FIRST there was the Xbox Onesie.

Now to celebrate Australia Day, Microsoft Australia has announced the Limited Edition Inflatable Xbox One S Controller.

Microsoft Store Sydney says the inflatable is the 'perfect sidekick for those Australia Day pool parties'.

The device comes complete with two thumbsticks (for added grip) and two drinks holders, to keep swimmers hydrated throughout Australia's scorching summer.

A limited number of the wireless, pool-friendly controllers are available from today through the Microsoft Store Facebook page, with further distribution plans to be announced in the coming days.

But before you get too excited, it is not compatible with the Xbox One or Xbox One S gaming console, Xbox One Play and Charge Kit, Xbox One Chat Headset, or Xbox One Stereo Headset.

It is, however, suitable for use in swimming pools, fresh water pools or the ocean.
