Xbox Moutain Dew Edition

Units Available: 5000
Retail Price: $99.99 (in 2004)

The Mountain Dew Limited Edition Xbox was only available through a Mountain Dew sweepstakes requiring loyal Dew-drinking Xbox fans to amass 550 points in order to "buy" the Limited Edition Xbox. The sweepstakes spanned 5 months – from April to August – in 2004. Production was limited to 5000 units. The price of this console if you wanted to buy it would go from 99.99 to 750.00. 750 would be for it still in the box not opened. Just to buy it used it would be around 100-150. There is only around 12-15 on the internet where you can buy them. Amazon has around 7-9 and Ebay has around 3-6. The Mountain Dew Limited Edition Xbox was neon-green colored and had a special jewel atop the Xbox that had the words "Limited Edition" and the Mt. Dew logo under the Xbox name. Included with the neon green console was one of two games: Project Gotham Racing 2 or Amped 2

This is a highly sought after console. Even though 5000 were made, collectors tend to sit on these and they never see the light of day. Avid xbox collectors as well as avid Mountain Dew collectors. At any given time you might be able to find 5 or 6 of these on eBay ranging in decent to excellent condition. These consoles go for roughly $120 all the way up to $700 PLUS (sealed). The very poor to poor condition consoles go for $90.00 - $100.00. In extremely rare cases... and I mean EXTREMELY rare... one of these will pop up on craigslist.

My suggestion, if you ever run across one, buy it! Already have 2 sitting there? So what.
