Microsoft gives fans a chance at winning a custom Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Xbox Series S console and two controllers based on Sonic and Knuckles.
Many consider Xbox Series S a great way to play modern games. Even though it’s not as powerful as the Xbox Series X, its lower price has caught the attention of many aspiring customers. Xbox Series S is also easier to manufacture and is more readily available than Xbox Series X and the PS5.
Microsoft had released several custom-designed Xbox One consoles throughout the previous generation, and Xbox Series X is no different. Halo Infinite limited edition Xbox Series X launched with the release of the game, which came with a beautifully designed system and controller. Microsoft even cooperated with Ubisoft to give away a unique Far Cry 6 Xbox Series X, and fans now have a chance to win another custom-designed console.
Xbox is teaming up with Paramount Pictures to celebrate the upcoming film Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Microsoft is giving away a custom Xbox Series S console and controllers as a part of this event. The controllers are designed around Sonic and Knuckles, voiced by Ben Schwartz and Idris Elba, respectively. The post on the official Xbox website then describes the console, which features a golden portal ring alongside the film’s logo. The console has been well-received, although some fans have reservations about the controller.
The new controllers come with textured coatings based on the “bristly” texture of the hedgehogs, and they are appropriately named Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red. Fans can participate in this giveaway by re-tweeting the official sweepstakes tweet with the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes. Those in the US can also join by redeeming Microsoft Rewards points. The contest ends at 8 PM PT on April 30, 2022, and fans should look at the terms and conditions to see if they are eligible for the giveaway. Microsoft confirms that 18+ residents of an Xbox Live supported region can participate in this event.
Microsoft took this opportunity to highlight some Sonic DLC items in Minecraft. The post mentions that fans can explore the iconic Sonic zones, like the Green Hills Zone, through the Sonic the Hedgehog DLC from the Minecraft marketplace. It also comes with 24 in-game skins, new achievements to unlock, and new characters for players to meet. Microsoft then confirms that it will be launching a new update to this DLC on April 5, which will add six new skins and a new challenge in the Labyrinth Zone.
