Another white Xbox One listed on eBay; proceeds to benefit Wounded Warrior Project

Last week, the UK-based charity Gamesaid put a rare white Xbox One for auction via eBay and it ended up raising £5,000 to help fund programs that assist disadvantaged and disabled children. Today, the U.S eBay site has a listing for another one of these white Xbox One consoles and again the proceeds of the auction will go to a good cause.

The eBay listing shows that the money from the winning bid will go to the Wounded Warrior Project, a group that is dedicated to help injured military service members. The white Xbox One was donated by Microsoft's Xbox Live's programming head Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. Already the auction has generated a top bid of over $11,000 as of this writing. The bidding will end on November 18th.

If you have a lot of money and really want to get this very rare item, keep in mind that the white Xbox One also comes with one year of free Xbox Live Gold service along with a copy of each of Microsoft's first party Xbox One games. The white versions are given to the members of the Xbox One launch team at Microsoft for free.

I bet they'll do limited edition colors later. Maybe not white again but others. A nice grey or silver would also be nice I bet.

Maybe it'll be offered in the future. MS acknowledged with the last gen that customization was important (their "remix generation" slogan), so perhaps they have this in mind for the future.

Nice one, I guess some of the Xbox team are acting selfless and auctioning up their exclusive systems? That's pretty cool. They ought to have the whole team sign one and sell it, that would drive the price up.
