Following last night's Game of Thrones Season 6 finale, Microsoft has unveiled a new special edition Xbox One that is inspired by HBO's hit fantasy drama. The console features a design that resembles the logo shot from the opening credits of the series. The design even manages to incorporate portions of the iconic astrolabe that soars over the opening credit's animated map of Westeros. The console comes with a similarly themed controller.
Unfortunately for most Game of Thrones fans, the special edition Xbox One console is not getting a retail release. Instead, Microsoft is giving them away as part of a sweepstake via Xbox France's social media pages. It's unclear if there are region restrictions on entering the sweepstakes.
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones chronicles an epic struggle for power in a vast and violent kingdom.
