Celebrating the largest launch in Xbox history, a 3D water projection was displayed undernearth the North pylon of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, as a tribute to gaming culture. If you want to talk about marketing going to extreme lengths, this is as extreme as things get.

Nothing could escape the momentous occasion as the landmark Sydney Tower was switched from its usual Westfield branding to a beacon for Xbox One.

While the bright green hue graced the night, the official Xbox One launch party was in full swing at Luna Park. 300 guests in attendance, including 100 of the country biggest fans were treated to a performance by The Presets, before being amongst the first in the world to collect their consoles.

Francis King and Angela Tran were the first people in Australia to collect their Xbox One console, locking in a pre-order almost two years ago at EB Games.
