Xbox Stay N'Play: Is this the ultimate gamer's getaway?

THIS could be the ultimate gamer's getaway.

Days ahead of the release of the Xbox One X in Australia, Xbox Australia has announced plans to open the doors to the Xbox Stay N' Play promising a boutique, gaming-themed sleepover experience.

Situated in front of the iconic Sydney skyline in Pirrama Park, Pyrmont, the first-of-its-kind establishment will open its doors to fans from Friday, November 3 until Sunday, November 5.

There will be four suites themed around some of the biggest games available on the console - including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin's Creed Origins and Minecraft.

Xbox Stay N' Play will give gamers the first chance to play the Xbox One X.

Once guests check in using their Xbox Gamertag (or create a new one on site), guest services and amenities include:

• A private themed suite for you and a friend to play the Xbox One X, ahead of launch
• Super high resolution 4K HDR televisions for super sharp and smooth gameplay
• Dolby Atmos enabled headsets for crystal clear, cinema quality immersive audio
• Full selection of Xbox One X Enhanced Games, available from the Gold Standard concierge

Reservations are now open, with overnight accommodation available on a first come, first serve basis, with check-in at 8pm and check out the following morning at 8am. You can book here.

Suites will also be available for daytime usage with fans able to book a two-hour slot for them and a friend.

With demand for sleepovers expected to be high, the Xbox Stay N' Play will also feature a lobby offering walk-in gameplay from 8am until 8pm each day.

"Much like the One X, we've designed the Stay N' Play to give players the most immersive gaming experience possible," said Jeremy Hinton, Business Group Lead at Xbox Australia.

"Each room has been designed with our fans in mind. We hope the experience gives them the chance to experience true 4K gaming in a genuinely unique environment, days before the product is available in stores."

Xbox One X is available for pre-order now at the Microsoft Store and retailers, including JB Hi Fi, EB Games and Harvey Norman.
