Xbox 360 Launch Team 2005 Special Edition

Xbox 360 Launch Team 2005 Special Edition: "Some of you might remember the Xbox Launch Team 2001 special edition. It's probably one of the most (if not THE most) rare retail (original) Xbox system.It's a translucent green Xbox with a 'Launch Team 2001' jewel signed by Bill Gates and it came with unique 'big' translucent green controllers (the PAL and Halo1/2 green special editions came with green 's' controllers). It was sold (not even given for free) to Xbox-division employees back in 2001.Well it looks like Microsoft did something similar for the Xbox 360. Below is a picture of the 'Launch Team 2005' Xbox 360 special edition, courtesy John Porcaro, a PR manager on the Xbox team at Microsoft. Check out the USB door, it says 'I made it'. The top and bottom grill/hard drive are green.I don't know if these were given for free to the Xbox Team or if they had to buy them again, but either way ... knowing what such a special edition could go for on ebay it's certainly worth it.
