For the reason that Xbox Collection X launched a 12 months and two days in the past, it’s been inconceivable to get your fingers on one—a state of affairs that’s not more likely to abate any time quickly, because of an ongoing confluence of things. For some well-heeled avid gamers, nevertheless, there’s quickly to be one other avenue. Italian luxurious style home Gucci will quickly promote a small crop personalized Xbox Collection X consoles (plus accoutrements) for $10,000.
That price ticket consists of extra than simply an Xbox Collection X, which generally sells for $499 (nicely, when inventory is on the market). For one, it’s considerably snazzier than the standard matte black providing. Gucci’s contains a laser-engraved sample that, to cite from the advertising copy, is “an evolution of the unique Gucci Rhombi design from the ‘30s [in which] the GG sample turns into a wordplay—not solely representing Guccio Gucci’s initials but in addition the gaming phrase ‘Good Recreation.’”

You’ll be able to even engrave statements, like “Eat the Wealthy” or “Joe Biden Forgive Pupil Mortgage Debt Problem,” for a small price.)

And final however not least, this bundle comes with a bag.
Gucci will promote 100 consoles at a few of its highest-profile brick-and-mortar shops—together with the Wooster Avenue outpost in Manhattan, the luxurious Gucci Circolo in Milan, and the Shibuya location in Tokyo—on Wednesday, November 17.
