Giant Xbox One opens in Montreal; offers a ride in a Lamborghini

On Halloween, Microsoft's Xbox Canada division started a country-wide tour in Vancouver with a giant 40 foot long and 20 feet high Xbox One console. The structure opened up to reveal playable Xbox One games, along with a staged zombie attack.

This weekend, the huge Xbox One made its way to a location in Montreal. As with its appearance in Vancouver, people were asked to pledge their Xbox Live gamertags in order to open up the console. On Sunday, the pledge goal was reached and the Xbox One once again opened up to an awaiting crowd. The official Xbox Canada Twitter account covered the event.

This time, no zombies tried to eat the assembled group, but there was a very cool surprise for 60 people who made it to the event. They got selected to go to the nearby Gilles Villeneuve track to ride in a Lamborghini at speeds of up to 150 MPH; this event was to help promote the Xbox One launch title "Forza Motorsport 5."

The Xbox One is supposed to continue its tour of Canada ahead of the Nov. 22 Xbox One launch, but there's no word on which city it will appear in next.
