In amongst the masses of PS4s in our dungeon here at Bigpipe we found a single solitary Xbox one.  

He was pretty upset at being 'different' to all the other consoles around him, constantly getting teased for his bulky body and restrictive DRM, so we decided to release him into the wild via our friends at trademe and hopefully give somebody some sweet gaming fun.

All proceeds go to Kidscan charity.

Happy bidding!

Well as it probably lacks HDMI-CEC like the 360 it will sit as unused as my 360 does as I have to stuff around finding the HDMI switch remote to change over to it.

Xboxs dont talk. They hardly listen. scoota52 (9 9 positive feedback) 5:32 pm, Thu 7 Aug

 

Maybe you just never found the right Xbox one to kinect with? 5:34 pm, Thu 7 Aug

Classic!

Cmon you guys, bid big! It's a great charity, it's not just about what a Xbox is worth. If you might give away $200 to charity you should at least be considering bidding $750 for this beastie.

I'd bid but I don't use the X1 I already own!

As I dont get the reciept for a charity donation, bidding higher than the retail price is foolish.

There is no restrictive DRM that were originally planned.

Good to know, but the ps4s don't believe him and keep teasing him about it. So sad.

Same. Spend money on those who matter to you who need it. I could name many people that i would rather give $200 to than some random person i dont know. Oh wait, i might get a RAK award from my primary school teacher.

congrats richms on winning the XBone!  

I'm sure it will be a lot happier sitting next to just one PS4 instead of several dozen.
