Xbox Onesie: Fashion for lounge lizards unveiled

AFTER unveiling its new smaller,more powerful Xbox One S console, the team at Xbox Australia have gone into the fashion business.

While they are hardly likely to be seen on the catwalks of New York, Milan or Paris, the limited edition Xbox Onesie could (maybe) appeal to gamers and lounge lizards in general.

The outfits are being described as the 'perfect loungewear attire for true entertainment fans'.

"The Xbox Onesie comes with everything an entertainment enthusiast could need when streaming a favourite TV show or film, watching a sports match or playing the ultimate gaming session,'' a media statement released on Tuesday enthuses.

"The Xbox Onesie has been custom designed to enhance the entertainment experience with features including:

  • Enlarged pockets to fit your Xbox Controller and Media Remotes
  • Arm pouch to offer quick and easy access to your mobile phone
  • Roll-able legs and arms to cater for all temperatures and seasons
  • Forearm grips to prevent slipping on those 'edge of your seat' moments
  • Extra-large hood to accommodate headsets for the ultimate gaming sessions
  • Customised Gamertag embroidery



It comes as Xbox Australia has released new research that shows Australian's are consuming entertainment at an ever growing rate, with four in five Australians (84 per cent) streaming up to ten hours of entertainment each week.

The survey of over 1,000 Australians - commissioned by Xbox to celebrate the launch of the new Xbox One S console, identified The Big Bang Theory as the most streamed television show (20 per cent), beating Game of Thrones (15 per cent) and MasterChef (15 per cent).

James Bond, the world's most revered secret agent, is the nation's favourite film or TV character, followed closely by Game of Throne's Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen, and the Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, Jon Snow.

And if we're gaming it's likely that we're playing Grand Theft Auto (18%), Tomb Raider or FIFA (14 per cent each) who took out the top three places for the nation's favourite gaming franchise.

The world's most famous tomb raider, Lara Croft, was the most popular gaming character, followed by the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog in second and Master Chief from the Halo franchise in third.

Some 23 per cent of Australians spending their leisure time watching various sports at home.

Approximately two thirds (63 per cent) of the sport watched is Australian, with Aussie Rules (AFL) identified as the nation's favourite sport (30 per cent), followed by NRL (20 per cent) and cricket (13 per cent) - with global heavyweights such as the NBA and English Premier League surprisingly at only 6 per cent each.
