The new Xbox One games console is being closely guarded ahead of its launch by a group of sharks.

The first new Xbox console in eight years has been sealed in a transparent waterproof box and sits at the bottom of an aquarium containing 20 sand tiger sharks at Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium in Auckland, New Zealand, allowing the public to look, but not touch. This unit will be retrieved and handed over to a lucky fan at midnight on November 21.

New Zealand will be the first country to launch the Xbox One due to its proximity to the International Date Line, when 10,000 retail stores in 13 countries will open their doors at midnight to mark the Xbox One launch on November 22.

You can watch a news story covering the sinking of the console in the video below:
