A Special Edition Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X Is Coming in June

Sorry, it doesn't come equipped with a neural link port because those don't exist... yet.

In cyberpunk fiction, consumer technology is rarely just sleek and functional. It's often over-stylized, or-especially if it's favored by the rebels and criminals making their way in the world-it's chunky, a bit dirty, and personalized. Neither extreme applies to most regular video game consoles, but that's why Cyberpunk 2077's a good fit for a special edition console, as this newly-revealed Xbox One X proves.

The Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X, due out in June, is garish in a good way. This is what I imagine an Ono Sendai from Neuromancer would look like. It's definitely not a gorgeous Syd Mead-esque design that would be at home in Blade Runner, but you can see how it tracks with CD Projekt Red's take on cyberpunk style. Even the corny glow in the dark "no future" graffiti tag seems like it'd be at home on one of the old covers of Mike Pondsmith's Cyberpunk 2020 role playing books.

As for the accompanying controller, it's the same one that leaked earlier this week: a split two-tone monochrome design with a splashes of red for Arasaka, a megacorporation within Cyberpunk 2077's universe.

The lead-up to this reveal was actually a short ARG puzzle by Microsoft and CD Projekt Red that kicked off yesterday, April 16—the same day as Cyberpunk's originally scheduled release date.

From the looks of the box, it seems like this bundle will include a copy of Cyberpunk 2077, but obviously it's coming out before the game's release in September. We're also waiting on a price confirmation. Right now, a regular Xbox One X will set you back $299.99. With the release of the Series X on the horizon and an eventual free next-gen upgrade to 2077 confirmed for it, players might want to skip this One X unless it's a particularly good deal-but hey, at least that cool controller will work with Microsoft's next console.

Thanks, Wario64.
