Microsoft gave out white Xbox One units to developers who worked on the console, and now some ten of the special-edition systems have landed on popular auction site eBay.
Bidding for the most "affordable" system starts at $1500 with a Buy It Now price of $2000. Other auctions include starting prices of $1700, $1800, $2000, $2600, $2700, and $3000. There's even one listing that includes a system and games like Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 for around $3500.
The special-edition white Xbox Ones are indeed rare. The only way you got one was if you worked at the Xbox team at Microsoft in the lead-up to launch. The company has no announced plans to sell the console publicly, so paying a premium is the only way to get one, at least for now.
This isn't the first time a white Xbox One has been put up for auction on eBay. In November, Microsoft auctioned off a white console plus one year of Xbox Live and five games for charity. The console sold for $11,300 and all proceeds went to the Wounded Warrior Project.
