Microsoft’s Xbox One ‘Invitation’ Advert Stars Zachary Quinto and Steven Gerrard

Posted on October 25, 2013 AT 04:09am

Xbox One is nearing its November 22 launch date, so Microsoft is now starting to ramp up its marketing onslaught for the next-gen console, starting with this very expensive-looking television advert.

The advert highlights Titanfall, FIFA 14, Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, and Ryse: Son of Rome, and also features appearances from England and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Zachary Quinto in his Spock outfit. ”This is an invitation to a new generation,” the narrator says, “where your games and entertainment are no longer separated, but together, in one.”

Xbox One is set to release November 22 in 13 markets, with more to follow in 2014. You can check out the trailer below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
