And definitely isn’t a dig at Sony’s lack of 4K UHD support on PS4, ahem.
the only thing I don't understand is why does MS make one-offs of their consoles. I am not saying to necessarily make one like this to sell to the public, but they need to take a page from Sony and release collector's editions consoles. They haven't done it for some time now. Look at how well the Spiderman and 500 million consoles sold lately.
It's one of the strangest things about how they're treating XOneX (on the commercial side). For a company that's gone all out with Minecraft, Gears, etc. XOneS consoles in the past, it's odd to see the only X variants are stuck to a white one (exclusive only to Gamestop as well), and some quasi-colored ones like Scorpio & BFV's Gold Rush.
There have been several missed opportunities for there to be CE xbox one x units or even S units that were themed like state of decay 2 or sea of thieves. Hell I have all the retail 360 CE's that were released like halo 3, res evil 5, star wars and gears of war to name a few. I dont play them, I just collect them but on the xbo side all there really was were halo 5, forza and CoD ones that got any kind of mass production. It's like since the S came out (and X) they have been more about just bundling a base color system with a game and calling it a day. They put more effort into their controllers than the look of the system. Sony has taken with MS did with the 360 variants and really stepped things up with PS4 variants. I like how the original base PS4 had interchangeable cover plates like the fat 360 did with its faceplates then after the S came out they started making real themed units for halo 4 and reach and gears. Just like how sony has themed pros for god of war and now spiderman among others. I dont know what happened to MS this gen but its like lots of their ideas are now being done by sony. MS should have made more themed systems for the S and X than they have for the og xbo. The og xbo has 3 themed systems while the S really only has 2 (gears 4 and minecraft) and the X has literally none. The only ones I ever see are one-offs or promo systems for black panther and this one for Solo.
I have to say, that does look quite nice. Completely ruined by having the "SOLO" logo on it though.
Agreed. The retro look is really cool, but the SOLO part is tacky. Xbox just won't beat the R2D2 Star Wars Bundle with that sweet controller. That was the peak of cool consoles modded by the company.
A little on late on that one arent they
Wow this is a new one. Xbox has no games so it is doing special edition tie-ins with movies? The actual movie name on the console and controller absolutely ruin the look as well.
Why would they make a movie themed console? Why not a game?
One of the ugliest special editions I've seen.
