Rather improbably, Microsoft’s latest console is called the Xbox One X, touted as the most powerful gaming console made yet. Did they run out of inspiration for the name? Either way, here is its equally high budget ad campaign. Via Adweek:
Xbox One X, the Microsoft product touted as “the most powerful console ever made,” continues to roll out advertising that’s so cinematic it might even lure adrenaline-junkie non-gamers into the fold.
A slick new spot from 215 McCann puts sports stars, race cars, aliens and warriors against a catchy Kanye West soundtrack for 60 seconds of nonstop action. It compellingly makes the point that you can be part of this immersive world, if you have $500 to plunk down on the 4K gaming console when it launches Nov. 7.
The ad, like the product reveal video from agency Ayzenberg Group first shown at E3 a few months ago, takes pains to be inclusive in its portrayal of gaming fans. This time around, there’s a mix of male and female players of different ethnicities responding to a range of emotions that happen when they’re fighting off demons, scoring touchdowns, crossing the finish line and running for their virtual lives.
