Xbox Launches Weird Furry Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie Controllers as Part of Grand Prize in Sweepstakes

Richard Walker

Xbox and Paramount Pictures have launched a special competition to tie in with the upcoming release of Sonic movie sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, this April. The Xbox Wireless Controllers are inspired by the “bristly” texture of Sonic's (voiced in the movie by Ben Schwartz) blue quills and Knuckles' (voiced by Idris Elba) red spines.

The sweepstakes to win the controllers and custom Xbox Series S console with golden portal ring and embossed Sonic the Hedgehog 2 forming its design, are open to all fans (full rules here), and also coincide with the upcoming release of new Sonic skins and a new Labyrinth Zone challenge for Minecraft's Sonic DLC, available via the game's marketplace from 5th April.

There are two sweepstakes to enter for a chance to win the exclusive custom Xbox Series S and both the furry Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red Xbox Wireless Controllers. You can do so by either retweeting the official Xbox sweepstakes tweet with the hashtag #XboxSonic2Sweepstakes, or, if you're in the US, you can enter using Microsoft Rewards Points. You can find out more on the Xbox Wire here.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be coming to cinemas on 1st April in the UK and 8th April in the US.

  • Like the console, controllers however not my thing. I think it will create more problems while gaming.
  • Feel bad for those who have extremely bad hand sweat while gaming.. I know a couple people like that myself.

    Nothing like having a smelly ass controller lol

    ..the ridiculous things they come up with in marketing meeting is so absurd sometimes.
  • Imagine trying to play Street Fighter for 6 hours on that or a 10-hour stint on PUBG with that furry thang? Maybe best left on the shelf for display but it doesn't exactly look great either.
  • The controllers are dumb as hell, but the console looks great ^_^

    Xbox should do official custom decals for the series S|X, so much blank frontage to play with.
  • Not gonna lie, I want one.
