Tapping into 80s nostalgia and drawing inspiration from iconic pop culture moments, beloved movies, snacks, and fashion trends of the era, “Stranger Things” is a cultural phenomenon unlike any other — one that classic video games heavily inspired. From arcades to gaming references, video games help connect the generation who grew up during the era seen in “Stranger Things” to today’s youth expressing themselves and finding fulfillment in the joy of gaming.
To join in the celebration of “Stranger Things” and its highly anticipated return Xbox has created exclusive “Stranger Things” Xbox Series S consoles for fans to win.
But these aren’t normal Xbox Series S consoles. These consoles have been trapped in the Upside Down for who knows how long — and their designs reflect that. With a design inspired by cassette players of the 1980s, the Upside Down Xbox Series S has been twisted and corrupted, its once sleek aesthetic overtaken by the vines, tendrils and ooze of the flora and fauna found deep within the Upside Down. Each console is stored securely for decontamination in a special hazmat container.
Fans around the globe will have the chance to win one of these custom consoles by following @Xbox on Twitter. Stay tuned on @Xbox for a chance to win!
