Win a Limited Edition Nerdist Xbox One (and More) at Comic-Con!

If patience is a virtue, then most of us must be eligible for sainthood by now because we’ve been waiting all year long for San Diego Comic-Con to make like Aragorn and return to our lives. Well, the wait is nearly over and since good things come to those who wait, we’ve got one heck of a good thing coming your way this year: a chance to win your very own collectible Xbox at Comic-Con!

Were you one of the lucky ones born with a lightning-fast mouse finger? (It’s a good thing you’ve been playing all those first-person shooters.) If so, get excited because Xbox is going to be giving away 20 custom, collectible consoles to their biggest fans. In order to win, simply head over the Xbox Gaming Lounge (located at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Seaport Ballroom) and start ogling the custom Xbox One consoles. Once you’ve picked your jaw up off of the floor, snap a photograph of your favorite one, add a sweet filter if that’s your thing, then tweet it for your chance to take home the ultimate con exclusive: a custom Xbox One. Make sure that you follow @Xbox, tweet the photo of your favorite console in the Xbox Gaming Lounge, and include the hashtags #XboxOne and #XboxSweeps or your entry will be like so many tears in the rain: lost.


While we’re super jazzed on the wide array of custom consoles that Xbox will be giving away at this year’s SDCC, we didn’t want to feel left out and we especially wanted to make sure we had something extra special for you guys, so we’re teaming up with the Xbox crew to give away a Nerdist collectible Xbox One console! That’s right — you can unlock the “Enjoy Your Burrito” life achievement at this year’s SDCC. Be sure to keep an eye tuned to @Xbox on Twitter and watch for a very special tweet with more info. When the time is right, all you’ll have to do to win is retweet it and sacrifice a cattle to the Elder Gods. Okay, maybe just retweeting it will suffice, but you get the picture.
