For your interesting news of the day about something cool you probably can't get, Xbox has released some sweet Chinese New Year themed controller skins sold only in China.

So if you know someone who knows someone, you may be able to get your hands on one.

Check them out below:


Lunar New Year is a celebration of fun, family, and good fortune for Chinese gamers, with this year’s celebrations kicking off on Tuesday, February 5 to celebrate the Year of the Pig. Those born in the Year of the Pig are said to be lucky and free spirited… ideal traits for gamers who seek to find new ways to play everything from RPGs to racers to real-time strategy games and more!


To celebrate we’ve brought together Eastern culture and Western technology to launch a limited-edition series of controller skins for this Lunar New Year for fans across Greater China region. These new designs are inspired by China’s history of royalty, art and power, delivering a distinctive and prestigious look for the world’s most powerful consoles!


Our story is told through three distinct designs for Lunar New Year, inspired by the festive elements, happiness, and history of the season:





In ancient times, seeing the emperor leading into battle was considered a significant morale booster to the soldiers. These new limited-edition designs arm our gamers across the East with the strength and focus to fight the toughest of boss battles, puzzles, or games of speed.

The limited-edition Forbidden City controller skin range will be available in China only via selected retail partners, and Xbox China on Weibo.
