With new consoles usually comes some pretty insane marketing stunts. The latest comes from Xbox who set a Guinness World Record for the largest projected video game display with an Xbox Series X — on a mountain.
We set the @GWR record for the largest projected video game display in the world by playing Destiny 2: Beyond Light on a mountaintop using Xbox Series X. (Yes, you read that correctly.)— Xbox (@Xbox) December 15, 2020

The record was set on November 23th at Copper Mountain in Frisco, Colorado. To celebrate the launch Destiny 2: Beyond Light, three projectors with a combined 120,000 lumens were rigged together with an Xbox Series X. The result was a whopping 180.15 feet by 105.97 feet video game display with a total area of 19,090 square feet (1,773.6 square meters). Not a bad way to end off a day of snowboarding…
If you want to watch the video in a higher resolution, you can check it out on YouTube as well (Xbox isn’t allowing embedding on this one for some reason).
Oh, and that Xbox sweater is dope. Anyone know where to find one? Because I REALLY NEED ONE!
