Taco Bell's new contest means an Xbox One X is just a quesarito away


That’s just 83 cents per teraflop!

At E3, we learned that the price of the Xbox One X is $500. Five Franklins. It’s a lot of dough. But, some lucky folks who are willing to eat Taco Bell’s dough can nab it for just one percent of the normal cost.

Taco Bell and Microsoft just revealed a promotion where they’re giving away an Xbox One X every 10 minutes from August 31 to October 4. That’s more than 5,000 consoles. Each prize pack will come up the Xbox One X, a copy ofForza Motorsport 7, and a three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass.

The $5 steak quesarito box is prominently featured in this promotion, as each meal comes with a unique code to text in for an entry. For those who aren’t keen on Taco Bell’s food, there will be a legally-mandated alternate method of entering the contest (and it won’t cost any money).

This is hardly Taco Bell’s first foray into giving away the hot new video game tech. In past years, the fast food chain has also run similar contests for the launch of the PlayStation 4 in 2013, Destiny PS4 bundles in 2014, gold PS4s in 2015, and PlayStation VR in 2016. Now it’s Microsoft’s turn to help move some taco boxes off the strength of the newest Xbox.
