This stems from a post on the Xbox blog. The “Xbox Singing Controller” with built-in speaker is a collaboration Microsoft has entered into with Interscope Records, songwriter Benny Blanco, pop group BTS and rapper Snoop Dogg for the release of their new song “Bad Decisions.”
This exclusive controller comes in a striking red color scheme and is stamped with the names of the artists. The speaker on the back of the controller plays the new song at the touch of a button. The number of pieces was strictly limited, there are only 30 copies in total, which will be raffled immediately. You can participate through Twitter, the contest lasts until August 25. Microsoft has compiled exactly how it works and all the conditions of participation on a special page for the campaign.
The controller will definitely become a coveted collector’s item in the future. The Xbox team is confident: “With its unique design, the Singing Xbox Controller is a true collector’s item for game and music fans alike.”
Maybe at some point there will be other similar campaigns with song controllers.
There is definitely another gift for the beginning of “Bad Decisions”. Forza Horizon 5 is donating an exclusive vehicle specially designed for the release of the song, a Little Buggie. The car’s paint shows both the artwork for the single and a QR code for the song. The 1971 Meyers Manx Buggie in its exclusive livery can be downloaded from the in-game Message Center gifts.
