Between Xbox and custom controllers, it’s a great love story. Even if it’s been a while now since the American firm has announced new models. Today, Microsoft is partnering with the production company Interscope Records as well as the famous producer, DJ and composer Benny Blanco. With Jin, Jimin, V and Jung Kook of 21st century pop icons BTS and with singer and actor Snoop Dogg. All together, they launch the very first singing Xbox controller to celebrate their new single: Bad Decisions.
The first Xbox controller… that sings
Available for a few hours, you can listen to Bad Decisions everywhere on the usual listening platforms. But soon, for a few lucky ones, it will even be possible to listen to it directly from an ultra-collector controller that has just been put into play by Microsoft.
This controller is music to our ears and @ItsBennyBlanco, @bts_bighit and @SnoopDogg 🎶

A red controller, with a white Xbox logo, joysticks and a directional cross also white as well as speakers at the back of the latter allowing you to listen to the new sound of Benny Blanco thanks to a special button. This is the first ever singing pad, a collector’s item for music and video game fans with the names of the artists engraved on the front of the pad.
Unfortunately, the latter will not be offered for sale and you will have to be one of the few winners to be able to own it. Small consolation prize, it will be possible to unlock a car in the colors of the single Bad Decisions in Forza Horizon 5 for free. Thanks to a QR code, you will be able to listen directly to the song while driving around the Horizon Festival. The 1971 Meyers Manx and its livery can be downloaded from the “Gifts” tab of the game’s message center.
