Sticky and still Unstoppable - The Controller of the Future?!
Gamers with those greasy snack hands, take heed! The Xbox Australia and New Zealand team has made a revolutionary announcement that will change the world of console gamers. Have you ever found yourself frantically shoving snacks into your mouth between score screens and wiping your hands on every surface you can before grabbing your precious controller? Have you ever missed the beginning moments of a game because you were too busy trying to clean the crap off your hands... and the joysticks? Or that moment when during a crucial countersnipe your finger eases just enough off the analog stick to completely miss? Thanks, residual grease! Dorito powder, pizza oil, mountain dew spills. These are all a thing of the past. Because in celebration of the official launch of PUBG (Playerunknown Battlegrounds) Xbox ANZ is giving away GREASEPROOF CONTROLLERS. That's right. You can enjoy your chicken dinner while you play!! Winner winner chicken dinner, some might say. The new and improved joysticks, along with the entire controller, are urethane coated so nothing unwanted sticks. It seems like a bit of a gimmick, this whole grease proof thing. But at the top end, conformally coated waterproof controllers might be a thing for those that don't want to get out of the pool. Time will tell if this limited and to be honest, bit of an oddball release, turns out popular. Right now, it is unclear if these will become widely available for purchase as they are currently being given away as part of the PUBG promotion. If you want to get your unwashed hands on the VERY limited edition Xbox One controller the competition is stiff but pretty straightforward. All you have to do is visit the Xbox ANZ Facebook page and become one of the top five "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" stories! Here is hoping that this crazy idea sticks around and becomes available for the regular consumer! I wouldn't mind having a urethane coated keyboard and mouse while they are at it! Stay tuned for more similar content and e-sports!! Have a fantastic day, @SammoSK
