Limited Edition 'Gotham City' Xbox 360 Console

It's apart of a sweepstakes, so unless the winner decided to sell it, your only chance of having this is by participating in the competition.

Get your hands on the best gaming system this side of Gotham City. This limited-edition Xbox 360 is hand-dipped using ColorWare's proprietary coating system, and features a durable UV clear coating to help protect the specialized design from fading and everyday wear. These consoles are created one at a time—and you can bet your fellow gamers will wish they had one. (Estimated Retail Value: $1,000)

FYI, you have the chance to win the console. They aren't selling it.

It would cost $1000 because of the customisation, even though I don't agree with the price tag.

It just looks like a sticker...

There's nothing that makes it different to a standard xbox slim with a sticker on the side...

Why the hell would it be worth $1000 ??

Because of a sticker?

Edit:-

Enter codes from specially marked Mtn Dew products to collect points you can redeem for sweepstakes entries or limited-edition gear.

So basically everywhere that isn't Europe is in it haha

ROFL at the estimated retail value..

1G for a lick of paint on a plastic box..

Not saying its not a fine looking console.. i even despise the kiddy batman hero but i still think thats i nice looking console.. I just hate when companies over exaggerate prices for giveaways to make it seem like your getting a shitload of worth when really.. Your getting a 200 dollar console plus a 100 dollar paintjob of batman at the most..

Actually, I've seen Mountain Dew in plenty of vending machines here in England, so I might get one seeing as I've never tried it before.

But it does look like a cheap sticker though. :P

I could understand if it was a paint job, but what makes me think sticker, is how the picture just abruptly ends towards the left end of the console, if it was painted it wouldn't simply stop like that.

It's either a high end transfer, or a sticker, either way it's not worth $1000

I should get a black glass case for my xbox and kick it across the room. Then it'll look like that.

Lol @ $1000, no xbox is worth that. I could see an exception if it was like the star wars limited edition xbox that had 320gb (might have been 360gb, I forget)hard drive and a higher quality paint job.

It's not even worth my time to enter to win.

I've had the same xbox 360 from the beginning five years ago, and I would rather keep that then take the limited edition console.

The $1000 price tag is due to the rarity of the console. Other than that, it is just another Xbox 360 without the custom artwork.

It maybe has that estimated retail value because of how rare it is?

Also, I would do anything to win that console. Shame I live in the UK.
