Tips for getting donated/renting/borrowing multiple consoles?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I'm really excited that my company is hosting Extra Life event for the first time this year. Does anyone have any tips on how/where to have consoles/games donated for a day? We're allowing participants to bring their own systems, obviously, but we'd like to have a collection of consoles ready for people to join in on at their leisure. We are in the process of contacting Sony and Nintendo directly. We've gotten a response from Microsoft, but they won't donate any Xbox's unless they have a representative on-site, and since our company doesn't have an existing representative from Microsoft directly, that's not an option.


Any tips are welcome! Thanks!

Heya @Joe_K!


On the Microsoft front are you sure they required someone from your company to be a designated Microsoft Rep..?


Typically that statement would be true.  But they usually mean one of them from the Microsoft Store needs to be "along for the ride" to keep a tacit eye on the gear.  As well as wholly participating/collaborating in the festivities.


Like I throw a pretty decent sized game-a-thon each year and our local Microsoft Store will bring several Gamez Cases and more and there are at least half a dozen of them in attendance at our event.  In my case they have half a dozen plus of "their representatives" onsite.


I would think hope that at least one of their store reps would be willing to be in attendance at your event to make that equipment loan possible.
