Called the Xbox 360TM Hour Tour, the tour will be the public's first chance to play Xbox 360, the first next generation games console, before it is available in the UK on the 2nd December.

British gamers will get their hands on hotly anticipated Xbox 360 titles including Perfect Dark Zero, "Kameo: Elements of PowerTM", a mystical action-adventure game, Project Gotham Racing series plus countless other new titles never played before.

The 360 Hour Tour kicks off at The Lighthouse in Glasgow before making it's way southwards to Birmingham's Custard Factory, stopping off at The Light in Leeds and culminating in London's Mercer Street Studios on 24th November to the 27th November - a week before launch.

These venues will be home to 60 consoles and will also host a special VIP preview evening for a few lucky gamers. The events are open to the general public from 10am - 6pm. Gamers will be registered on arrival for 30 minutes of gaming at an allocated time in the day
