Microsoft and Xbox have always had a thing for special edition consoles. It started back with the Xbox 360 which had Gears of War special edition consoles and controllers. For the Xbox One, the company really went overboard. Not to mention, their custom controller lineup is quite amazing. There was even a special edition Taco Bell one! Now though, from a tweet by Nibel we see that we may be seeing another special edition Xbox One X before the next generation console arrives.
Looks like a Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox bundle will be announced on April 20https://t.co/crwKri5tcd

Cyberpunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X
As apparent above, Cyberpunk 2077 is set for availability in the next couple of months. The date has been delayed a couple of times but we have an idea now. As the tweet suggests, as big a game Cyberpunk is hyped up to be, a special edition Xbox One X is right around the corner. In the tweet, we can see a controller that looks quite mad-max-ish, if that is a term. The controller was listed on Amazon Canada’s website, in a listing. Now we did not know the authenticity of the claim but then in the same thread, Nibel retweets a post from DUDEMAN127. In that tweet, we can actually see a render of an Xbox One X Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition box. Here is the original tweet:

In the comments, we see a number of comments on the looks. Most people like how the controller looks but they claim that it does not complement the console at all. For the console, I don’t know why but it looks more like skin rather than body paint. Others complained that there was, or is, no need for a special edition model considering the Xbox One X would be an outdated console in a couple of months. On that note, if you are reading this, only buy this if you have money to spare and you love collecting. If you’re looking for a console and want to bag this limited edition one as well, we’d suggest waiting it out till the next generation of Xbox: The Series X comes along. As for this, the tweet suggested that it would be announced on April 20th.
