Random: The Xbox Walkman Is Real, And It Actually Plays Cassette Tapes

Update: If you're in the UK, a brand-new competition has opened up to win one of these via Twitter!

Original story: Back in December, Xbox DACH generated a bit of attention by running a competition to win an Xbox Walkman based on the Xbox Series S, and the device is now slowly starting to go viral on social media.

As you can see from the video below, this is an actual, functioning cassette player, and it even comes with a special Xbox Game Pass cassette filled with tracks from various Xbox and Bethesda titles such as Halo Infinite and Fallout 76.

Unfortunately, as is usually the case with these limited edition giveaways, you can't buy the Xbox Walkman at present. We're willing to bet there would be a pretty big market for these things, but sadly we'll probably never find out.

If you're desperate to get your hands on one, it might be worth keeping yourself glued to the various Xbox social media accounts in your region just in case a new competition pops up, although we've only seen the Xbox DACH one so far, and that was being promoted back in December.
