Microsoft explains how you can get your own Xbox Onesie
If you’re hyped about the Xbox Onesie, your best chance to score one will be via social media.
Was it a media stunt? Totally. Earlier in the week, Microsoft announced its latest bit of Xbox One merchandise, but this wasn’t a new console, controller or VR headset. Instead, it was the Xbox Onesie, which as the name suggests, is a Onesie with Xbox One labelling on it. Whether or not you’d be willing to wear such a thing ignited discussion on social media, but Microsoft remained vague about whether or not you’d actually be able to buy a "limited edition" Xbox Onesie.
There’s still no word on sales opportunities for the Xbox Onesie, but in the spirit of generating yet more hype, Microsoft Australia has announced it will give away "a limited number" of Xbox Onesies via its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts in Australia.
Competitions will open from 5:30pm AEST on each channel, although Microsoft is yet to say what you’ll have to do to be in the running to win an Xbox Onesie. We'd guess at a minimum the competition will only be open to Australian consumers right now, although it equally seems inevitable that some of the prizes will end up on eBay.
The whole effort is to build up hype for the recently announced Xbox One S, which is Microsoft’s slightly pumped up version of the Xbox One with a differentiated design and support for 4K Blu-Ray titles built in. If 4K isn't your thing, Microsoft is currently running a promotion where selected Surface PC purchases made through its online store get a free Xbox One.
