On October 18, 2006, Microsoft will host the X'06 Canada event at an undisclosed location in downtown Toronto. Microsoft has dubbed this to be 'the Hottest Video Game Event of the Season'. Front and centre to this event will be the Xbox 360 and all its associated products, including Xbox Live, the Xbox Live Marketplace, Xbox 360 hardware (the Vision Camera and perhaps even the HD-DVD add-in) and Xbox 360 games. From the exclusive invitation that I received, the following is stated that:
You are up for one wild ride, X’06 promises to be the most exciting event to come north of the border yet. Get your hands on all those games on your pre-order list weeks before they will be available in stores. Meet industry visionaries and some of the most brilliant minds behind your beloved Xbox Live gameplay sessions. And connect all your favourite Xbox gamers in the flesh. We have a whack of good stuff in store for you.
At least one of the people attending will be Larry Hyrb, a.k.a. Major Nelson, the director of programming for Xbox Live. There are other Microsoft MVPs at this event as well. I'll have my camera, so hopefully I'll be able to take a few pictures at this event for all to see.
