Win Xbox One consoles with Forza 5, Splosion man, and other games and goodies including a free month to a year of XBL by buying certain items off the menu. Not entirely sure what the whole list of items are, but this is a different kind of promotion.

How is this different from the Taco Bell promotion? This stuff happens all the time ...

M$ has been throwing their money like crazy at these sponsors..to add to the list, chef boyardee is also giving away x1. I could understand the mountain dew and taco bell sponors in the beginning..but its getting a little desperate at this point. why buy the x1 if everyone is giving them away...

Please point me in the direction of all the fine exquisite items that movies use as partners. The whole point of marketing this way is to reach as many people as possible, that's why the use brands like Subway/McDonalds/Doritos because they're popular, simple as that.

i guess it helps that eating food has garnered mainstream appeal of late.

The fact you will ALWAYS WIN is one difference. From what I have seen myself and heard you will ALWAYS WIN something.

Anyone got that GIF of the McDs food at the laughable atrocity that was the Xbone launch party? It was the best part of that waste of time.

Their desperation is pretty damn funny actually. I'll bite on this one for a while since I eat the southwestern chicken wraps. If I happen to win, I'll just give the Xbone to my roommate since he wants to play Killer Instinct. He has a PS4 as well.
