Overnight, Xbox has revealed some awesome themed controllers and Xbox Series S console design based on the upcoming movie, Sonic the Hedgehog 2. There are limited edition red or blue bristly wireless controllers as well as a custom Xbox Series S featuring the iconic golden ring from the franchise and its iconic characters embossed on its surface.
That’s right, with textured coatings reminiscent of the “bristly” texture of hedgehogs in the wild, the new Xbox Wireless Controllers come in Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red and they have my mind blown. I don’t know how they feel and whether I would play with them, but these would certainly sit pride of place on my gaming collection shelves.
Xbox gamers have a chance at winning yourselves this Sonic the Hedgehog 2 themed set of controllers and Xbox Series S console by retweeting the official Xbox sweepstakes tweet and including the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes.
