Microsoft holding contest to send 10 people to attend their 2014 E3 media briefing

E3 2014 is still three months away but Microsoft is already planning to announce quite a few Xbox One games at their annual media briefing before the video game trade show begins in Los Angeles. Today it was announced that Microsoft plans to pick five winners to attend their 2014 media briefing, to be held this year on June 9th.

Details about the contest and how to sign up are now available on a special Xbox promo site. The contest is open to residents of the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, with registration beginning today and lasting through March 17th at 11:59 am Eastern Time.

Five winners will be picked and each one can bring a guest to travel to LA to attend the E3 Media Briefing for Microsoft and Xbox.  The trip begins on June 8 and ends on June 10th and Microsoft will pay for the flight and hotel rooms, along with transportation to and from the hotel room to the airport. Microsoft will even pay for one dinner and one breakfast or lunch during the trip

Unfortunately, it appears as if the prize package does not include entry into E3 itself, which officially begins on June 10 and lasts until June 12th. The good news is that the winners will get a $200 Visa card for incidentals and a $3,000 Microsoft Store gift card.

In addition to the online entry form, people can also enter the contest at their retail Microsoft Store location; the drawing for the five winners will be held on March 26th.
