If you're in the market for an Xbox One system that looks nothing like the ones that you can find in stores, San Diego Comic-Con later this week is the place to be.
Microsoft has announced the "Collectible Console Sweepstakes" that will see it give away a number of uniquely designed Xbox One consoles, each featuring a different game or game franchise. Among these consoles are Halo, Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Forza Horizon 2 systems. You can see all of them below.
Entering to win is relatively simple, provided you're attending SDCC or know someone who is. All you need to do is visit the Xbox Gaming Lounge at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, where you'll find all of the exclusive consoles up for grabs, and tweet a picture of your favorite using the hashtags #XboxOne and #XboxSweeps. 20 people will then be selected to win an Xbox One and accompanying Kinect.
If you're not able to make it, there is an alternative way of entering which involves mailing your entry info to Microsoft. Full details on how to do so are outlined here. Additionally, a Nerdist-branded system will be given away online through the official Xbox Twitter account.
Microsoft has only officially released the standard black Xbox One to consumers. A special all-white system was given away to Microsoft employees who worked on the system prior to its launch, and a few were later sold on eBay for charity. It's rumored that the company will eventually sell the white version publicly, but it has announced no formal plans to begin doing so.
