First Launch Day Xbox One Protected by Sharks

The world’s first Xbox One console is too precious to keep under lock and key which is why Microsoft decided to have 20 sand tiger sharks guard the gem. Currently, Kelly Tarlton’s Sea Life Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand has the submerged console in a water resistant container guarded by tiger sharks.

Technically this is not the first Xbox One to be sold on the market, as retailer Target had a “system error” that caused a few consoles to be sent out early to a number of consumers.

The glitch is not dampening the spirit of Microsoft New Zealand as they will be happily handing over the said Xbox One to a new owner at a midnight launch event.

Notable celebrations will ring out across the globe as more than 10,000 retail locations in 13 countries will open their doors on Nov. 22 at 12:01 am to welcome fans.

As launch day nears the anticipation for many gamers grows more intense by the second. Though, only one lucky individual will be able to boast that their console was safeguarded by sharks fans across the world will not doubt be flaunting their posh new hardware to family and friends for some time to come.
