Xbox Body Wash Is Here To Remind Gamers To Bathe

Slowly, gaming brands will encroach all parts of your life

We reported before on Razer working on creating their own Razer toaster, likely to help gamers be a winner while being well fed with toast. Now it looks like Microsoft wants gamers to look into their personal care by releasing new Xbox-branded body wash, shower gel, and deodorant.

Partnering with Axe body spray, these products will only be exclusive to Australians and launched in July. According to GameSpot, Microsoft's marketing tactic is to expect gamers to “power up” with Xbox Lynx products before leaving the house, presumably where they will do the absolute minimum required of them before returning home to game.

“We see Xbox fans achieve incredible things every day, and we wanted to celebrate that elevated skill, passion and determination by creating something truly special,” said Tania Chee, the business group lead for Xbox Australia / New Zealand, in a statement. “Now, powering up can be as simple as a quick spray before you head out the door.”

What does Xbox personal care products smell like? Microsoft claims it's fruit, herbs, and various styles of wood. “Lynx Xbox is a fresh scent of pulsing green citrus, featuring top notes of kaffir lime and winter lemon, aromatic herbal middle notes of mint and sage, and woody bottom notes of patchouli and clearwood,” reads the product description. “Containing a range of natural essential oils, the Xbox Lynx range comes with a sleek new look and features a body spray, deodorant, and shower gel.”

Well ladies with boyfriends or husbands who are gamers, you know what to get for your man this Christmas. Just make sure he's an Xbox fan first.
