The Xbox booth at PAX East 2015 is giving away some custom Xbox One controllers, as well as a custom Witcher 3 console, to a few attendees this weekend.

The controllers are based on various recent and upcoming Xbox One titles including Evolve, Halo 5: Guardians, and Battlefield Hardline. In order to win, PAX East 2015 attendees must be following @Xbox on Twitter, take a photo of their favorite custom controller or the console, and include a special hashtag in a tweet that contains the photo. For the controller contest, the tweet must contain "#XboxOne" and "#XboxSweeps," while console contest entries must contain "#XboxOne" and "#XboxWitcher3Sweeps."

While these aren't set for any kind of retail release at this time, it's always cool to see the rare controllers that pop up at the various expos and shows. Here's hoping some of these controller variants make it to retail in the future.
