Xbox with a unique Sonic the Hedgehog themed Xbox

Xbox is releasing a limited-edition bristly controller – you read that right – to celebrate the premiere of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on April 8.


Sonic the Hedgehog has been a popular character in games and on our big screens since the 90s. Fans can tap into nostalgia with a chance to win their own custom Xbox Series S and one-of-its-kind, limited-edition Wireless Xbox Controllers celebrating the premiere.  


About the custom console and controllers: The custom Xbox Series S features the iconic golden ring from the franchise and its iconic characters embossed on its surface, but the real surprise are the custom Xbox Wireless Controllers. With blue and red textured coatings inspired by their namesakes, the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red custom Xbox Wireless Controllers feature an outer shell reminiscent of “bristly” coat of hedgehogs. Check out the image below.


Here’s how you can get your hands on the limited-edition bundle: Fans can retweet the official sweepstakes tweet and they’ll be entered for a chance to win the Xbox Series S and the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red controllers.


I mean….they certainly are something…but in the immortal words of Jeff Goldblum….
