Forza Motorsport fans rejoice! This new game will take full advantage of both next-generation Xbox consoles, complete with more than 500 cars, 800 unique upgrades, and 20 environments that include multiple track layouts.

This isn’t an early April Fools’ Day joke, but rather a real product that Microsoft unveiled for the holidays. Called the Xbox Mini Controller Hoodie, it’s designed to keep your gamepad nice and warm, thanks to its 100% Polyster construction. Just like a real hoodie, there is a zipper and tiny arm holes for the controller.

Well, according to principal designer Chris Kujawski the tower-like structure was so the team could retain a compact form factor for all of the next-generation hardware.

What if you were to combine both into a hybrid game console? Designer Ismail Mits gives us an idea of such a device.
