Yesterday, Xbox started up a new giveaway for a fancy Xbox One X that has been lovingly adorned with the 2020 movie version of Sonic the Hedgehog‘s face. If you like Xbox, and you like Sonic, then you can stand a chance at getting a console that merges the two.

As you can see from the tweet below, the Xbox One X is now blue, and it has the Sonic the Hedgehog movie logo slapped on the face, although you’ve got the upper half of Sonic on the top of the console. It’s not just the console that’s blue — while there’s no mention of the controller, the giveaway image shows an Xbox One controller which is custom-designed to also be blue with some wonderful texturing to it, as well as the movie logo on it.

I assume it comes with it otherwise you’ll just end up with a console.

The official rules are fairly straightforward.

  • The giveaway ends on April 14, 2020.
  • You have to be 18 or over.
  • You have to be a legal resident of any Xbox Live supported regions.
  • You need to be following the Xbox account on Twitter.
  • You need to retweet the tweet with the hashtag #SonicXboxsweepstakes.

For those that don’t know, the Xbox One X —which released in 2017— is the more powerful version of the Xbox One console that launched in 2013. If you want to know what DualShockers thought of the system you can read our review here.

In addition to the giveaway, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is available to watch digitally, and also through Microsoft Movies and TV. What do you think of this custom Xbox One X? Does the amount of Sonic make or break it for you?
