…well rather than just tell you, let’s also show you because today these 3 announced a major collaboration.  Ahead of Greta Gerwig’s eagerly anticipated upcoming “Barbie” film there was a MAJOR announcement in the gaming world.  Xbox and Forza Horizon 5 are embracing the Barbie girl who’s living in her Barbie world and you better like pink.

Today Xbox teased that they will be giving away this FABULOUS Xbox Series S that has been built into a stupendous, extravagant Barbie Dream House and it’s all enveloped in her favorite color.  They will also be offering multiple, interchangeable Xbox Wireless Controller faceplates ​which are designed after Barbie and Ken’s distinct on-screen outfits.  (Fans will have a chance to win these starting on July 10 on @Xbox and Microsoft Rewards.)

If you are a Forza Horizon 5 enthusiast, you will be able to join in the Barbie fun.  As you probably know, Barbie is driven by her various ambitions, and she always does it in style. The film sees Barbie hit the road in a classic 1956 Chevrolet Corvette EV Corvette — painted her signature pink hue, of course — while Ken cruises alongside in a 2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup.

Now, Forza Horizon 5 players can join them in virtual versions of both cars. Racing at the intersection of style, speed and self-expression, “Barbie” fans new and old can find the inspiration to follow their own road and get in the game. Everyone who plays Forza Horizon 5 will be gifted these themed cars — just download them from the in-game Message Center and they will appear in your garage, ready for racing – even if you don’t live in Barbie Land. 

Now these things alone are a LOT.  I mean, that’s a whole lotta Barbie coming your way but… there is something else for old school Barbie collectors.

When everybody plays, we all win! Like the cinematic Barbie Land, Xbox is a community made better by how inclusive it is. To celebrate our commitment to being a place for everyone, we’ve rounded up ten Barbie dolls that are reflective of the Barbie line, which is the most diverse doll line on the market.  We outfitted them with the latest Xbox Gear fashion, as well as accessories including an Xbox Series S console, Wireless Controller and an Adaptive Controller. Fans can win the dolls as part of an international sweepstakes.  

Let your anxiety begin because winning these tremendous Barbie baubles is going to be, let’s face it… enraging.  Take a deep breath… enter the contest on July 10th…exhale… and leave the rest to the fates.  At that point, you’ve done all you can do and no amount of grumbling will help your odds of winning.  Instead, just channel your inner Ken or Barbie, and smile….
