First Official XBox One Guarded by Sharks

The very first console, though, will be handed over to a lucky fan at midnight on the evening of November 21st in New Zealand, which will be the first country to launch the Xbox One thanks to its proximity to the International Date Line. Since the world?s very first official Xbox One console is a hot commodity, it needs to be protected from thieves and insidious reverse engineers. What better way to do that than by sticking it in a waterproof chest and dropping into a tank filled with sharks?

While the sharks don?t have laser beams attached to their heads, if someone was to attempt to snatch the game station, they would have to dive into a tank filled with 20 tiger sharks at the SEA LIFE Aquarium in Auckland, NZ and make it to the surface before getting nipped by one of the tank?s inhabitants. It?s an adventure worthy of a gamer and, if someone was able to pull of the heist, it would make a better story than the guy who was accidentally shipped a console two weeks early by Target.
