Microsoft hasn’t had any trouble selling the Xbox One since the temporary price drop went into effect, but if you still need some convincing, maybe a play session with Halo 5: Guardians will do the trick. This Saturday, January 3rd, a demo for Halo 5 will be playable at over 50 Best Buy locations between the hours of 3 p.m. – 7 p.m.

The demo will be the same Multiplayer Beta that is available now to Xbox One owners who bought The Master Chief Collection, but Best Buy is promising an impressive setup with an enormous television and great audio that might top whatever is currently sitting in your living room.

Be sure to head to this link and click “Find a participating store” to see if the demo will be available in or around your area.

Even if your local Best Buy isn’t participating, you can still snag an exclusive Halo 5 poster by preordering the game. This will also ensure you a Halo 5 art book when the game launches next year. The standard edition costs $59.99, the Limited Edition costs $99.99 and the recently announced Collector’s Edition will retail for $249.99.

If you do own an Xbox One, the multiplayer beta will be available to play until January 18th, 2015.
