Back in August, we learned about a special edition white model of the Xbox One console that was going to be given to employees working in Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business division as part of a gift package. Now Microsoft is offering one lucky (and financially well-off) eBay bidder a chance to own the only white Xbox One unit to be offered to the general public. The auction will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity geared toward helping wounded service members and their families.
The auction, which is limited to bidders in the United States, includes the white Xbox One, complete with Kinect and controller, one year of Xbox Live, and a copy of each of the first party launch titles (Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Project Spark and Crimson Dragon). Not too shabby, right?
But if you want to own this piece of video gaming history, you'd better be prepared to get your check book ready. At the time of this post, the auction was up to $11,300.00 after 72 bids. There is still just over six days left to go on the auction. All bidders must contact the seller before their bid is accepted.
Should you be the generous wining bidder on this auction, you can expect delivery by the November 22 launch date of Xbox One. Microsoft was nice enough to pick up the tab on the shipping.
