Xbox has revealed itself as the newest business to join the BTS Army by releasing a special edition controller that "sings" their new collaboration with Snoop Dogg and Benny Blanco, "Bad Decisions.
The controller comes in a striking red and white color scheme, with the faceplate bearing the title "Bad Decisions" and the names of the song's three authors. It is fully compatible with the Xbox line of gaming consoles but is "intended for display use only." A speaker built into the controller's back plays a brief clip of the song when a button is pressed.
Fans hoping to buy one of the controllers are out of luck, though: only 30 of them have been made, and all of them will be available exclusively through a Twitter competition.

Adding to Xbox’s promo for 'Bad Decisions’, Forza Horizon 5 has been updated to include an unlockable vehicle (a Meyers Manx, to be specific) with a paint job based on the single’s cover art.
Bad Decisions arrived last Friday (August 5) alongside a video in which Benny Blanco excitedly prepares for a BTS concert, baking them a cake and creating an elaborate heart collage. Four members of BTS—Jungkook, Jimin, V, and Jin—have guest spots in the song.
Blanco first teased the new song in July, saying he was “still pinching myself” about the star-studded collaboration. The announcement came less than a month after Blanco remixed three BTS fan-favourites – "Life Goes On", "Fake Love", and "Blood, Sweat & Tears" – into a new medley.
