The first ever singing controller for Xbox is coming out. The gaming behemoth revealed on Friday (Aug. 5) that it has collaborated with Interscope Records, Benny Blanco, BTS, and Snoop Dogg for the limited-edition, personalised controller to commemorate the release of “Bad Decisions.”
The new Blanco song “Bad Decisions,” which features BTS and Snoop, is played on the controller, but you can only obtain one.
The vibrant red controller is ideal for gamers and music lovers alike. It has bespoke artwork with the names of the musicians and a speaker attached to the rear that plays “Bad Decisions” when a button is pressed. Fans can still enter to win a controller by following and retweeting the news from the @Xbox Twitter account (don’t forget to include the hashtag #BadDecisionsSongXboxSweepstakes). The controller is not currently available for purchase.
On Friday, Blanco retweeted the statement and praised Xbox for making a special controller available to fans “all across the world” of BTS and Snoop Dogg.
The Microsoft Bad Decisions Xbox Sweepstakes began on August 4 at 9:00 p.m. PT and runs until August 25 at 6:00 p.m. PT. The entry age for the contest is 18 or older. For more information, go here.
Forza Horizon 5 will be giving away a bespoke vehicle based on the “Bad Decisions” album artwork in addition to a special Xbox controller and a QR code that connects gamers straight to the new song (so they can blast it while driving around Horizon Festival).
On Friday at 11 a.m. PT, tune in to Xbox’s Twitch channel for a celebration of the premiere of the “Bad Decisions” music video, an exclusive look at the singing controller, and a chance to play Forza Horizon 5 in-game content.
The lead song from Blanco’s upcoming third studio album, “Bad Decisions,” is scheduled to be released this year.
Regarding his collaboration with the K-pop trio, the producer commented, “I’m still pinching myself.” “I can’t believe I’m releasing a song with BTS members Jin, Jimin, V, Jung Kook, and Snoop Dogg. Even so, it doesn’t seem real.
