on September 7, 2015 9:36 AM

After hosting a Fanfest in Taipei, Taiwan, Microsoft moved to Hong Kong, hosting another to celebrate the first anniversary of the launch of Xbox One in the country, that will be on September 23rd.

Fans were welcomed with a presentation and quite a lot of playable games, including Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Motorsport 6 and quite a few more. There even was an area featuring Windows 10.

Like the event in Taiwan, it attracted quite the lively crowd of fans, that spent several hours with the games by Microsoft and its partners. Developers were also in attendance, including 343 Industries Frank O’Connor and Turn 10’s Chris Bishop.

Incidentally, In Asia “booth companions” (that we call “booth babes” here in the west) are still a thing, and Microsoft had its own, dressed in Forza garb. Of course there also was the inevitable hunky (maybe? Can’t see under all that armor) Master Chief booth dude.

You can expect to see a lot more from Tokyo Game Show, but for now you can check out the pictures below, courtesy of Microsoft Hong Kong’s Facebook page and Product Manager Ronell Hugh.

Below you can also see more pictures shared on social media by Chris Bishop and Xbox Asia Senior Marketing Lead Barrie Ooi. Apparently the lady in green playing Forza 6 drew quite some attention.
