These Custom Xbox Series X Consoles Are Being Auctioned Off To Help Aussie Researchers Fight Cancer

Gorgeous AND for a good cause!

Xbox ANZ and Cure Cancer have unveiled a trio of custom-made Xbox Series X consoles inspired by the award-winning cancer research of Dr. Arutha Kulasinghe of The University of Queensland. These gorgeous-looking and exclusive consoles are being auctioned off with the proceeds going to support the work of Cure Cancer, which also encompasses the excellent GameOnCancer community.

The designs on each of these consoles are inspired by Dr. Kulasinghe’s spatial tumour mapping approach, which is developed in collaboration with Akoya Biosciences and Nanostring Technologies, and can be life-changing for those who are undergoing cancer treatment.

“These groundbreaking realisations of how cells organise and communicate have been captured by these images that are now featured on the Xbox Series X consoles,” Dr. Kulasinghe explains. “With Xbox and Cure Cancer, we’ve been able to further highlight the transformative leaps we’ve achieved in cancer research.”

Cure Cancer’s CEO, Nikki Kinloch, adds, “It is truly incredible how this rare moment of scientific breakthrough is beautifully represented through this collaboration with Xbox. It brings much-needed awareness for supporting groundbreaking cancer research to the wider community, which has always been our mission at Cure Cancer.”

“We are extremely proud of Dr Arutha. Being able to see resistance and sensitivity to current generations of cancer therapies at the time of diagnosis is groundbreaking, and it can be life-changing for those who are going through cancer treatment.”

These consoles are on auction starting now and running until April 30th, and you can head to the GameOnCancer page here to bid on them. For the duration of the auction the custom-designed consoles will also be on display at the Microsoft Experience Centre at Westfield Sydney.
