See Microsoft's Jaw-Dropping Promo for Its 4K Gaming Console – Adweek

| 27 mins ago

It’s been known cryptically as “Project Scorpio,” like something out of a Bond flick, for the past year. But at last week’s E3 convention in Los Angeles, Microsoft finally dropped the veil from its newest product, officially dubbed Xbox One X, a 4K gaming system that’s being touted as “the most powerful console ever made.”

It goes on sale in November, priced at $500, with specs that include a liquid-cooled vapor chamber, six teraflops and 326 gigs of memory bandwidth. (Straight from Q’s gadget lab?)

To introduce the console, and try to spike pre-sales, the marketer debuted a two-minute ad that’s intended to show off its super-rich digital gameplay and hit fanboys right in the feels. Gamer geeks, commence salivating.

The system “triggers an emotional response,” said Craig McNary, director of Xbox’s integrated marketing. “Our campaign theme, ‘Feel True Power,’ is born from having the world’s most powerful console and deeply rich experiences. When we see our gamer experience Xbox One X for the first time in the film, we are in her shoes, feeling that same sense of wonder and excitement—power and true 4K console gaming fully realized.”

The spot, from Ayzenberg Group, uses chipsets and “pixel threads” to tout the console’s computing power and immersive entertainment. Kudos for choosing a girl gamer, by the way, who appears to be both blown away and energized by the new gaming challenge in front of her. (Hair standing on end!) Shorter versions of the mini-movie will run on social and digital.
