Xbox 360 Launch Team 2005 Special Edition-- Posted by on November 27 01:06 EST
Some of you might remember the special edition. It's probably one of the most (if not THE most) rare retail (original) Xbox system.
It's a translucent green Xbox with a 'Launch Team 2001' jewel signed by Bill Gates and it came with unique 'big' translucent green controllers (the PAL and Halo1/2 green special editions came with green 's' controllers). It was sold (not even given for free) to Xbox-division employees back in 2001.
Well it looks like Microsoft did something similar for the Xbox 360. Below is a picture of the 'Launch Team 2005' Xbox 360 special edition, courtesy John Porcaro, a PR manager on the Xbox team at Microsoft. Check out the USB door, it says "I made this". The top and bottom grill/hard drive are green and the controller has some green as well. It also has a on the harddrive top.
(unlike the 'Xbox Launch Team 2001') these were given for free to the Xbox Team ... knowing what such a special edition could go for on ebay it's not a small gift from Microsoft
