The Microsoft Store announces a new giveaway that includes a Top Gun: Maverick-themed Xbox Series S console, controller, and aviators.
With Paramount Pictures’ Top Gun: Maverick moving from movie theaters to households this week, some fans are seeing the massively popular film for the first time, and Microsoft is celebrating the movie through a themed Xbox Series S console giveaway. This Top Gun: Maverick Xbox Series S features cosmetics that would feel familiar to the film and comes bundled with a similarly unique controller and a pair of fashionable aviators.
Top Gun: Maverick is this year’s most successful box office picture so far, and it has become Paramount’s highest-grossing film ahead of its DVD and digital releases. Confirming the Xbox Series S giveaway on the Microsoft Store Twitter account, Microsoft added a few stipulations that are common in such contests for how Xbox fans can enter the giveaway for the console. This custom Xbox Series S is similar to others given away by Microsoft in the past, like the Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Elder Scrolls Online-themed consoles, only it’s fittingly stylized to reflect Top Gun: Maverick for the lucky Twitter user that wins it.
The Top Gun: Maverick Xbox Series S comes packed with an incredible controller that has the Top Gun logo on it in addition to many lights and dials that would look familiar inside the cockpit of a Super Hornet fighter jet like the one used in the movie. The Xbox fan that wins the giveaway will also be able to reflect Tom Cruise’s character Maverick while they play with their new Xbox Series S, as the bundle also includes custom aviators. Like other Xbox Series S consoles, this Top Gun: Maverick unit will also have three months of Xbox Game Pass, which will unlock access to Microsoft Flight Simulator and its Maverick expansion for the winner of the console.
In order to enter the Microsoft sweepstakes for the Top Gun: Maverick Xbox Series S bundle, fans must be at least eighteen years old and a legal resident of any Xbox Console-supported country or region. Unlike the traditionally white Xbox Series S, the Top Gun: Maverick-themed one is a similar shade of brown to Tom Cruise’s flight jacked in the movie and the film’s logo rests near the bottom of the standing console. The air vent circle on the Top Gun: Maverick Xbox Series S features a design like the one on Tom Cruise’s helmet in the film above what appears to be a visor reflecting the golden evening sun that adorned many of the movie posters.
While most of the responses to Microsoft’s Top Gun: Maverick Xbox Series S express enthusiasm for the giveaway and more hashtags beyond the one required for entering the contest, two Twitter users also thanked Microsoft for the opportunity to win the console.
