Shiny white Xbox One revealed – but there’s a catch

Monday, 26th August 2013 20:27 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Microsoft will be handing out a white coloured version of its Xbox One console when it comes out this November free of cost. The only catch? You need to work for them to get one; however the color may be made available to the public in the far distant future.

The special version of the console will be distributed exclusively among the workers of the company as it feels that it’ll be a package that’s “unique for our team.” The console will also come with a free one year subscription of Xbox Live as well as access to all first party games releasing on the device.

A source close to IGN has confirmed that this isn’t a rumor and is very much happening once the next-gen console launches later this year.  The special edition console’s disc drive has the text “I MADE THIS” engraved over it. It looks rather slick and it would be awesome if Microsoft intends to release this variant for the public in future.

The firm’s Major Nelson said on reddit that the color could be made available to non-Microsoft employees “maybe waaaay in the future.”

    “Access to all single player games” or access to all first party games?

    Its funny how the world knows they launch in November but they wont say the date because they want to have more than the 1 million sony will have at launch. . Maybe 4 million. . So I guess when they have those numbers close at hand they will say November 1 2013 like we all know anyway

    Looks great. If it came out in white and the black was an exclusive color, we’d ooh ahh the black. All in all its a nice looking system. November 5 can’t get here soon enough. ( I’m guessing November 5th for its launch)

    Too bad it won’t be commercialised.

    Why? Don’t you put the kinect on top of your TV? Most TV’s are black.

    Take it easy, it’s just my preference on having everything match. Plus I can’t put anything on top of my TV it’s to thin.

    This Xbox One set up is similar to my 360. Except I have the black slimline console with a white Kinect sensor…

    @23 Calm down, if you’d have thought ahead and became a Microsoft employee, you would be getting the white version. :)

    Wouldn’t fancy a job at Microsoft now, specially in the games department… That’ll be getting reduced in size if the Xbone dumps.
