Free Xbox One X Consoles Available To Some Who Are Willing To Eat Taco Bell

Microsoft also partnered with Taco Bell in 2001 for the OG Xbox.

122 Comments

Microsoft's Xbox One X console will cost $500 when it launches this November, but you can possibly get one for free... by eating Taco Bell. Starting on August 31, the $5 Steak Quesarito box will come with a code that you can redeem for a chance to win.

There will be a lot of winners, it seems, as Microsoft says in a news release that a potential winner will be selected every 10 minutes for the duration of the promo, which runs August 31 through October 4. In addition to the console, winners will receive a copy of Forza Motorsport 7 and a three-month Xbox Game Pass subscription.

No Caption Provided

As Microsoft reminds us, Microsoft and Taco Bell teamed up for a promotion around the original Xbox in 2001, and now the companies are "returning to their roots with this promotion to launch the Xbox One X." In more recent years, Taco Bell has partnered with Sony to promote PlayStation consoles.

"It's only fitting that the two brands that do 'boxes' best and have some of the greatest fans in the world have joined forces to box up the ultimate food and gaming offer for them," Taco Bell marketing executive Marisa Thalberg said. "We see this partnership with Xbox as yet another way Taco Bell is tapping what is current in culture and providing our fans access to unique experiences they cannot get anywhere else."

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, though it's not immediately clear when the winners will receive their consoles. Keep checking back with GameSpot for more.

Pre-orders for the Xbox One X will reportedly open soon. If you're attending Gamescom later this month in Germany, you can try out the console before everyone else.

The only problem that I can see with this is that people will have to waste their hard earned money on fake food at Taco Bell. I've eaten some fucking disgusting shit in my life but nothing comes close to the toxic swill that that place tries to pass off as "food".

@ButDuuude: its just taco bell, its just a game console, the worse part is these comments, too much effort to bash something lol a random fast food place and a game console. nobody cares what someone else like...I often wonder why other people care....$5 for a chicken n cheese quesadilla and the very (slim) change of winning a device someone may enjoy...not really all that big of a deal, only 19 year old basement dwellers judge an entire group of people based on their purchasing habits...if you've got money...like real money...just buy them all, worse thing ends up happening a device collects alittle dust due to inactivity....lol not a big deal its just a hobby, just a device. I'd never be that elitest to make a statement (sarcasm or otherwise) like "so and so bought this device,...eh only the worse own that ___ device" lol ....me ? Pc, console & handheld - own them all, bounce back n fowarth based on whatever mood I'm in....specs, power, and debates aside...doesn't really matter. Xbox ....brings out nothing in me, not nostalgia, anger, or happiness...just another device, I'm "indifferent" about it, if anything. No brand-loyalty, no fan-boyism, screaming girl-like hyped mentality...just another device, in a drawer full of several...hooked to a TV...too much emphasis / over-thinking on this lol. As for the food part...Taco Bell ? eh...processed fast-food (like all the rest)....I guess if you're buzzed enough....anything can taste moderately well.

@cdog21: Yeah I figured anyone that eats fast food likes Taco Bell. It's one of the few places I can eat that doesn't leave me on the toilet later.(Compared to McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Krstal, DQ, KFC, long Johns Silvers, etc)

But I can't play the Xbox One X when I'm stuck on the toilet. The Switch would be better suited for this promo.

Yo Quiero Xbox Bell ? I really hope Xbox One X sells good At $499 as then Sony will be more motivated to sell PS5 at $499, 3 year Hardware Refresh Cycles at $499 is the way to go in my opinion.

@Eddie619: I think sony is more focused on price over power and I think they will shoot for $399 again. It worked out great for them on ps4 and pro so I doubt they would change their strategy with pricing.
