Video: Microsoft’s Alex Noon Unboxes Exclusive White Xbox One

It’s just like a normal unboxing video of the Xbox One, but this one’s a version you can’t buy.

Microsoft employee Alex Noon uploaded an unboxing video of the white Xbox One limited to Microsoft’s 2013 launch team. An associate producer at Microsoft, Noon is one of the few people in the world with a white Xbox One as opposed to the default black. Noon walks through the unpacking of the console and the other items employees received with their Xbox One systems.

The white Xbox One is not available for sale to the public, and charity auctions of the exclusive white version have seen high bids. Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb auctioned one for the Wounded Warrior Project, and the winning bid was $11,300. GamesAid’s auction of the white system raised £5000. The system comes with a white on black controller, and according to Noon the texture is different. The black controller has a smooth, plastic feel while the white controller has a “rubbery” texture, which he says makes it more comfortable to grip. Emblazoned on the controller and the console reads “I Made This 2013.” Microsoft employees also receive Xbox One launch titles Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, and Zoo Tycoon.

The white Xbox One controller is probably the coolest part of the limited edition. You sadly won’t see it in a store, and you may never get close enough to one to see it in person, so I guess that makes this unboxing video either at least on par, maybe even a bit better, than the majority of Xbox One unboxing videos.
