The one-of-a-kind Xbox One X Air Jordan consoles are the swaggiest ever

Microsoft has teamed up with Nike to create a trio of Xbox One X consoles inspired by the latest Air Jordan III basketball shoes.

In a tweet on Friday, Microsoft unveiled three different, one-of-a-kind consoles it will give away to three lucky winners.

The consoles boast individual designs inspired by each of the three shoes; the Air Jordan III Free Throw Line, Air Jordan III Black Cement and Air Jordan III Tinker.

All you have to do is retweet the below post to be in with a chance of winning. Unfortunately, it’s only open to gaming fans in the United States. Boo and hiss.

The promotion runs until February 21 at 10pm Pacific Time.

In a post on the Xbox Wire blog, the company says the consoles are to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Jordan’s unforgettable slam dunk during the All-Star weekend in 1988. During the annual dunk contest on the eve of the all-star game, Jordan took off from the free throw line. You can see it below.

Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing, wrote: “The Free Throw Line Xbox One X pays homage to the unforgettable dunk by Michael Jordan in 1988. The Black Cement Xbox One X is inspired by the sneakers with all the same detailing which made these, considered by many, the greatest sneakers of all-time, and the Tinker Xbox One X showcases Tinker Hatfield’s original design for what the shoe was going to be.”

The question is, if you were to win, would you keep the console or sell it, buy a regular console and still have a ton of cash left over for games?
