UPDATE: Contest tweet has gone live. We’ve embedded it in the article.
Today, Xbox Wire has announced a contest to win a custom Sonic 2 Movie Sonic vs. Knuckles-styled Xbox Series S along with two truly reprehensible controllers covered entirely in thick blue and red fur.
There will be two
victims winners of the specialty console and controllers, and entry requires you to follow Xbox with a public Twitter account through 7 days after you’ve entered and retweet an official contest tweet with the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes.
U.S. entrants will also be allowed to enter through use of Microsoft reward points.
I will now spend the following paragraph describing the controllers in unflattering terms: They look like the Hollywood live action-CG version of the Elmo and Cookie Monster Wii remotes. They look like the eggs Gritty would lay in order to propagate his species. They look like fondling a terrier’s face. They look like someone dropped the stickiest controller onto a shag carpet and had to cut it loose. They look like if hardware could experience floating point errors. And most importantly: they look like an actual waking nightmare to clean.
