Microsoft has announced that they have partnered with Paramount Pictures to celebrate Sonic The Hedgehog 2 with a custom Xbox Series S console paired with 2 fuzzy wireless controllers that may or may not be weird, depending on your preferences.
The custom black Series S actually looks pretty good, with its grille serving as a golden ring that is an iconic item in the game, with Sonic and Knuckles squaring off at the bottom. On the other hand, or paw, are the controllers that feature a textured coating that resembles the “bristly” texture of hedgehogs, as Microsoft describes it.
Sadly, these items are not for sale, and are only part of a limited-time promotion for the upcoming movie. You can stand a chance to win, though, so check out the mechanics below:
Fans can enter two sweepstakes for a chance to win the exclusive custom Series S and both the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red Xbox Wireless Controllers by either (1) retweeting the official sweepstakes tweet and including the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes, or (2) for fans in the US, by redeeming Microsoft Rewards points. Visit the official terms and conditions for more information on both the Twitter and Microsoft Rewards sweepstakes.
