So I will be trying to cover everything from the launch party and gradually will be updating this post.

The launch party took place at Ansal Plaza in Delhi. The event started at 5:45 pm and i managed to reach at 5:30 pm, blame it on Delhi’s terrible traffic. DJ Aqeel was playing the music on the stage as the entire thing was being set. I could spot Peter Moore and a few more people from Microsoft, DJ Aqeel was taking requests from people and he was playing them. Vip and Media people had a place where they could sit where as the others who had an ordinary invitation were standing at the back.

DJ Aqeel played the music for an almost an hour and then MTv VJ Cyrus took over the event talking about xbox 360 and poking fun here and there.

Country Manager, Mohit Anand had been invited on the stage about Xbox and its launch, after that Peter Moore came on the stage, he spoke generally about Xbox 360 and why it is being launched in India.

Yuvraj Singh and Akshay Kumar are the brand ambasaddors for Xbox 360 in India. Akshay Kumar had made a stunning entrance. Yuvraj Singh was not there for the event but he delivered his message through video. Xbox 360’s India advertisement was revealed which has been recorded by me :). Microsoft will be launching a game for indians called Yuvraj Singh Cricket. After Akshay Kumar had exited the program, it was time for famous indian band Euphoria to perform.They performed for almost 2 hours +, before their performance Peter Moore had exited the program. However other Microsoft officials and other people from media like me were there. Euphoria’s performance was awesome and they rocked the entire event.

MTv had done a great job of hosting the entire show. I got chance to speak to Peter Moore and i asked him about Halo 3 since he didnt utter a word about it when he was mentioning upcoming games like Gears of war, Viva Pinata etc etc . Here is how it all went:

(I was shouting Halo!! Halo!!, clearly showing my love for the game and then VJ Cyrus spotted me)

Prince – I have a question for Mr Moore

Cyrus – hehe, i will just take the mic to him

Prince- Tell us more about Halo 3 like its launch in India etc etc

Peter Moore – Halo3 is an upcoming game by Microsoft and it will be launched in India sometime in 2007.

Peter Moore – i have a question for you

Prince – yea?

Peter Moore – are you ready to finish the fight?

Prince – yep! 😉 😛 🙂

Peter Moore – The Earth needs you 🙂

He was extremely happy with my question though somehow i forgot to tape the entire thing 😦

So the party ended up at about 10:00 pm with Mohit Anand bidding goodbye and saying thankyou to everyone, though 90% of media people and atleast 80% of MS executives, employees etc had left the event already..lol
