Fancy some origami while you wait for your Xbox Series X to arrive? Well, Microsoft is offering Papercraft Kits with some Xbox Series X pre-orders, albeit only Germany. You can print out your own Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S 'Papercraft Kit' worldwide, though.

Microsoft is running a rather fun Xbox Series X pre-order bonus for those who live in Germany. Announced ahead of the next wave of pre-orders, select Media Markt and Saturn stores will offer a 'Papercraft Kit' to build a mockup Xbox Series X ahead of the console's arrival next month. 

The Papercraft Kit is a 1:1 cardboard model of the Xbox Series X, allowing you to find the optimal position for your impending console at home before you get your hands on one. Pre-orders participating in this promotion can then return to Saturn or Media Markt on November 10 to pick up the real Xbox Series X - the full list of participating stores can be found on Xbox.de.

Fear not though, as you can still print a true-to-scale version of the Xbox Series X at home, should you wish to do so. Microsoft has also published the files for a 1:1 scale of the Xbox Series S, along with 1:3 scale files too.
