Sonic 2 Xbox

Xbox Releases Console and Controller Inspired by Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Xbox has created a rather iconic limited console release to celebrate the upcoming movie sequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, launching on April 8, 2022.

“Sonic the Hedgehog 2” Custom Xbox Controllers

The custom Xbox Series S console includes the iconic golden ring Sonic collects in-game as well as an embossed picture of Sonic and Knuckles on the surface of the Series S. I think the console looks great as a tie-in but the controllers are a whole other thing and are disturbing.

That doesn’t mean I don’t like them, but they certainly remind me of one particular moment in the movie Get Him to the Greek starring Russell Brand and Jonah Hill. After being drugged (slipped a Jeffrey), Hill’s character is told by Brand’s Snow to “stroke the furry wall,” a mindset to calm the nerves and deal with the drugs.
