Xbox has moved over to the big brother of the Series S for its latest custom console effort. To tie in with the upcoming 'Thor: Love and Thunder' movie, Microsoft has built this beast of a Series X console that's literally a hammer, handle and all.
As per usual this is a sweepstakes affair, where you have to enter a competition to win the system. As of writing the rule page link isn't working (hopefully it'll be live soon), but the tweet explains the basic competition rules, which involve following the Xbox account and retweeting the above post.
This is one of the very best custom consoles we've seen this generation, especially given it's an actual Xbox Series X this time out. Since the new consoles launched, Xbox has favoured the Series S for custom console competitions.

Ahhhh it's a shame the handle is on the back of it, would have been much better on the left side (top if the device is horizontal)
At least they finally used an X instead of S for one of these!
That is amazingly creative. Love it for the art, awful for the practicality.
@ralphdibny Agreed! might have actually make the series X look good on it's side. trololololo
I am not into Thor, but this is a very smart design.
I wonder what other block type items from other franchise might work well too.
Really clever design choice imo. Looks good.
Cor a XBOX you cant give away once owned, I take it if I throw it , it will come back to me. If I win it better not smash against the wall when I try it. Because it wont be fit for the purpose, it's Thors hammer for gods sake.
@themightyant 🤣 I just want to wield the power of the Mjolnir Series X
But yeah, can't see the handle if it's on the back!
Hopefully it's really heavy so you can see if your friends are worthy
@KITG_Group_BrunoB Allow me to put on my nerd glasses and explain that Mjölnir was never cursed or otherwise enchanted to explicitly return when thrown; Thor merely achieved that effect by judicious use of his and/or the hammer's ability for Mjölnir to be retrieved at its owner's command.
Anyway, this thing would be a work of absolute mad brilliance if it wasn't ruined by the incredibly tacky, profoundly unnecessary, and practically instantly out-of-date commercial logo plastered all over the side. Pity.
OK now we're talking, impractical yes but awesome nonetheless
Can the handle detach?
Let’s see if we get a special edition ps5 for GOW ragnarok and how it compares. Side note I hate how these special editions are 1 and done, would be nice if they did a limited drop for the general public.
Looks great, very creative!
Would I want it? Hell no - if the handle was on one of the sides you might be able to make a display space for it, but jutting out the back means placing it would be very awkward.
Works as a 'one off' though 😁
Honestly, if I won this I'd probably sell it and buy 2 series Xs
I've entered the giveaway, I can only I prove myself worthy of such an amazing console.
Hopefully it will be better than the movie
