Virtually party and raise money to celebrate the advent of the next-gen consoles

Team Xbox is going to be in a celebratory mood in light of the launch of the new Xbox generation. If you’re not too busy getting either an Xbox Series X or S, playing on one, or sitting around feeling woeful that you didn’t secure one by preordering in time, they’re going to be running a global livestream.


Head of Xbox Phil Spencer promises the livestream to be a “companion to your gaming plans” rather than more traditional fare with big announcements and press releases aplenty.

Instead, there will be: behind-the-scenes looks at next-gen games, stories from developers, “Let’s Plays” with creators, and a showcase of the available launch highlights.

If it all still feels too promotional for your sensibilities, Phil says it will be also a chance to “raise vital funds for great causes,” so that’s lovely.

The livestream will be available on YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook Gaming from 7pm GMT onwards on November 10th.
