Wonka-Themed Xbox Series X Comes With An Edible Controller

Wonka-Themed Xbox Series X

Three years have flown by since the inception of the Xbox Series X|S, and Microsoft has been keeping the gaming world on its toes with a series of unique, one-off console releases tied to blockbuster films. The latest collaboration between Microsoft and Hollywood is truly a treat, especially for those with a sweet tooth. With the impending release of Wonka in December, Xbox enthusiasts now have the chance to win a delectable Xbox Series X that looks good enough to eat—literally. However, I’d strongly advise against trying to nibble on this gaming masterpiece unless you’re aiming to make your dentist ecstatic.

Taking inspiration from the iconic Wonka bar, this special edition Xbox Series X flaunts a chocolate-themed veneer, featuring a top grill that resembles a wafer bar that’s had a run-in with the Candy Cartel. And if that’s not enough to tickle your taste buds, the fortunate winner of this sweepstakes will also receive the gaming world’s first-ever official edible Xbox Controller. Crafted from 100% pure chocolate and adorned with the signature gold Wonka wrapper, it’s a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.

Now, let’s talk eligibility. To throw your hat into the ring, you need to be a legal resident of any Xbox console-supported country or region and, of course, be at least 18 years old. The entry process involves a bit of social media finesse—you’ll need a Twitter account, a follow for the Xbox account on that platform, and a retweet of the promotional post along with the sweepstakes hashtag. If you want to dive into the nitty-gritty details, all the rules are neatly laid out in this link.

As the gaming community eagerly anticipates the release of Wonka on December 15 in the US, the film promises a whimsical adventure with Timothee Chalamet stepping into the shoes of the infamous chocolatier. Facing off against a syndicate that has a tight grip on the sweets trade, Wonka brings his imaginative candy treats to the table in an effort to win hearts and minds. Directed by Paul King of Paddington fame, the movie also features a star-studded cast, including Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Matt Lucas, Olivia Colman, Jim Carter, and Hugh Grant in the unexpected role of an Oompa Loompa. Yes, you read that right—Hugh Grant as an Oompa Loompa. Now, that’s a cinematic twist worth savoring!
