The original story appears below:
Microsoft is cooking up all sorts of new Xbox One models, according to a new report, including a white variant, a console with a 1TB hard drive, and even a machine without a Blu-ray drive.
A white version of the Xbox One already exists, with the lighter units made available at launch to the development team behind Microsoft's latest console. A few of the white machines were auctioned for charity, with one even racking up an impressive $11,300.
The NeoGAF poster says Microsoft will launch the white Xbox One to coincide with the release of Sunset Overdrive. Could it be a limited-edition machine? The person leaking the information also released a picture of an upcoming Titanfall-themed Xbox One. If true, the machine will presumably launch alongside the game on March 11.
The poster also said Microsoft will release a firmware update for the Xbox One in March that will fix the machine's oft-criticised party chat system, and other social features. Microsoft pledged to improve these systems back in December.
GameSpot has contacted Microsoft to ask if it can comment on any of these rumours.
