Following the reveal yesterday of a white Xbox One console that will be available only to Microsoft employees, we now have our first indication that this special version of the console may be for sale alongside the standard black version in the future.
Xbox Live director of programming Larry Hryb, better known as Major Nelson, has been active in the comments of the Reddit post where the image of the white Xbox One surfaced. In response to a question about whether a white Xbox One will ever be sold to the public, Hryb responded, "[M]aybe waaaay in the future."
That's far from a guarantee of anything, but it's more encouraging than Microsoft declining to comment on the matter, as was the case when IGN contacted the company yesterday. We've requested a comment once again in light of what Hryb has said and will update this story with any response we receive.
Microsoft may be hesitant to commit to anything for fear of discouraging gamers from going out and picking up an Xbox One as soon as it's available later this year. One thing we know for sure is, if a white Xbox One is ever made for sale, you can expect it to lack the "I MADE THIS" text found next to the disc drive on the employee-only system.
