Microsoft (MSFT) employees who worked on the Xbox One will be getting a white version of the console from the company.
The Verge reports that this information was leaked on Reddit by a user who said that the white Xbox One is a gift for Microsoft employees who helped create the console. Besides being a different color from the original black Xbox One, this limited-edition console has an engraving on the front that says “I made this.”
In addition to getting the console, Microsoft workers will also get a free year of Xbox Live, games and a special achievement on the day of the launch. Earlier this month, Microsoft announced plans to offer gamers Xbox One development kits that allow them to create their own indie games.
The console is scheduled for a November release in the U.S. and Europe and early next year for other markets.
