Xbox ANZ Transforms Queenstown Into ‘Greenstown’

As the clock hit midnight, Aussie’s became some of the first in the world to usher in the next generation of gaming with the launch of the Xbox Series X|S.

In celebration, Xbox ANZ transformed Queenstown into ‘Greenstown’. This included the construction of a giant Xbox Series X on Lake Wakitipu, matched with a light show that was projected onto the giant console and green lights that lit up the surrounding Remarkables mountain range.

The story:

  • Xbox ANZ took over New Zealand’s Queenstown to create ‘Greenstown’ – as Xbox fans across the Tasman in Australia and New Zealand celebrated the global launch of the most powerful gaming console ever made: the Xbox Series X and the smallest and sleekest Xbox ever, the Xbox Series S.
  • In partnership with Xbox ANZ, Fergburger have created three limited edition signature Fergburger products for New Zealand fans to enjoy; including an Xbox Series X Fergburger, Fergbakers Assassin’s Creed Valhalla “Viking Pie” and Mrs Ferg’s Destiny 2: Beyond Light Stasis Gelato. These will be available for ten days, starting from Tuesday 10 November, and anyone who purchases one of these menu items will receive a one-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate voucher.
  • Xbox Series X ($749 AUD RRP) and Xbox Series S ($499 AUD RRP) both launch in Australia and New Zealand on November 10. Please check in with your local retailers directly for more details on availability in your area.
