Giant Inflatable Xbox Controller Will Make Any Gamer's Vacay
As giant pool-based inflatables go, this could be the best we’ve seen. And that's a tough category to judge. This giant Xbox One S controller float is an official product from Xbox that anyone can own. *But* it’s limited edition.
The awesome inflatable controller is being offered as a prize by Xbox Australia as part of its Australia Day celebrations. Last year, their Xbox Onesie was a surprise hit so the company is obviously hoping the controller will be popular even beyond Australia too.
While the buttons are simply printed on the blow-up float, the shape actually varies for the analogue sticks - something to hold onto then. It also comes with two drinks holders: Something which frankly, the real thing could benefit from!
Xbox points out, surely for the LOLs, that the giant inflatable controller can’t actually be used with the console. “The Limited Edition Giant Inflatable Xbox One S Controller is not compatible with the Xbox One or Xbox One S gaming console, Xbox One Play and Charge Kit, Xbox One Chat Headset, or Xbox One Stereo Headset. It is however suitable for use in swimming pools, fresh water pools or the ocean, all summer long.”
If this proves popular perhaps there will be more in the future. We can but hope.
To get one of your own you just need to comment about Australia Day on the Xbox Australia Facebook page.
