  • LGBTQI+ History Month has begun, and Microsoft is celebrating with another console giveaway.
  • This time three custom designed, one-of-a-kind Xbox One X's are up for grabs, decked out in white and beautiful paintjobs.

In order to celebrate LGBTQI+ History Month, which spans the entire length of October and aims to educate and inform on the long history of the lGBTQI+ community, Microsoft is hosting another giveaway on their Twitter account. This time, three custom Xbox One X's are up for grabs, each one featuring a beautiful fan-designed- paint job on top of a white console, and a matching custom controller. The consoles are one-of-a-kind, so winners will be able to boast about owning something in their collection that no one else does.

The giveaway is opening to residents of the USA and Canada (excluding Quebec), and runs until October 18, 2020, but all people have to do to enter is hit the "retweet" button on the above tweet. Personally, I'm a fan of the gradient console, but each one looks great.

While the Xbox One X is still a perfectly fine and capable console on its own, if you're in the market for a new gaming powerhouse than it might be worth waiting a little longer. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are almost upon us, and are landing November 10, 2020, bringing powerful next-gen features like a super fast SSD, ray tracing, and so much more.
