Xbox unveils a sonic controller covered in hair

No, it's not April 1st yet , but that doesn't stop Xbox from revealing some pretty… amazing items. The American manufacturer has indeed partnered with SEGA to offer us controllers inspired by Sonic .

It is next week, and more exactly on March 30, 2022, that will land in dark rooms. And since the first feature film met with a most honorable success two years ago, various brands intend to take advantage of the phenomenon to get people talking about them. We're not going to lie to each other, Xbox has struck a blow! Sonic The Hedgehog 2

Bad taste is out?

The console manufacturer has indeed lifted the veil on hairy controllers in the colors of Sonic and Knuckles who share the poster for the second film. An exclusive Xbox Series S has even been imagined. This black machine has an illustration of the film on its front as well as a golden ring placed around the ventilation of the console. The overall design is quite disconcerting.

Alas, collectors may be a "hair" frustrated since the console and the controllers will not be marketed but offered via a contest for the moment only announced in the United States. What a pity (or not)!
