Microsoft has apparently decided to take this to its logical extreme with a special Game of Thrones console to celebrate the Season 6 finale. The new console, built on your standard Xbox One 1TB device, comes decorated as though it were manufactured by the finest tradesmen in Westeros.
The Game of Thrones Xbox One comes bedecked in a stylish black and bronze number, with a familiar pattern across the entire console. The device even comes with three bands that curve out of the top and back in, which, whilst impractical, really adds to the effect. You can even find the sigils of the four major houses; Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, and Baratheon etched upon its surface.
The only major downside with the release is that there are only six of these Game of Thrones Xbox One consoles, and they can’t be bought. They have to be won via a competition through Xbox France. This is the same group that released a frankly stunning Stark Industries Xbox One last year.
Whether anyone outside of France can apply to the competition or not is still unclear, but it can’t hurt if you’re still pining for something Game of Thrones to tide you over until next season or the next book (whenever that finally gets here). If trends are to be continued, chances are they’ll release something else equally as limited next year.
The world is no stranger to special and limited edition consoles, from the Arkham Knight, and Uncharted 4 Playstations to the Halo 5 and Fallout 4 Xboxes, we’ve seen a rapid uptake in the practice in recent years giving us unique devices to show out love for particular franchises in a myriad of forms.
