The lights are on
Microsoft's Upload Outreach contest is meant to encourage
fan-made content. If your video wins, you could win an Xbox One.
The contest is pretty simple: make a one-minute video about
an Xbox 360 or Xbox One game, upload it to the Internet, and send the link to
this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the contest is September 15.
If your video is selected, you'll win an Xbox One, all the
launch games, and a year of Xbox Live Gold. Not a bad haul for one minute.
Our TakeIf you read Game Informer or Gameinformer.com, you know that I'm not clever or
ambitious, so that excludes me from this contest. However, it's a worth a shot
for our more creative-minded readers. The contest is intended to whet your
appetite for the Xbox One's Upload Studio, which allows you to edit and upload gameplay
footage. This generation of consoles should be interesting, and user-created
content and sharing and broadcasting of gameplay footage is going to be a major
push for both console manufacturers.
