Sometimes when gaming companies team up and collaborate with game developers for special versions of gaming hardware, it makes sense. For example, an eSports team working with a gaming accessories brand to create peripherals with their branding on it, or developers teaming up with console makers to release a special version of a console for an upcoming game.
However, sometimes it’s just a bit weird and slightly unnecessary, as in the case with Microsoft who recently teamed up with high-end fashion brand Gucci for the Gucci Xbox Series X console. It’s essentially the same console but the outer shell now comes emblazoned with Gucci’s signature double-G patterns, as well as two Xbox controllers with Gucci colors.
It also comes with a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and also a Gucci and Xbox themed suitcase to carry your console in. There are only going to be 100 units of these made and unsurprisingly, they won’t come cheap at $10,000 per piece. While it is slightly ostentatious, we imagine that there might be some who think it will be worth it just for the sake of collection.
It will be available for purchase on the 17th of November via Gucci’s website and select Gucci stores.
