Yes, it’s awesome. No, you can’t have one. “Titanfall” developer Respawn employees are now proud owners of the special edition “Titanfall” Xbox One, which was given to them by Microsoft.

Members of the game’s development team posted photos on social media site Twitter to display their new consoles, which were only rumored to exist a few months ago.

Though the consoles aren't available for purchse, first person shooter “Titanfall," which will be available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC this March, announced it will launch a limited-edition controller alongside its Xbox One version at the game’s release in mid-January.

On Jan. 20, Microsoft announced that the special controller will cost $64.99 and can be pre-ordered through the Microsoft Store. Developed by the Xbox design team with Sherman Oaks, Calif.-based developer Respawn Entertainment, the controller was created to resemble the C-101 carbine, a weapon carried by the pilots of elite Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation titans in “Titanfall.”

The title has already taken more than 60 awards at its E3 2013 premiere, including a record-breaking six E3 Critics Awards. “Titanfall” also won Best in Show awards from IGN, Destructoid and Game Informer.

In the game, players are able to fight on foot or as free-running pilots inside mech-style walkers called “Titans” to complete team missions and goals. The title is online multiplayer only, but it injects single-player elements such as plot, character interaction and non-player characters into its matches. Up to 12 players can participate at once.
