Microsoft recently announced a new range of Xbox Series X console wraps, providing gamers with a more affordable option for customization. The wraps, which are not stickers but instead attach to the console using a velcro hook and loop enclosure, offer a unique way for players to personalize their gaming experience.
The first console wrap to be released will be for the highly anticipated game Starfield, set to launch on October 18th. This wrap features panels similar to the limited edition Starfield-branded Xbox controller, creating a cohesive look for fans of the game. With its tactile graphics and smooth white finish, the wrap clings seamlessly to the Xbox Series X, highlighting key internal console components.
In addition to the Starfield wrap, Microsoft plans to release two camo pattern wraps on November 10th, priced at $44.99 each. These wraps come in gray and blue “mineral” versions, perfectly matching the existing Arctic and Mineral Camo controllers. Gamers who prefer a military-inspired aesthetic will now be able to customize their Xbox Series X to reflect their personal style.
This marks the first time that Microsoft has offered custom wraps for an Xbox console since the days of the Xbox 360’s removable face plates. In recent years, the focus has been on custom-designed Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X consoles, but the wraps provide an official custom look without the need for a limited edition console.
By introducing console wraps, Microsoft is giving gamers the opportunity to personalize their Xbox Series X in a more affordable way. With a variety of designs to choose from, players can now create a custom look that reflects their individual taste and style. Whether it’s showing off their love for a specific game like Starfield or embracing a camo pattern, Xbox Series X owners now have more options for making their console unique.
