Comic-Con 2014: Custom Xbox Ones With Halo, Dragon Age Designs Up for Grabs

20 different exclusive versions of the Xbox One will be available in a sweepstakes later this week.

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.

GameSpot will be bringing you coverage straight from SDCC, which kicks off this Thursday, July 24, and runs through July 27. For some idea of what to expect from the show's gaming presence, check out our roundup of all the gaming panels, tournaments, and playable titles that will be at the show here.

Which of the systems below would you most like to get your hands on? Let us know in the comments below.

I as a Medically Disabled/Retired U.S. Army Veteran at only age 31 years due to a mortar round and several back surgeries would like to cast my vote for in all caps & I quote "DRAGON AGE INQUISITION".........and yes I did just show my hand but, in my defense I earned it & I really really love what I have seen of this game so far. Plus they're the only game company that actually writes their fans back regardless of how busy they may be or how dumb your question might sound, they're always interested in getting your feedback which I find to be a very humble quality in any person much less a company & in my opinion if anyone deserves the promotional feedback of having their game logo on an Xbox One for limited time sale it's Bioware!!

I like the Dragon Age one and I am for one am entering even though it's a million or billion to one shot. At least I tried.

That Evolve one looks really nice, not too much but not too little and it's a very cool design.

It's just a bunch of stupid console skins. Look at the power button!

In terms of design I'd probably say Evolve looks the nicest

I'm not sure if it's the console's fault, but many of these designs are very uninspired. Some are certainly nice, but I sure hope the future ones are a lot more creative.

Sunset overdrive one looks epic!

The sunset overdrive one looks sick, but forza's is the best looking console

I would prefer the Titanfall one, but since I have little kids the Skylanders or the Disney Infinity would be pretty awesome.

Too bad the system doesn't stand Vertical, the photo shots at those camera angles make the systems appear even more dull

"Which of the systems below would you most like to get your hands on? "

My answer is NONE.

TBH Beggars can't be choosers...I'd even take the Kinect Sports one if it meant a free X bone. Though I hate to say it but some comments below are right.. mostly it seems just box art rather than anything original.

The dragon age one is the one I would like to own, as a fan of the series. Although it is terribly designed. It's just the games cover plastered on the top and front.


No unique artwork, at least?

Those look awesome as collector's items, and horrible as adult living-room hardware. Maybe man-cave works ok... The Halo one is by far my favorite

SMH Microsoft should bundle THAT Halo MC Collection X1 console WITH the game. They would sell MILLIONS.

The Halo and Titanfall ones are cool, that Forza one is hideous tho.  And who the hell would get a Kinect Sports Rivals skin on their system????

I like 'The Evil Within' Xbox One but it would be better if the top right corner wasn't blank.

Why is the top right always blank??

Bah.  Check the back to school sales for some cheap water colors and make your own design.

I like the second from the middle row, but they look good at least in the image.

@Stogin They aren't skins... Read the article. It's twenty unique custom painted xbox ones.

@Zloth2 Have you ever seen an xbox one? It's blank because it's a textured section of the xbox that would look absolutely horrid if they tried to put any type of image or detail on it. It would be deformed and look weird depending on the angle you viewed it at. Go look up an image of the one on google. I'm surprised they even painted that section because all the skin makers completely avoid it.

@Zloth2 Yeah, it seems like they were kinda lazy with it and didn't really put effort into actually giving each one a customized design.
