If you’ve been an Xbox fan for long enough, you might remember the iconic moment of CES 2001 when the original Xbox was revealed … by none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Wouldn’t you like to hang a beautiful oil painting of this very specific moment on your home wall?
Strange question, sure, but Xbox and The Rock seem to think some people might be interested. Enough that they made it the centerpiece of a giveaway tied to today’s Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations (admittedly alongside a glorified commercial for The Rock’s latest film, Red Notice).
During an appearance during the Anniversary Stream, The Rock encouraged fans to visit xboxvault.com to enter a contest for “hundreds” of prizes, including the aforementioned oil painting, custom Xbox hardware. on the theme of the red notice, Game Pass cards and many others. As of this writing, the Xbox Vault website is not yet up and running, so it’s unclear what the criteria are for the giveaway, but we’ll update this once it’s available.
New Xbox 20th Anniversary Backward Compatible Games
This is far from the first time The Rock has done giveaways and other promotions with Xbox, including one he did last year to donate Xbox Series X consoles to children’s hospitals.
There were a handful of other announcements today related to Xbox’s anniversary celebrations, including the addition of over 70 new games to Xbox backward compatibility and the surprise early release of Halo Infinite multiplayer.
