If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to work for Microsoft, the apparent news that some Microsoft employees will be eligible to receive a free white Xbox One unit might get your jealousy levels rising.

It’s not the first time that Microsoft has gifted employees some of its newest tech, it did the same with some Windows Phone 8 devices and its Surface RT tablets, but according to Reddit user Kinect10DLL Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business employees who are still employed at the console’s launch will be eligible for a free white Xbox One unit. In addition to the console, employees will apparently receive a year of Xbox Live membership and all first-party games included in the deal, presuming that “1P” means that.

It also appears to be inscribed with the words “I made this” and something else below.

We’ve asked Microsoft for confirmation of the legitimacy of this offer and will let you know if we hear anything back.
