Xbox Has Created Pizza-Scented Controllers Because Why Not At This Point


Just when you though Xbox was out of ideas for new controllers, it’s come back swinging with one of its most shell-brained ideas yet – pizza scented Xbox Wireless Controllers celebrating Paramount Pictures’ upcoming film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

Of course, these aren’t the kind of controllers to just line store shelves, instead you’ll have to enter a sweepstakes and wish really hard to be blessed with the stank of hot, cheesy bread circles whenever you want to have a quick go of Stacking – the excellent Xbox 360 puzzle adventure from Double Fine available through Backwards Compatibility. Apparently, the controllers have a “built-in scent diffuser” that’s basically a pizza-shaped attachment at the back that dispenses an odour I’m assuming is a fine blend of wet cardboard and lactose intolerant regret.
