White Xbox One raises £5,000 for GamesAid

The rare white Xbox One has been sold for £5,000, GamesAid has announced.

The commemorative special edition machine was only made available to Microsoft employees that worked on the console. It features a special Gamertag and the words ‘I Made This’ written on the front of the machine. It also featured a white Xbox One controller and a black Kinect.

It was donated by an anonymous member of the Xbox team.

By our reckoning, £5,000 is the largest the charity has received from an individual donor.

A GamesAid spokesperson said: “An anonymous member of the UK Xbox team wanted to use their Exclusive Launch Team Commemorative Special Edition Xbox One to raise money for a good cause. GamesAid are delighted that the console raised £5000 which will be used to support small UK based children and young person’s charities”

And an Xbox spokesperson added: “An anonymous member of the UK Xbox team wanted to use their Exclusive Launch Team Commemorative Special Edition Xbox One to raise money for a good cause. We are delighted that the console is set to raise a substantial amount for GamesAid who will use funds raised to support charities who help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people.”
