Harrods Has a Gold Xbox One That Costs £6,000

Most people would probably be pretty happy if there was an Xbox One under the tree this holiday season. Still, if you know someone who always likes to go for that little bit extra (and has buckets of money just lying around), you might point them in the direction of this gold Xbox One that Harrods is doing.

 

The console first showed up on Reddit's r/gaming subreddit. The photo posted to Reddit was captured by SirSyhn, who said he saw it at Harrods in London with a price tag of £6,000. According to Crave, there's only one of these, so the person who buys this can sleep soundly knowing they're the only gamer with this particular blinged-out Xbox One in their sitting room.

Microsoft launched the Xbox One in late November but last week confirmed that it had already sold two million units to date. Microsoft sold one million units in the first 24 hours of availability. The company on Thursday announced that in the 18 days since launch, the Xbox One was selling an average of 111,111 units per day worldwide. According to Amazon, peak demand saw 1,000 units ordered every minute.

The Xbox One launched in North America, parts of Europe, Australia and Brazil on November 22 (it will hit Japan and the rest of Europe in 2014). Just three days later, Microsoft announced that it had sold one million consoles in less than 24 hours. The newest Xbox features an octo-core x86 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 500 GB of storage and a Blu-ray/DVD drive. It also comes with Microsoft's brand new Kinect 2 sensor as well as a redesigned Xbox controller.

    There's only one? I hope the disc drive didn't fail on it.

    I wonder which would catch the eye... the graphics on screen or the dazzle from the bling box....
