You may be aware Microsoft has a major press event it will be holding on October 6 in New York City, where the company is expected to officially reveal a number of new hardware products, among other things. Microsoft is also holding an after-party at the same location several hours later, and some folks will be lucky enough to win invites to this event.
Microsoft's Xbox Live programming head Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has posted word that the invite is for the event happening from 8 p.m. to midnight at the Skylight at Moynihan Station in New York City. He states:
Those attending will have the opportunity to get hands on with surprise Windows 10 devices, as well as:
- New Xbox One Experience – the completely redesigned User Interface for the Xbox One
- Xbox App on Windows 10
- Rise of the Tomb Raider gameplay demo
- Halo 5 4v4 Arena multiplayer gameplay
If you will be in the NYC area during that time and want to attend, email Major@Xbox.com before Thursday, October 1 at Noon Eastern time. Hryb will randomly select a number of people to invite, and they will get two passes to the party; one for them and one for a guest. Keep in mind this is just for an invite; Microsoft won't be offering any transportation or lodging for this event. Also, since alcohol will be offered at the party, this is just for people 21 years of age and over.
