Decided to post this here to see if anyone knew more about this console. (It's in my collection thread also.)
From what I think I know this is the version of the Kasumi-Chan Blue Xbox console that was never released. The actual version says "Dead or Alive Ultimate." I believe this was the version of the console that Microsoft made BEFORE Tecmo changed the name of the game from "Dead or Alive Online" to "Dead or Alive Ultimate" (you can't buy Dead or Alive Online for the Xbox) and pushed the release date back from 25 March 2004 to 3 November 2004. So this is probably the version of the console that was supposed to be released on 25 March 2004. The number of these consoles was supposed to be limited to 5,000 for the 25 March 2004 and (I think) 6,000 when the release date was pushed back to 3 November 2004.
I bought this console from someone who bought it from an ex-Microsoft employee that received it has a gift from the company. Before I bought this, I had only seen stock images of the console and a few non-stock but they are all the same and probably from Microsoft. The console has no Japanese on it like the actual Kasumi-Chan edition and the MFG date is almost an exact year before the release date of Dead or Alive Ultimate of 3 November 2004.
So my question is, if 5,000 of these were originally made for the original release date BEFORE Tecmo changed the name, how many were scrapped or reused for the new name of the game?
If anyone knows anything more about the console or the game itself, or has one of these consoles or the game itself say so.
