It’s part of the highly-anticipated summer season blockbusters, and now even Xbox is getting in on the Barbie hype.
The gaming giant has unveiled a new pink model of its Xbox Series S console to celebrate the film’s imminent release.
“From her dream home to her dream closet, Barbie’s iconic style is unmatched,” explains Xbox.
“Now you can add her fashion genius to your gaming settings.”
Unfortunately, the brand new console comes with a catch: it can’t be purchased, and as an alternative, only a few lucky followers may have a chance to win it next month.

An impossibly shiny pink console at the entrance reads “Barbie.”
Plus, the console is built into the lower flooring of the gorgeous three-story Barbie Dreamhouse.
The second and third floors respectively house Barbie’s lounge and bedroom, each of which is (obviously) decorated entirely in pink.
Xbox has additionally revealed 5 interchangeable faceplates for the Xbox Wireless Controller designed after Barbie and Ken’s completely different outfits on the display screen.
Unfortunately, the Barbie-inspired Xbox Series S and controller faceplates aren’t usually available on the market, but it’s likely to be part of an exciting giveaway next month.
“Fans have a chance to win starting July 10 on @Xbox and Microsoft Rewards,” Xbox added.
Despite not being available for purchase, several ardent followers have taken to Twitter to discuss the brand new devices.
“Wait why is this making me switch from Playstation to Xbox,” one consumer wrote.
Another added: “I’m not even a console gamer but I need this immediately.”
And one mentioned: “Playstation drop the oppenheimer ps5 now.”
The information comes shortly after Warner Bros Entertainment released a freeware called Barbie selfie generator which turns your pictures into Barbie movie posters.
To test the software yourself, click Start and you’ll be prompted to take or add a photo of yourself.
Once you’re happy with your selection, click Continue, and your selfie is likely to become a movie poster.
To transfer an image, select the arrow on the right side and you will zoom in or out and transfer the selfie from the left to the right.
The software robotically selects a slogan for you, something like “This Barbie is an Optimist” or “This Barbie is an Astronaut.”
However, for those who are not satisfied with their queue, you will be able to edit it by clicking on the pencil icon and typing your favorite slogan in the text content field.
If you want your poster to be Ken, you can even customize it under the pencil icon.
Finally, you’ll be able to choose to change the color of the glow behind you by clicking on the palette icon on the right side.
When you’re happy with your poster, click Continue and you’ll also be given the option to own or share it on social media.
