a Demo for Xbox One, they pulled up a truck & plopped out a bunch of systems & let people play. I remember this one Jimmy coming, well dressed & had a hot girlfriend & stupid little dog. Proper nuab. He was flipping out while he was watching Forza. Clapping & shit. Out of control. He kept saying. "I gotta get this, this awesome."
Do you think this Jimmy has pre-ordered? I don't. I'm hoping that panic mode is going to settle in for a lot of people & the loons will just buy asap without regard. Am I making sense? So I listed 2 machines right now. An Xbox One for $799 & a Playstation 4 for $699. I also have another PS4 on reserve. I thot I had another Xbox One on reserve as well, but I can't find any record. If I can pay for that third Playstation by selling these 2, the second Playstation will be pure profit! Let's go. You can check out the auctions below.
If you're interested in Las Vegas, NV I can pretty much guarantee you will get them the day they come out. I have never had a problem with Amazon shipping. & you know me, obviously, you're reading this story.
I'll add future updates on the status of these auctions.
Don't be a Jimmy!

New video showcasing some games for Xbox ONE. Are they the best? Can you count the exclusives?
Do those Fifa & Madden cut scenes count as next-gen footage? No. Ryse is dumb. You only have to push square to beat the entire game. Oh wait, my bad that as God of War. Close enough.
Thanks for watching.
Xbox's Major Nelson unboxes the new Xbox One for the first time. See what's inside the Day One edition.
It does come with the headset now... and a sticker.
I hate these touch based power buttons on consoles. I don't want it to turn on just because I'm wiping some dust off of it. Give me a real button or switch.
