It has been 19 years since Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson unveiled the first Xbox alongside former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates. Since then, both The Rock and Xbox have come a long way. Just like Dwayne has risen to become one of the top actors in Hollywood, Xbox has also emerged as an industry leader.
The race of next-gen consoles is underway ahead of their launch. Both Sony and Microsoft not only want to flaunt their consoles but also their fans and partners. Sony initially teased its partnership with Travis Scott and has now released a music video as well. Similarly, Xbox sent a Series X replica refrigerator to Snoop Dogg in order to promote the next-gen Xbox Series X|S.
In a recent display, Microsoft showed their evergreen affiliation with The Rock. A picture has surfaced on the internet that shows Dwayne Johnson holding a unique Series X console.
Microsoft has awarded The Rock with a custom model Series X for his loyalty to the console over the last two decades. The console features Johnson’s signature ‘Brahma Bull’ logo.
Moreover, it also features a special message signed by the actor himself. It is uncertain whether the consoles are a gift to the actor or it is a limited edition model that Microsoft will retail to fans too.
The Rock’s connection to the Series X gives extra social capital to the Microsoft console. The move will probably attract his fans to purchase the next-gen Xbox consoles over the PS5. Johnson joins the long list of celebrities to show their affiliation to the Xbox.
This list also includes popular streamer SypherPK, who in an exclusive interview with EssentiallySports admitted he would prefer the Series X over the PS5.
A little over two weeks to go till the launch of next-gen consoles and the companies have a lot more in store coming for their fans.
