The rare white Xbox One system featured as part of a charity eBay auction has fetched $11,300, with all proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides programs and services to injured service members. Seventy total bids were offered for the console.

The white Xbox One is the same limited edition that will be given to all Microsoft IEB employees. It will not be sold anywhere else. The winning bidder also received one year of Xbox Live and copies of first-party launch titles Forza 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, and Crimson Dragon.

The special white Xbox One features a matching white controller, as well as the inscription "I Made This" at the right of the disc tray. Also included with the system are exclusive Day One and Launch Team achievements.

Microsoft previously donated a white Xbox One to the UK charity GamesAid, which was sold on eBay for around $8,000. Suspicious bidding activity forced the listing to end sooner than planned.

The Xbox One will be released across the world on November 22 for $500. The only available color configuration for launch is jet black. For more on the next-generation console, check back with GameSpot tonight at 9 p.m. PDT for a video presentation of the system's user interface and hardware.
