If you’ve been an Xbox fan long enough, you may still remember it the iconic moment from CES 2001 when the original Xbox was unveiled … by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Wouldn’t you like to hang a beautiful oil painting of this very special moment on the wall of your home?
Weird question, admittedly, but Xbox and The Rock seem to think some people might be interested. Enough to make it the centerpiece of a giveaway that coincides with today’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
While appearing on the anniversary stream, The Rock encouraged fans to visit xboxvault.com to enter a drawing for “hundreds” of prizes, including the aforementioned oil painting, custom Xbox hardware themed Red Notice, Game Pass Cards and much more. At the time of writing this, the Xbox Vault website is not yet open so the criteria for the giveaway are unclear, but we will update this as soon as it becomes available.
Xbox 20th Anniversary New backwards compatible games
This is nowhere near the first time The Rock has run giveaways and other promotions with Xbox, including one it did last year to give away Xbox Series X consoles to children’s hospitals.
Today there were a handful of other announcements related to the Xbox anniversary celebrations, including the addition of over 70 new Xbox backward compatibility games and the surprisingly early release of the Halo Infinite multiplayer.
