Some people are actually selling their Xbox One Day One achievement code

It's not a shock to learn that people who bought the Xbox One console on Friday are now selling them for what they hope is a higher price on eBay. Even a couple of the rare white Launch Team version of the console, given for free to Microsoft Xbox team members, are now popping up on the auction site.

Now there's word that many people who got the Day One edition of the Xbox One are keeping their hardware, but selling off the special Xbox Live achievement code that came with the console. There's a ton of listings for the item on eBay at the moment. Some of them are taking bids as high as $31 and some are going the "buy now" route where the prices can run as high as $89.

Xbox Live achievements are normally earned by completing challenges in Xbox 360 and Xbox One games, which means that they are available to all who buy the games and earn them. However, it appears that some people think that since the Day One version of the Xbox One had a limited production run, that will make getting its code more appealing to so-called "achievement hunters" who want to unlock as much as possible in Microsoft's Xbox Live service.
