Please Don’t Eat The New Wonka-Themed Xbox Series X Console


Since it launched three years ago, Microsoft has regularly rolled out one-off Xbox Series X|S consoles that have helped promote several films. The latest collaboration between Microsoft and Hollywood might be the sweetest yet, as ahead of the release of Wonka in December, you can stand a chance to win an Xbox Series X that looks delicious. Just please don’t try to eat it, unless you want to make your dentist very happy.

Based on the iconic Wonka bar, this Xbox Series X sports a chocolate-themed veneer, with the grill on top looking like a wafer bar that has run afoul of the Candy Cartel. Fortunately, it does come with a few edible bits as well, as the lucky winner of this sweepstakes will also get a chocolate controller and a Wonka candy store display full of additional sweets. To be eligible to enter, you’ll need to be a legal resident of any Xbox console supported country or region and at least 18 years of age.

As for the actual entry, this will require you to have a Twitter account, follow the Xbox account on that platform, and retweet the promotional post and the sweepstakes hashtag. You can read the all the rules through this link.

The Wonka film will arrive in the US on December 15 and stars Timothee Chalamet as the infamous chocolatier. A new face in town, Wonka is out on a mission to win hearts and minds with his imaginative candy treats while also facing off against a syndicate that has monopolized the sweets trade and doesn’t take kindly to challengers.

Wonka is directed by Paddington’s Paul King and also stars Keegan-Michael Key, Rowan Atkinson, Matt Lucas, Olivia Colman, Jim Carter, and Hugh Grant as an Oompa Loompa. No, really.
