Remember how we talked about an extremely rare white Xbox One that made an appearance over on eBay not too long ago, where this next generation console was offered by Microsoft’s Xbox Live’s programming head Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb? Well, the whole idea of placing this rare Xbox One model on auction would be to raise dough for the Wounded Warrior Project. Apparently, this particular auction has finally ended, where the anonymous bidder parted with $11,300, allowing him or her to enjoy some next generation goodness a short few days before the standard issue Xbox One is launched later this coming Friday.
I guess the $11,300 winning bid stood its ground since we talked about it last week. Is it worth that much? Far from it, but at least every single penny of this winning bid will be channeled to assist the Wounded Warrior Project, whose objective is to “honor and empower wounded warriors by raising awareness, helping injured service members aid and assist each other and providing programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.” The white Xbox One is extremely rare, since it has been given away to those who happen to work in Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment division.
