If you’re planning on getting an Xbox One this christmas, then you’ll probably be disappointed that the only option you’re going to get in colour is black, with the white-version of the Xbox One being exclusively reserved for Microsoft employees that worked on the console. Although there could be a way to get your hands on one of the coveted white Xbox One, with UK charity GamesAid auctioning one off on eBay.

Along with the white Xbox One successful bidders will receive a white controller, Kinect sesnor, headset, a special launch team achievement — alongside the standard day one achievement.

Of course with this being for charity and extremely rare, you can expect the price to rise pretty signficantly with the console already reaching well over £132,000 as of this morning. Of course if you’re hoping to get an Xbox One before everyone else, this isn’t the way to do it, with shipping due to commence on November 22 alongside everyone else who is aiming to get the console.
