Microsoft and Nike team up to create Jordan-inspired Xbox One

While Microsoft gears up to release its new Xbox Series X console later this year, it’s not done with the Xbox One yet. The company teamed up with Nike’s Jordan brand to create a gorgeous, custom Xbox One, which one lucky Twitter user can win.

The limited-edition console is modeled after Nike’s new Air Jordan III Retro U sneaker. It comes with a bright red paint job, similar to the Chicago Bulls signature color, and Nike’s famous “Jumpman” logo appears right on top of the console. It even features a textured pattern similar to the one on the shoes themselves.

The console comes with two matching controllers, which feature the same red color scheme and a Jumpman logo in the right corner.

Microsoft originally teased the collaboration on February 11 in a tweet. The release lines up with the NBA’s All-Star weekend, which begins on Friday, February 14, in Chicago.

Securing one of these isn’t an easy task, though. Microsoft is running a sweepstakes through Twitter, where one winner will receive the console and two controllers. To enter, fans must follow the official Xbox Twitter account and retweet the announcement tweet, adding the hashtag #Xboxsweepstakes. To be eligible to win, Twitter users must register before the giveaway ends on February 27.

For those simply looking to pick up the shoes that inspired the new Xbox model, even that may prove difficult. The Air Jordan III Retro U sneakers are available this weekend at the All-Star Weekend festivities. However, the winner will have to travel to Chicago to secure a pair.

This isn’t the first time Microsoft has revealed a limited-edition Xbox One. Last year, Microsoft teamed up with Taco Bell to create a custom console that makes the fast-food chain’s iconic ring noise every time the console powers on. The new Air Jordan-inspired system is a bit slicker by comparison, especially if you’re an NBA die-hard.

Still, with the Xbox Series X merely months away, it feels like odd timing to debut a custom console. Then again, it’s never a bad time to win a free console, especially one that looks this good.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

I’m secretly hoping that the leaked all-white Xbox Series X isn’t real
An Xbox Series X sits next to both Series S models.

Xbox Microsoft

Xbox’s anticipated mid-generation console refresh might be right around the corner. Over the past few weeks, there have been some rumblings that an all-white Xbox Series X may be coming this year. That rumor kicked into second gear when Exputer posted photos it says it received of the device. The leaked images show a standard Xbox Series X with a white casing. The design is about the same, but there’s one key difference: It doesn’t have a disk drive. If the rumors are proven true, that’ll be the system’s selling point, potentially putting it at a lower price point than the current Series X.

How Intel and Microsoft are teaming up to take on Apple
An Intel Meteor Lake system-on-a-chip.

It seems like Apple might need to watch out, because Intel and Microsoft are coming for it after the latter two companies reportedly forged a close partnership during the development of Intel Lunar Lake chips. Lunar Lake refers to Intel's upcoming generation of mobile processors that are aimed specifically at the thin and light segment. While the specs are said to be fairly modest, some signs hint that Lunar Lake may have enough of an advantage to pose a threat to some of the best processors.

Today's round of Intel Lunar Lake leaks comes from Igor's Lab. The system-on-a-chip (SoC), pictured above, is Intel's low-power solution made for thin laptops that's said to be coming out later this year. Curiously, the chips weren't manufactured on Intel's own process, but on TSMC's N3B node. This is an interesting development because Intel typically sticks to its own fabs, and it even plans to sell its manufacturing services to rivals like AMD. This time, however, Intel opted for the N3B node for its compute tile.
