Microsoft teamed up with The Chainsmokers to create a customized, one-of-a-kind Xbox One S that has a chassis that lights up.
One lucky fan of the DJ duo will be able to win the special Xbox One S, as Microsoft confirms that more custom Xbox One S consoles are coming in the near future.
The custom Xbox One S created by The Chainsmokers brings “light and sound together,” according to the Xbox Wire, with the console aiming to replicate the experience of watching the DJ duo in one of their high-energy concerts.
To achieve the effect, the custom console uses a tiny USB-powered microprocessor that is capable of converting sounds in to a dynamic light show. The case of the special Xbox One S houses 60 miniature pixels that illuminate a multi-layered acrylic display of the chassis to create a light show with a 3D effect.
“We were really pumped to work with Xbox on this project and help bring our music to life in a new way, by combining it with the best gaming console in the world,” The Chainsmokers said in a statement.
The Xbox One S console created by The Chainsmokers will not be holed up in a display case somewhere that is out of reach for fans though, as one lucky person will be able to take it home. To participate in the giveaway of the console, users will need to join the Twitter promo, the rules of which have been uploaded on the official The Chainsmokers website. Basically, users will need to explain why they like the design of the custom console.
If an Xbox One S that lights up is not something that excites you, you might be interested to know that Microsoft will soon be releasing more custom consoles.
The special Xbox One S in partnership with The Chainsmokers is just the first of the many custom consoles that Microsoft is planning to create with various celebrities and brands. While Microsoft has not revealed the celebrities and brands that will also create custom Xbox One S consoles, at least some of them will be unveiled over the rest of the year.
Only a handful will be able to walk away with these special Xbox One S consoles, so perhaps gamers should instead focus on the upcoming Xbox One X. The upcoming console also has a special version, known as the Project Scorpio Edition, as Microsoft prepares to roll it out on Nov. 7.
