Microsoft’s Latest Limited-Edition Game of Thrones Xbox One Console is a Priceless Work of Art
Everybody loves Game of Thrones, but it looks like Microsoft loves it more. Now that the phenomenal season of the fantasy drama television series is over, the American platform holder has decided to celebrate the occasion by giving its eighth generation game console a makeover. The new, very limited edition Game of Thrones Xbox One looks stately, but you would have to be extremely lucky to be able to get your hands on it, as it is not designed to empty the wallets of the fans.
You'd Have to be Extremely Lucky to Get Your Hands on This Ridiculous Limited-Edition Game of Thrones Xbox One Console
You don’t really need a Game of Thrones Xbox One console, but Microsoft would like you to try your luck for one anyway. This limited-edition console, which commemorates the sixth season of one of the most popular shows in the run right now, is only for those who are willing to try their luck and play along the contests that Microsoft is currently running through Xbox France’s social media channels. It is unclear if this promotional contest is open to all or if there are location-based restrictions, but I’d say if you think you have got any luck, you better start retweeting already.
There are only six of these distinctively designed Game of Thrones Xbox One consoles in the world, and Microsoft appears to be giving them away on Xbox France’s social media pages on each platform; Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. According to the brand's Twitter account, retweeting the tweet shared below or composing your own tweet with the "XboxLovesGoT" hashtag will get you a ticket in the drawing. On Facebook, you will have to like and comment on the giveaway post on Xbox France’s page.

The console’s design is that of the Game of Thrones logo that is seen at the end of the TV show’s intro; three big old metal rings that spin around the logo have been placed at the top surface of the system, and the console itself bears the trademark. A lustered copper-colored finish and intricate detail work up the console’s kingship. The controller that comes with the console has also been stylized with the same Game of Thrones theme.
