To celebrate the launch of the Xbox One “Madden NFL 15” Bundle60 stores in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico will host tournaments for the new game. Sign up for local challenges or to watch the best in your area compete from Aug. 26 through Sept. 5. To find out more about tournaments check with your local store.

On Sept. 6, all Microsoft Stores will host a Madden and NFL Kickoff Party, coinciding with the official opening weekend of football season. Attend day-long festivities, including hands-on gameplay, giveaways and a fun photo opp that puts your face on the cover of the game.

To celebrate “Destiny’s” arrival, Microsoft retail stores will begin the countdown to midnight launch with events starting at 10 p.m. on Sept. 8 with early gameplay access, giveaways, food, drink and more. You’ll have a chance to get your hands on the game before picking up your copy.
