A supposed next generation Xbox development kit has sold on eBay for $20,100, which could be interesting if true.
The "Microsoft Xbox Durango Development Kit" is one of two prototype units whose existence was leaked in previous weeks, and now it has been sold by its owner. Both machines belong to a man known as "DaE," who posted photos and specifications of one devkit and even what will be possible with Kinect 2.0. The seller confirmed on his Twitter account that the devkit sold on eBay was his and that he has another in his home.
The spare Xbox Durango devkit was sold because DaE did not want to keep it around as a "leg rest" anymore. Eighteen bidders placed 43 total bids on the unit, with the winner coming in to jump the bid from $16,000 to $20,000 USD. That bid was matched, so an extra $100 was added for the final purchase price of $20,100.
The winner is remaining anonymous, although there can be plenty of speculation on just who it was. It could be a random person with an extra 20 grand lying around or possibly Microsoft themselves. The sale of an Xbox Durango devkit, even one that may not be legit, probably would not sit well with the tech giant.
