Italian luxury fashion house Gucci is soon selling a small number of Xbox Series X consoles (plus equipment) for $10,000.
The first collaboration between Xbox and Gucci takes the House’s beginnings in the world of sports and entertainment to the next level with 100 hand-numbered platforms.
And since the Xbox Series X launched a year ago, it’s been hard to get one. The situation is not likely to change any time soon, thanks to a different set of factors. However, for some players with financial ability, Gucci has the solution.
The price includes more than just the Xbox Series X, which usually retails for $499. For example, the device is somewhat more impressive than the typical matte black.
The platform features the laser-engraved Gucci logo, which, in the marketing version’s words, is an evolution of the original Gucci Rhombi design from the 1930s in which the GG pattern has become a play on as it represents the Guccio Gucci initials and Good Game as well.
Also included with the platform are two Xbox controllers, both in retail matte black except for the Gucci strap with blue and red stripes inspired by the patented House Web under the left grip.
Gucci sells 100 Xbox Series X consoles:
Every new Xbox comes with one controller. You can design your own controller at a Microsoft Store for $70 via the Xbox Design Lab. And you can even engrave phrases for a small fee.
You also get access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with a library of over 100 high-quality games. But it is unclear at this point how long the subscription will last.
This bundle comes with a carry bag by Gucci. The Good Game logo is also featured on the carrying case. While there is the Xbox logo on the other side.
A similar Fake/Not Fake bag that the brand launched in fall 2020 retailed for around $5,800, which helps explain the high cost of this specific Xbox bundle.
Gucci sells 100 platforms in some of its most prestigious stores. Including its store in New York City, Beverly Hills, Mexico City, Milan, London, Berlin, Beijing or Tokyo on Wednesday, November 17.
It is noteworthy that Gucci is not the only brand helping Microsoft celebrate the 20th anniversary of the emergence of the Xbox. The collaboration also included Adidas.
