The Fuzzy ‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ Xbox Controllers Are Horrifying

Xbox has launched a giveaway to win fuzzy Sonic the Hedgehog 2 controllers. They are truly horrifying. Like, seriously disturbing.

The fuzzy Xbox controllers are available in blue and red, each representing Sonic and his rival, Knuckles. The giveaway competition is in celebration of the upcoming movie, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which arrives in cinemas on April 1st. Sadly, these controllers are no April Fools joke.

However, if for whatever reason you wanted to enter the sweepstakes competition, you will also be in with a chance of winning a custom Xbox Series S console. Which in my opinion, looks rather snazzy. Though I would be tempted to lock the controllers away in a box hidden in my loft.

The Xbox Series S console features a golden ring on the face of the console with an embossed Sonic the Hedgehog 2 logo. The controllers on the other hand are furry and for some reason, gives me the creeps. All I can think of is sticky cola and Doritos getting stuck amongst the fur. Urgh!

So much furriness!

Unfortunately (depending on your perspective), this Sonic the Hedgehog 2 sweepstakes competition is only available to residents in the US. This is a shame because I’d actually love to win the console at least. You can enter the sweepstakes either by the link in the tweet above or through Microsoft Rewards via your Xbox console.
