Grease-proof Xbox PUBG controller lets you game and eat your chicken dinner too

Greasy foods and gaming go hand-in-hand. Okay, admittedly, that's a gross generalization. But for those times you do partake in a greasy snack while sitting down for an evening of gaming bliss, you'll quickly notice one major downside: an equally greasy controller. The Xbox Australia team may have the perfect solution with its latest killer promotion.

Coinciding with the launch of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) out of Xbox Game Preview, the team at Xbox's Australia branch has debuted a grease-proof controller. In other words, if you happen to celebrate your virtual chicken dinners with a real one, you're covered.

Of course, like the Xbox Onesie before it, this is a promotional item, so you won't be able to buy one. Rather, according to a post on its official Facebook page, Xbox Australia currently has five of the controllers to give away to those who share their best "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner" stories. Though it's worth noting we may see further giveaways, as the controller featured in the promo video is numbered out of 200.

Those who are lucky enough to score one will be treated to a delightfully colorful controller with a "patented coating that is resistant to chicken grease." Just don't let it slip out of your grubby fingers.

If you'd rather skip the grease-proof controller altogether, PUBG is currently available for Xbox One for $30 at retailers like Amazon (opens in new tab) and the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab).
