Xbox Created Furry Controllers to Celebrate Sonic the Hedgehog 2
You can enter to win the controllers and a limited edition Xbox Series S.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be released in U.S. theaters on April 8, 2022. To celebrate, Xbox partnered with Paramount Pictures to give away a custom Xbox Series S console and two Xbox Wireless Controllers.
The Xbox Series S features artwork inspired by the film, including a large gold ring and images of Sonic and Knuckles. The controllers, meanwhile, are covered in “fur,” with one being Sonic Blue and the other being Knuckles Red.
The Xbox website provided details about how fans can enter to win these items:
“Fans can enter two sweepstakes for a chance to win the exclusive custom Xbox Series S and both the Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red Xbox Wireless Controllers by either (1) retweeting the official Xbox 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.”
Fans can enter to win from now until April 30, 2022 at 8 p.m. PT. You can read the full rules for these sweepstakes here.
