Known as the Lunar New Year Xbox One Art Series, these one-of-a-kind consoles are conceptualised, designed and fabricated over a two-week period to capture the Lunar New Year’s spirit of festivity, togetherness and sharing.
The console designs feature not only the monkey, but also traditional symbols associated with the festival, such as gold ingots and bright red candy boxes.
