See This Gold-Plated Xbox One X That You Can't Buy Anywhere
The console with the Midas touch.
Microsoft is giving away an extremely shiny new console in August, as part of its Xbox Quests promotion. Finishing a pair of goals on Xbox Live within the next few weeks will enter you to win an Xbox One X plated in 24k gold.
As detailed on the Xbox Live Gold Quest site, you'll need to complete both quests between August 14 and August 27 to be entered to win the gold Xbox One X. The first is to play at least 30 minutes of multiplayer every day by August 20. The second is to score seven new achievements between August 21-27. Finishing both will get you a "mystery prize" as well as an entry into a drawing for the console.
Microsoft showed off the console in a tweet promoting the giveaway, in all its resplendent glory. It looks like it would be right at home in Las Vegas or Trump Tower. This is the only way to score the unique collector's item, as Microsoft has not announced any plans to actually sell gold-plated Xboxes.
If you use your Xbox for video games instead of status symbols, make sure you pick up a couple of Games With Gold before they expire: Dead Space 3 and Death Squared. For Honor, Forza Horizon 2, and Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two are also available now.
