Oh, and brush up on your French and hope you are one of six lucky enough to be picked.

How would you like to mix Game of Thrones with your Xbox One? You can, but you better brush up on your French.

To celebrate the end of Game of Thrones Season 6 this evening, Microsoft and Warner France have partnered to offer six GoT-themed Xbox One consoles. The catch is that these cannot be purchased, but are only available for participating on Xbox France's Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages. A tweet/retweet on Twitter or a like/post on Facebook will make you eligible. There appear to be no restrictions on entry, but pull up Google Translate or brush up on your French to be safe.

The box has lots of metal protruding from various parts of the console, much like many of the characters from the HBO series and the George R.R. Martin books. It also appears that some ventilation may be covered (or out of view), but you probably don't have to worry about it overheating like Daenerys Targaryen's dragons. 

This is not the first time Microsoft has kept something like this localized to France. They offered a special Iron Man Xbox One in late April in conjunction with Captain America: Civil War.
