Microsoft is sending one S'pore gamer on zero-gravity flight
Microsoft's prize for its latest Xbox promotion is truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip for any gamer or geek.

SINGAPORE - Usually when a press statement says "once-in-a-lifetime", sceptical journalists (like us) are likely to remove the adjective. This time, however, we'll gladly call Microsoft's prize for its latest Xbox promotion a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Microsoft is sending one lucky Singaporean, and his or her guest, on a High Flyers trip that'll see them jet around the globe to visit game studios, watch Super Bowl live, and - more importantly - experience zero-gravity on board a parabolic flight.

Yes, a real zero-gravity experience, this one to be exact.

The itinerary for the Xbox One High Flyers tour reads like a dream trip for any gamer or geek:

Day 1 - Visit Ubisoft Singapore's Assassin's Creed sound studio to record your voice
Day 2 - Zero Gravity flight
Day 3 - Attend Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona
Day 4 - Depart for Vancouver, Canada
Day 5 - Visit the EA Sports Studio for a Motion Capture session, followed by a visit to Capcom Studios
Day 6 - Visit Turn 10 Studios and Xbox HQ in Seattle
Day 7 - Visit Insomniac Studios and get a joy ride on the Warthog
Day 8 - Travel to United Kingdom for lunch at Playground Games
Day 9 - Attend the MerseySide Derby
Day 10 - Travel Home
