Microsoft Xbox One S In Association With Chainsmokers Lights Up
Microsoft and DJ duo, The Chainsmokers have teamed up for a custom Xbox One S edition that lights up when you play. Microsoft has addressed that this is a part of a larger initiative where the company will team up with more celebrities and brands for custom XBon One S editions. The custom console uses a small, USB-powered processor that converts sound into a changing light show. There are 60 pixels that light and creates what Microsoft says is a 3D effect.

Chainsmokers released a statement in support of the new console expressing their excitement at the opportunity to collaborate with Microsoft.
We were really pumped to work with Xbox on this project and help bring our music to life in a new way, by combining it with the best gaming console in the world. We knew the team would do something amazing, but when we saw the custom Xbox One S for the first time, we were both blown away by how cool the design is.
Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing at Xbox, stated that throughout the years, he has seen a lot of unique consoles, but nothing quite like this. Greenberg added that the Chainsmokers Xbox One S console “is a true piece of art.”
Microsoft has decided to give away the console. You can try your luck by following The Chainsmokers on Twitter and replying to them with a message about why you like the design of the console. The details about the giveaway contest can be found here.
Getting your hands on one of these custom XBox One S consoles seems is a bit of a stretch, but, the XBox One X will launch in November, which Microsoft claims is the most powerful console it has ever made. The XBox One X will be priced at USD 500 (Rs. 32,000), which is much more than the USD 250 (Rs. 16,000 approx.) price of the XBox One S.
