Toronto: Visit the House of X This Weekend

Behold the feeling of true power.

Have you gotten your hands on the recently-released Xbox One X yet?

If you’re the owner of a 4K television, then my review admittedly didn’t tell you a lot (what can I say? I work with what I’ve got). But if you’d like to go hands-on and feel the power of X for yourself, then there’s good news — at least, if you can be in Toronto sometime over the next three days.

Beginning today, Saturday, November 18th, Xbox Canada is hosting the House of X, a series of events where you can experience Microsoft’s newest console in all its glory. Through Monday, November 20th, the doors will be open at 11am for you to swing by 202 Queen Street West (M5V 1Z2) and strap in. But from 8 to 11pm each night, there will be an exclusive game night event to partake in.

For Saturday, this will be “A Game Night Far Far Away,” which will pit good versus evil in huge online battles in some game or another. With a name like that, it could be anything. Regardless, will you be the star of this war? Sunday, November 19th is “Hockey Night in Toronto,” as players hit the ice in 4K, and Monday, November 20th, “Slam Dunx” will bring a bit of B-ball action to the streets of the 6ix. Boom shakalaka!

While you can drop by at any time during the day, the attendance for the nighttime events is limited, so be sure to RSVP on the event’s Facebook page to ensure you’ve got a spot.

And for those of you not in Toronto? Worry not, as this would appear to be only the first of several House of X “activations” to come soon. I’ll try to keep you up on any more details if I hear them here, but following Xbox Canada on Facebook and Twitter would be a great way to hedge your bets.
