Microsoft showcased the Xbox One to the media in Sydney

Following the high profile debut of the Xbox One at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft Australia recently showcased the console at a media event in Sydney.

The console on display in the photos has the final hardware, though the operating system and dashboard are currently being tweaked by Microsoft leading up to the launch.

The classic fighting series Killer Instinct was playable, bringing the long dormant franchise into the modern age with a graphical upgrade and free-to-play distribution model.

Forza Motorsport 5 was also shown, adding a whole new level of detail to the immersive driving experience the series is known for.

Capcom's zombie survival title, Dead Rising 3, was playable on the floor, with more interactive items and characters on-screen than in past installments.

In the casual space, the rock climbing mini game from Kinect Sports Rivals was on hand to demonstrate the improved capabilities of the Kinect sensor.

Xbox One, as well as the above titles, will be available in Australia on 22 November.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
