If you were looking for an Xbox Series X that was a little more luxurious than the original, look no further. Gucci has the perfect product for you… but not for your wallet.
Perhaps the most unexpected partnership of the year is this one. In the world of video games, many people indulge in customizing consoles and controllers. For a year now, we have already had our batch of PS5 and Xbox Series collectors, but this edition, presented by Gucci, is really special.
Indeed, the luxury brand presented its version of the Xbox Series X which has been revisited rather soberly. The console itself features the brand’s famous “GG” logo replicated as a pattern and laser engraved on the console. According to the brand, this is “an evolution of the original Gucci Rhombi design from the 1930s. From then on, the GG motif becomes a play on words – representing not only the initials of Guccio Gucci but also the phrase “Good Game” ”.
Small reference welcomes to all gamers, therefore, which the brand does not fail to point out since it is a product intended for them. The controllers also got a makeover since they feature the famous blue and red bands, iconic of the Gucci brand. Besides that, the great peculiarity of this collaboration resides rather at the level of… packaging.
Indeed, the console and the controllers are not delivered in a standard box, but in a suitcase. It looks like a Gucci suitcase in every way, in its 20s-30s style, and with its famous brown pattern. However, we will notice the large Xbox symbol on the front, as well as the garish green color inside the suitcase. Everything comes with a temporary subscription to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass .
An exorbitant price
As you could imagine, the price of this Xbox Series X Gucci is soaring. If we take into account the normal cost of the console, displayed at a price of € 500, the customization and branding of Gucci, in addition to all the frills of this edition, the bill promises to be salty. And for good reason, the console is displayed at a price of 7,000 € (or 10,000 dollars)!
It will be sold in very few copies – 100 at most – in only two stores of the brand. No availability in France unfortunately but it will be sold in New York, Milan, or Tokyo.
If this collector’s edition were not to fit your budget (how about it, would it be a bit expensive?), Know that another very special Xbox Series X is on sale today, and they are just as pretty. This is the Xbox Series X Halo which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the license. It is sold
priced at € 549, a much more reasonable price compared to the extravagance of the Gucci edition.
