For gaming fans, their consoles are among their most prized possessions. Companies often launch unique and offbeat consoles to offer a different look or experience. Among the recent ones making waves online is an edible console announced by Microsoft. This special Xbox console is reportedly crafted from chocolate. Yes, you read that right! Xbox has collaborated with Warner Bros. Pictures to create this themed Series X console, controller, and set of chocolates. The collaboration is a promotional move for the film, Wonka, which will be released in theatres next month.

The console is not a functional one - it is a limited-edition collector's piece. It has gold Wonka branding on the front, while the controller has a burgundy colour (a nod to that of Willy Wonka's coat). The console and accessories cannot be bought. They are only available as prizes for a competition being hosted online. Take a look at the official X post below:
Now that looks delicious 🤤
