X-Box makes a splash down under


Lovely promo stunt from Microsoft in Sydney at the weekend, with almost 3000 people turning out for the X-Box Water Bomb Challenge.

Over 55,000 water balloons were thrown, eclipsing the world record of just shy of 51,000 set in Spain last year. The stunt was to celebrate X-Box 360’s one-month birthday and raised much needed funds for the Coogee Surf Lifesaving Club, with five dollars from every water balloon thrower's registration fee donated to the club.
