Black Panther Gets Special Xbox One X, But You Probably Can't Have One
Now where's the Shuri-themed PS4 Pro?
Listen up, Black Panther fans. To celebrate the release of Black Panther on digital and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Marvel has teamed up with Microsoft to create a limited-edition Xbox One X console. The best part? They're giving it away for free. Acquiring one is a long-shot, because only five of these machines exist. But your only chance to get your hands on one is by entering the sweepstakes (US and Canada only). You can enter for a chance to win once each day between now and May 29, 2018.
The machine itself is decked out in patterns of black, gray, and gold, with the faces of Black Panther and Killmonger etched on both the console and the two controllers that come with it. Each console comes with a physical copy of Black Panther in 4K Ultra HD.
Seeing as a standard Xbox One X console only comes with one controller and costs $500, winning this limited-edition one could save you a nice chunk of change. The console can run a growing list of Xbox One X-enhanced games in 4K. It can also make older games that have been updated--like Red Dead Redemption--look incredible. It can also play back 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs.
In GameSpot's Xbox One X review, Jimmy Thang wrote, "While the Xbox One X is an expensive box, from a hardware standpoint, you're getting a very powerful and capable machine. You'll be hard pressed to build a comparably powerful PC for $500. On top of that, you get a 4K HDR Blu-ray player, which can cost several hundred dollars on its own."
Not a bad deal for the five lucky winners of this limited-edition Black Panther Xbox One X console.
