Cozy Up, Microsoft is Selling Hoodies for Your Xbox Controller

Busy stocking up on your winter essentials? Why not buy something for your Xbox controller too? Microsoft’s newly launched Xbox Mini Controller Hoodie is a mini jacket that will keep your controller warm and cozy at all times.

Jokes aside, the Xbox Mini Controller Hoodie is a stylish zipper mini hoodie jacket designed for Xbox Series X|S controllers. These come in just two colours – black and white. Both colour variants boast a similar “Sublimation print design,” and there are even tiny arm holes for your controller, cause why not? It’s about time our controllers got funky and fashionable. Made out of 100 per cent polyester, these Xbox Mini controller Hoodies will provide a snug fit to your controller and there’s even a prominent “Xbox” logo on the front and back.

Xbox sells a ton of clothing and apparel for people via its Xbox Gear Shop, but this is the first time the company has launched a clothing item for its controllers. Priced at roughly AUD$38 or USD$25, the Xbox Mini Controller Hoodie can be used as a fancy add-on or even sort of a cover for your controller, since it literally covers the whole thing up. But frankly speaking, we see no use for these as neither do they provide protection or any functionality.

That said, those looking to throw their money into these will have to wait as “the initial batch of the mini controller hoodies has sold out.” The company plans to ship these controller hoodies sometime in mid-February. However, if you are looking to get something yourself or your friends/family this holiday season, then here are some fantastic tech products you can get or a gift just for your special one. In other Xbox news, Microsoft recently told CMA that the Xbox Series X successor, or “the next new generation of consoles is not expected to be released before the fall of 2028 at the very earliest.”
