If the first advertisement is anything to go by, Microsoft will be pulling out the big guns to market their next-gen system the Xbox One. Titled Xbox One: Invitation, this 1:30 spot features appearances by Liverpool soccer player Steven Gerrard and Zachary Quinto (plus a woman who you could swear is Penelope Cruz).
You can expect that a company like Microsoft is going to push the Xbox One as much as possible but what’s been so surprising (to me at least) is that Billy Gates and his team have waited this long to start getting the official word about.
The premise of the ad is simple: invite people to use an all-in-one console which has both your gaming, movie, and television needs. It shows off those Mechs from Titanfall, Steven Gerrard for Fifa 2014, Zachary Quinto (to show how you can watch new releases like Star Trek: Into Darkness), a McLaren P1 from Forza, a zombie from Dead Rising 3, and a some Roman soldiers from the upcoming Ryse.
The Xbox One releases in North America on November 22nd, 2013.
But seriously, I could have sworn that woman on the couch was Penelope Cruz.
