You can win a limited edition Xbox and controller by eating Taco Bell

Do you like Taco Bell? Do you eat loads of Taco Bell? You’ll probably need to to have any chance of winning this new Xbox Elite 2 controller and Xbox One X console. 

Microsoft and Taco Bell have come together in launching a limited edition Xbox One X console and an exclusive controller.

“The exclusive platinum-coloured console comes packaged with Taco Bell’s famous ‘ring’ when powered on (exclusive to these limited-edition consoles), a new White Special Edition, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller and three months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.”
