The cake is not a lie: Asda and Tesco to stock the official Xbox Controller cake

I am sure you have seen the videos that are doing the rounds on the internet showing seemingly real objects that are actually amazing cakes. Good news, soon you can have your ultra realistic Xbox controller cake to fool your friends!

Laugh hilariously as the pick it up to play Halo and find it’s made of sponge and icing! Chuckle as they press a button and find their thumb sinking in to the cakey goodness! What japes you can have! Let’s take a look a the cake…


Oh. Well it’s, er, close I guess? Maybe.If you squint.

The controller is a sponge cake with a later of scrummy raspberry jam and edible decorations, is nut free, and will be coming to Asda and Tesco next month.

In other Xbox news, Microsoft have announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be gaining free game streaming via Project xCloud on 15th September. From that date, any subscriber in 22 countries will be able to play over 100 games from the service on Android phones and tablets. This will include Xbox Games Studios titles as they launch into Xbox Game Pass later this year and beyond.

Cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Leaning on Android’s support for bluetooth controllers, you’ll be able to play using the official Xbox One controller or DualShock 4 – if you were looking for something to use it for in future – with additional controllers and accessories coming from Razer, PowerA, 8BitDo, and Nacon to either attach a phone to a controller, or some Joy-Con style controllers to the side of a phone or tablet.
