Auckland, 3 November 2006 – Some people will do anything to get their hands on the planet’s hottest next-generation gaming console – and this was demonstrated last night, when a mystery bidder at the Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre fund-raising auction paid $7,500 for the ultimate ‘big night in’ at the Xbox 360 Room in Auckland.
The bidder will take up to 10 friends to the Xbox 360 Room for an evening of next-generation gaming hosted by New Zealand hip hop stars and Xbox fans Scribe, PNC and Con Psy of Frontline, getting hands-on with the latest and greatest Xbox 360 games and accessories.
They also have the chance to battle Scribe in a Game With Fame on Xbox Live, the world’s leading online console gaming service.
Xbox product marketing manager Tom Hunt says, “We know Kiwis love Xbox 360, and this phenomenal bid really proves it.
“We’re pleased to have been involved with the RMTC again in 2006, and we’re absolutely stoked with the auction result for this extremely worthy cause.”
The star-studded auction raised more than $200,000 for the RMTC.
