If you live in Australia or New Zealand, you'll be able to get your hands on the Xbox Lynx collection starting in July. So far, there's no word on whether the range will see the light of day in other markets – but, boy, oh boy, one can only hope.

Umm... personally, not sure what to make of this lol.... clothes I can I understand... but this.. Hmm.. Objectively, it's licensing genius as there are die hard fans out there and there are people who take colour co-ordination to crazy levels. Some may argue it sort of dilutes the brand and they'd have a point. Never the less it's so bizarre and hilarious that it actually sticks with you thus generating mindshare. People are going to share articles about this whilst having a good chuckle. I can also see these becoming a collectors item if Microsoft pulls the plug on this endeavour.
As you know a group of lions is a pride, a group of crows is a murder. My son once told me a group of gamers is a stink. Clearly an underserved market. ;)
Their fanboys just buy anything Xbox related. Whether it's about buying 3 or more different versions of consoles in one generation or the nth version of controller.
Why not milk these people with more "xbox" products? I just wish that, as a gaming company, they are more focused about making and releasing games. It's not as if they provided a huge amount of games for their customers this generation (compared to the competition).
yeah... imagine if a company would sell a monitor stand for 999$ how ridiculous...
Sorry, I have no idea what you're talking about.
Apple announced their new monitor which is $4999 without a stand. the stand is an extra $999.
LOL That is really dumb from Apple. And like this I'm sure silly fanboys will defend and buy that thing.
Thanks for letting me know.
Yea, but have you seen the stand? It's magical.
To be fair, the monitor is incredible, it is quite simply the greatest display you can buy for that price bar nothing. And most people buying it, won't buy the stand, they'd VESA mount it (still a cost of $199, but more manageable) instead.
It's too bad sony doesn't release games with replay value. You know ones that have multiplayer or splitscreen co-op. It gets boring pretty quick playing single player only games especially the repetitive button mashers especially considering they milk their fans for the full $60. Or have features like backwards compatibility instead of ripping you off for $20 a month. Or Native 4k gaming, 4k blu ray, dolby atmos.
LOL You do know that there are more PS4 exclusives that has multiplayer than the XB1.
Why don't you go buy some "xbox" body spray instead of bringing bs argument? :)
I'm only interested if it smells like a new Xbox. 😜
Oh yeah, because PlayStation merchandise doesn't exist. gear.playstation.com/en-us The concept is stupid, but this isn't the first time a company has put it's name on a product.
Well, yeah. I think merchandise on games can be ok but not of a brand.
PS brand merchandise is also a way to milk PS fanboys.
Yes, it's not the first company doing it, but I'm not sure it's the best idea to do this type of things after the poor offering of games they offered their customers not only this generation but in the last 10 years or so.
The Speedrunning community needs this more than anyone
Don't you mean speed walkers?
What the heck.
Why no? Why not?
Finally, we get something down here and it's...what?! Would have far preferred we got proper Cortana or Xbox Design Labs...or...and..etc etc Gee thanks Microsoft :/
It's Lynx though, that stuff is putrid.
