Xbox has revealed its Pride collection for 2021 that gamers are going to love.

The range from Microsoft and Xbox features a brand new logo highlighting the many different LGBT+ flags.

The main collection is now available from the Xbox website here, while Surface Skins are available from the Microsoft US website or Microsoft UK website.

The Xbox collection features t-shirts, tank tops, tote bags and stickers with a reimagined logo for Pride, which intertwines the transgender, lesbian, bisexual, non-binary, intersex and inclusive flags.

Gamers can also get their hands on Halo, Psychonauts and Age of Empires branded Pride merch, again featuring the new colourful Xbox logo.

The brand also revealed a Pride 2021 Xbox wireless controller, but unfortunately it won’t be available for purchase.

This is much to the disappointment of fans, including one Twitter user who said: “Ok but this Pride-themed Xbox controller is really awesome. Make it available to purchase plz.”

Instead gamers can buy the Surface Skin design for the Surface Laptop, Pro, Book or Go with the graphic combining flags of the LGBT+ communities in an “interwoven energetic way, creating a sense of unity, and evoking both technology and the modern age.”

The Pride Surface Skin is priced at $9.99-$14.99 or £14.99 and you can get them from the Microsoft US website or Microsoft UK website.

While revealing the collection Microsoft said: “Gaming is a big part of the lives of many LGBTQIA+ players and it’s important that we celebrate everyone who plays.

“At Xbox, we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive space for all members of LGBTQIA+ communities to experience the joy of gaming and we are championing content that represents all of today’s players.

“We will continue to do our part to ensure that everyone can play as their authentic selves and feel empowered and represented throughout the industry.”

Microsoft and Xbox have also confirmed a $150,000 donation to LGBT+ non-profits, as well as highlighting stories of Team Xbox and Microsoft members.

To shop the Xbox Pride collection head to the Xbox website here, while Surface Skins are available from the Microsoft US website or Microsoft UK website.
