So you want a white Xbox One?

There is no denying, those white Xbox Ones are pretty. Sure, the Kinect may still be black, but that white console and controller with the engraving of “I Made This” really is pretty cool. And now, you can get your hands on it, if you’ve got the money.

I’m already humming and hawing about the price of next generation consoles. I really want both, but it’s going to take some serious budgeting to make that happen. So this commemorative console is definitely going to be out of my price range.

UK based charity, GamesAid has The Xbox One White Exclusive Launch Team Commemorative Special Edition on auction. That’s right, the console that’s exclusive to members of the console’s launch team is available. Bidding goes until Friday, so how much can it be? Well, at the moment it’s going for £120 100. That’s $193 000 or R1 974 939.

It’s bad enough I’m wondering how much food I really need to eat to be able to afford my new console as it is. For that price, I could buy a beautiful new house. I’m glad the proceeds will go to charity, but wow, some gamers have far too much money. Still, I’m jealous – that console is ridiculously pretty.

    I want a black console to fit in with my entertainment centre. My 360 sticks out quite a bit at the moment. But still – 0_0 at the current bids!!

    What to buy when you have way too much money. A white version of the same console for R7k, for R2000k. For that price, I could get my black console encrusted in diamonds. And solid gold.

      You could probably paint it convincingly white for less than 1k…

        Or get the black covers moulded, and do a proper white one. Or even get an aluminium case. Much, much less. And it’ll be one of a kind, not even “Super awesome ultra special wtf kind of long name is this” edition, of which like a few hundred exist.

            You know, you could still donate to charity, and get a white or aluminium Xbox if you had that money. Really. Just for an “I Made This” engraving, which in itself is a lie.

        But who decides on which kid gets the shiny white xbox to play with. OH WAIT. ITS WHITE. Apartheid Xbox. Hatutaki kitu cha kufanya na mambo nyeupe. Magharibi lazima kuweka utamaduni wa magharibi. Tutaweza kuchukua Xbox nyeusi.

    Troll alert:
    So just wondering, if it’s exclusive to the launch team that means its a console that’s been used by the launch team right? Otherwise it’s just a white console that wasn’t good enough to be used by the launch team…? So 2mill for a “used” console???

    I love the white console, but the controller is damn ugly in white…not that the black one is pretty, it just looks better.

    Also, for R2mil, I want a white Kinect.

      White does look good on controller! White and black thumbsticks ect! looks awesome! black and red would look better though.

        I think the part that puts me off is that black section with the X-orb at the top. I don’t even like it on the black controller. I guess the white emphasizes it even more.

        I agree, a red and black one will be stunning.
