    A gold plated XBox, made to look worse for 14x the price... nice job cheesey-blingsters. Constantly amazes me how taste seems to fly out of the window for these things.

    Anyone know if this "XBox Original Programming" is for all XBox's or just the XBone? I've noticed a couple of folks saying "XBox" when they actually mean solely "XBox One".

    If it IS available on the '360 then I'm interested, on the other hand if it's XBone-only then it's of no interest.

    Gold XBone? Yuk. t.a.c.k.y.

    It does? It doesn't even mildly surprise me. Maybe I've met more really wealthy people than you, especially "new" money, where ostentation seems to be almost de rigeur.

    And to be honest, if I thought I could find idiots prepared to part with £6000 for one, I'd buy a few myself and find a gold-plating service.

    Well at least Gold XBone seems more like an investment opportunity for people to buy.

    Yeah, depending on the quantity of gold it might be the only XBone that doesn't appreciate.

    And, obviously, it looks really stylish.

    XBox live may well become a target for TV Licensing goons if they talk about "programmes, and schedules for Live" broadcast, unlike Netflix or Love Film, which as they are on demand and not broadcast are TV License exempt
