The next-gen Xbox is a boxy-thing. While you don't have as much room for customization as the PS5, you can still get very creative with it. PS5's strength was the removable faceplates which provided a virtually limitless room for custom art. Xbox Series X excels in terms of its shape, which is sleek and cuboidal, making it easy to skin.
Today, we're looking at the best ways to customize your Xbox Series X.
Adventure Time BMO Xbox Series X
Have you ever wanted your own living console like the BMO from adventure time? Then this custom skin is here to make your childhood dreams come true. In addition to a gaming console, the OG BMO from adventure time was also a portable electrical outlet, computer, music player, VCR, video player, video editor, roommate, camera, alarm clock, toaster, flashlight, strobe light, skateboarder, soccer player, tape player, chef, detective, and friend. The Xbox Series X hits the spot on a few of those marks, but for the others like a soccer player, chef, detective, and friend, you'll have to wait a few decades.
Spongebob Xbox Series X
While the conception of this skill was a meme soon after the Xbox Series X was revealed, I for one believe that this is a piece of art. It was always meant to be this way. While no one is selling this state of the art custom Spongebob skin online, there are sellers who are taking orders for custom skins.
90's PC Case Xbox Series X
Ah, do you remember the good old days of gaming on Windows XP? Back then, 140p seemed too realistic and 24 FPS was ultra crazy. If you'd like to indulge in some nostalgia as well, then a 90s PC skin will work appropriately. Don't miss the classic beige tint on white that was a result of grease and dust, or did it come out of the factory in that beige colour? Guess we'll never know.
Amazon Box Xbox Series X
Okay, I'll be honest with you, but I don't see any reason why you'd want to wrap your Xbox Series X to look like an Amazon package unless there's a secret Amazon cult led by Beffoz. Nonetheless, it just looks cool and, if you live in a theft-prone area, then it's an excellent disguise for your Xbox Series X.
Tom Xbox Series X (from Tom and Jerry)
Building upon the memes, next up we have a Tom Xbox Series X from that time Tom turned into a cuboid. But unlike the Spongebob skin which you had to get custom printed, someone already made the Tom skin and I think it looks particularly appealing.
Interior Aesthetic Match
All the memes aside, the straight and boxy design of Xbox means that it can easily mingle with your interior finish and complement your TV stand. So if you've got a wood finish around your house, then opt for a similar wood skin. If it's a rustic concrete finish, then opt for a concrete skin. There are tons of natural-looking skins already out and about and, in case you don't find the one to match your aesthetic, you can always custom print one. This is the best way to customize your console if you want to keep it discrete and prevent it from standing out.
KingPin "Business is Boomin" Xbox Series X from Spiderman Into The SpiderVerse
We saved the best one for the end. Building upon the boxy aesthetics of the Xbox Series X, we have a KingPin Xbox Series X from Spiderman Into the Spiderverse. Unlike all the other designs listed here, KingPin is not a full skin but just a small sticker. The boxy design and the matte black finish of the console make it blend in. It's easy to apply and the chances of committing a mistake are pretty low as compared to a full-fledged skin.
Other Ways to Customize the Xbox Series X
Xbox Series X offers limited customizability, owing to its construction. Painting the console is a viable option if you're an experienced painter and take all the precautions to cover up any and all openings before getting your hands dirty. If you have even the slightest of doubts in your preparations or painting abilities, we'd recommend against it.
If you're looking for a truly unique Xbox Series X, then your best option is a custom skin. Many sellers online as well as on Esty are offering custom printing services that allow you to make your own skins.
