Microsoft shows some of the Xbox FanFest freebies it will have at E3 2016

Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb posted a video on Periscope that shows just some of the freebies the company will be giving to the 500 lucky ticket holders for the Xbox FanFest in Los Angeles during E3 2016.

The Periscope video shows Hryb and Microsoft's Chris Munson showing the very cool looking Xbox branded backpack that will be given to all Xbox FanFest members. Inside the backpack will be a number of nice freebies, including a download code for the Windows 10 version of Minecraft, a number of t-shirts featuring games like Scalebound, Forza Motorsport and Killer Instinct, and a Halo Mega Bloks toy. Hyrb says that there will be a couple of extras in the backpack that can't be shown to the public yet.

If you are going to be in the LA area next week, you might want to see if you can be one of those 500 Xbox FanFest members. It will include access to Microsoft's big E3 2016 press event on June 13, a special Forza event at the Petersen Automotive Museum later that day and a party on June 14 at the Premiere House at Regal LA Live.
