The Georgia Entertainment Association brought about 100 people out to the new Microsoft store at Lenox Mall in Atlanta for a private shopping and playing experience after the mall closed. According to Freddy Cameron, founder and CEO of the Association, “they wanted to bring people out and let them play with the ‘toys’ in the store; the laptops, the phones, the games and walk around, talk to the staff. Because it’s a new store, a lot of people don’t know about it …”
‘The Xbox Kinect seemed to be the crowd favorite. I’ve never ever played an Xbox before, but I did tonight and it was really fun; I won’t spend too much time on it because I’ll get hooked, but it was great,” continued Cameron.
Exciting live performances by Sam Collier and Young Dirty Bastard, lots of drawings for prizes, and everyone having a great time made it a shopping experience this writer actually enjoyed.
