A really, really big Xbox One console appeared in downtown Vancouver today.

The world's largest Xbox One is kicking off a national celebration of the next-gen console's launch, with Vancouver being its first stop.

“Xbox One is the biggest launch in Xbox history,” explains Greg Barber, Vice-President, Consumer Channels Group, Microsoft Canada. “Xbox One offers the best exclusive games, the best multiplayer experience and service and great entertainment—and we are thrilled to be able to celebrate with our community.”

By coming together, the Canadian Xbox Live community can power on and unlock incredible one-of-a-kind experiences and rewards by pledging their gamertags to the project known as One Source. Every gamertag pledged will contribute to unlocking these experiences – starting this week in Vancouver. Canadian Xbox fans can pledge with their gamertag to One Source in three ways: either in person at the console, through the Xbox Live Dashboard, or online.

“With One Source, we are celebrating the launch with our fans in an unprecedented way,” added Craig Flannagan, Director of Marketing, Xbox, Microsoft Canada. “We are giving the power to our fans to unlock incredible experiences.”

Xbox One arrives in stores on November 22, retailing at $499.
