You know something’s part of the cultural zeitgeist when it has its own custom, branded Twitter emoji and as of Monday evening Microsoft’s upcoming next-generation Xbox Series X console has been added to that prestigious list in anticipation of its November 10th release date.
Twitter users who add any of the following hashtags to their tweets will notice a little Xbox Series X emoji beside it, trademark green glow (well, green plastic disc above the fan, technically) and all:
The PS5 has already featured a branded emoji for #Playstation5 related hashtags for some time now, a miniaturized blue, black and white DualSense controller.
And yes, we’re definitely overly (some might say egregiously) enthusiastic about the impending release of the Xbox Series X on November 10th and the Playstation 5 on November 12th — so much so that we’re writing about branded hashtags for the respective systems on Twitter. The hype is real.
