Kelly Rowland, Halo, Russell Crowe Headline Xbox Charity Auction

To celebrate shifting a million consoles in Australia and New Zealand, Microsoft is putting a bunch of one-of-a-kind celebrity Xbox 360s up for auction. And we have to admit, that Halo one looks pretty sweet.

Celebs such as Kelly Rowland, Russell Crowe, Jennifer Hawkins, Elle MacPherson, Hugh Jackman and Kim Kardashian are among those who have had their likenesses airbrushed onto the case of an Xbox 360. They’re joined by sportsmen Mark Webber, Harry Kewell, Tim Cahill and Usain Bolt, plus randoms such as Slash, Jamie Oliver, Hamish and Andy and the casts of Master Chef and Home & Away.

The auctions kick off today with Rowland and Crowe’s consoles joined by a special Swarovski crystal console (pictured right) and a Halo console designed by Peter Jackson’s Weta Workshop. All proceeds from the auctions will be donated to the David Peachey Foundation to help indigenous kids.

“It’s great to be here to celebrate with Xbox, one million consoles sold is huge!” said Kelly Rowland. “What better way to celebrate the one million milestone than by raising money for a great cause, the David Peachey Foundation. All the one-of-a-kind consoles look awesome, so get bidding Australia!”

Yes, she actually said all that, according to this press release here.

You can see the rest of the first round of charity consoles below. How much would you pay for that Halo one?
