Update: Good news! Xbox Australia has just announced that Aussie fans will be able to get their hands on one of these Xbox Series X Console Wraps after all – with the Starfield Console Wrap launching on November 29th for $74.95.
Xbox has announced a brand-new, official option for customizing your Xbox Series X console that doesn’t involve removing and replacing any panels or forking out for a brand-new console – wraps.
Xbox Series X Console Wraps are designed to literally “wrap” around the Xbox Series X console and are then secured with a hook and loop enclosure. The insides are printed with silicone designs that help to keep the wrap even more secure, and they fit the console with a custom, precision fit that doesn’t compromising air flow or performance. All of the openings and ports are kept clear and they’ve even added small feet to the bottom of the wraps to ensure air can flow freely through the console.
Right now, Xbox has announced three designs including a Starfield wrap that echoes the design profile of the already-released Starfield Xbox Wireless Controller and Xbox Wireless Headset, and then two new Camo designs that will also be familiar to Xbox Controller collectors out there.
The Starfield design is launching in select regions on October 18th for $49.99 USD (about $80 AUD), while the Arctic Camo and Mineral Camo designs are launching in select regions on November 10th for $45 USD (around $70 AUD).
Xbox Australia has confirmed on social media that, unfortunately, at this stage these won’t be available to Aussies.
