Gears Developer Donates 200 Xbox One X Consoles For Hospitalised Kids

The Gamers Outreach charity, which "provides recreation to children in hospitals through the power of video games and the gaming community," has announced that Gears of War developer The Coalition has donated 200 Xbox One X consoles that will be provided to hospitalised kids.

In a blog post, the charity stated that the consoles would be equipped to outbound Gamers Outreach Karts, which are portable videogame kiosks equipped with things like a monitor, controllers and games. The charity says the donation could "help facilitate as many as 580,000 play sessions for kids each year."

Additionally, Gears 5 now has a custom skin called "Johnny COG Gear" that can be purchased from the Microsoft Store in support of Gamers Outreach. All profits from the skin go towards funding Gamers Outreach programs, and it's available at a price of £8.50/$9.99.
