Xbox game controller plays new song by BTS, Snoop Dogg, Benny Blanco
Xbox has unveiled what it calls its first singing video game controller. And you have a chance to win one – for a song.
The red fire controller plays “Bad Decisions,” a new single from Benny Blanco, BTS and Snoop Dogg and features the song title and their names on the front. A speaker on the back of the controller plays the song when you press a button, Marcos Waltenberg, director of Xbox Global Partnerships, said in a post on Xbox.com.
“Xbox has partnered with Interscope Records, renowned record producer, DJ and songwriter Benny Blanco, Jin, Jimin, V and Jung Kook of 21st century pop icons BTS and rapper and actor Snoop Dogg to launch the first Xbox controller that sings.” he said.

Xbox is also giving away a custom “Bad Decisions” vehicle in the Forza Horizon 5 video game, and will have an in-game QR code so players can listen to the song.
By the way, the Xbox controller is not the first to include a speaker. Sony’s PlayStation 4 and PS5 and Nintendo’s Wii U are among the game systems with controllers that also featured speakers.
