Xbox 360® Roadtrip returns to Auckland this Sunday

NZ’s Biggest Bus comes back to the Viaduct due to popular demand
– and there’s a console to be won every hour

Auckland, March 24, 2006 - The Xbox 360 Roadtrip finishes its nationwide month-long tour on Monday 27th March in Whangarei, but due to overwhelming demand we've squeezed in one final Auckland date this Sunday 26 March at Auckland’s Eastern Viaduct, 1pm-7pm.

Gamers can get hands-on with 20 Xbox 360 consoles and hi-definition Samsung screens and check out all the titles available at launch – Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3, Fight Night Round 3 - as well as never-before-seen upcoming releases such as Dead Or Alive 4.

The Bus has both R16 and all-ages sections, meaning the whole family can check it out.

The Rock will be on site giving away 1 Xbox 360 console every hour, plus there are merchandise and games giveaways and the chance to get up close and personal with gorgeous Perfect Dark Zero® heroine Joanna Dark.

Thousands of gamers queued up to be among the first to get an Xbox 360 when it went on sale at 12:01am on Thursday.

Now Aucklanders get another chance to check out the console and the huge range of mind-blowing games available at launch, and get on board the Xbox 360 Bus – the largest vehicle ever constructed in New Zealand.

Gamers can sign up to get VIP priority entry and jump the queues at, or simply turn up at the Bus.
