You can get this Bluey Xbox, But It’s Not Going To Be Easy

Bluey has been a lot of things on the popular Australian cartoon. She’s transformed into animals, princesses, fairies, a purple jocks wearing character named Barnicus, and plenty more. But, that was all through her imagination. Today, Bluey takes on a new identity – that of a custom Xbox gaming console. The good news is, this system could be yours – but it’s not going to be easy.

In honor Bluey’s upcoming video game, Bluey: The Video Game (that’s easy to remember), Microsoft is releasing their very own custom Bluey Xbox. This item will not be sold in stores, and is available exclusively through a contest going on through Microsoft’s social media pages. More on that in a few, but first – let’s look at this sytem!

Is The Bluey XBOX Real?

Many folks have claimed this isn’t legit, but I can tell you with total sincerity, the Bluey Xbox is very, very real.

Oddly enough, the rectangular shape of the Xbox is a perfect match for Bluey’s body shape, and doesn’t feel like that much of a stretch seeing her in this format. The system we’re talking about today is an Xbox Series X, the more powerful of the two current-gen Microsoft consoles. It’s identical to any Series X system as far as hardware and specs, it just has the key difference of looking like this famous Heeler pup. And yes, the design wraps around the entire console – it’s not just a facade on the front.

Making the deal even sweeter, the winner of this contest will also receive a custom Xbox controller. This one comes in the same shade of blue as the titular character, and features a Bluey logo on the center, with Bluey and Bingo respectively on opposite sides of the handles. They’re both flossing, making me hope that the new video game will feature a dance mode of some kind that uses some motion controls.

Thanks to being a contributing writer at Fatherly who specializes in Bluey, I was sent a special unit in advance to promote this contest. If you’d like to see more details about how this Bluey Xbox and the controller looks, check out my in-hand review below:

How Can I Get The Bluey Xbox?

The only way to bring this custom Bluey Xbox console and controller into your gaming room is by winning a contest running on Microsoft’s Twitter page. It’s easier than you think, but that also means it’s even more difficult to win.

Simply follow and retweet this post on their Twitter account using the hashtag #BlueyXboxSweepstakes, and you’re entered to win. That’s it. The end. Of course, entering is the easy part. The fact that this requires no skill and is purely luck means every single person out there retweeting has just as much of a chance as anyone.

The contest is open to anyone aged 18 or older. It began on November 28, and ends on December 13, 2023 at 8 PM PST. Entrants can retweet the post once per person, meaning no duplicate accounts are allowed.

If you’d like to learn more about the contest and read the official rules, you can do that on the official Microsoft website. And lastly, may the odds be ever in your favor. Good luck!

Bluey: The Videogame is available on Xbox X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5.

While this product was sent to me for consideration on Fatherly, this post or Fatherly’s was not sponsored by Microsoft, Xbox, or Twitter.
