Two New Special Edition Xbox Series X/S Controllers Are Coming Soon

Breaking the curse of dull-colored Xbox series controllers, two new controllers in exclusive colorways have been announced.

The Xbox Series consoles have been fantastic so far in the latest generation of gaming. Its integration with the Xbox Game Pass has made Microsoft the champion of the casual gamer, and has more than proven that Xbox knows exactly what they're doing with the latest generation.

The games are of course the driving force of gaming, but it certainly helps to have a console that can manage such high-running specs as the Series X can. But, one of the best and most subtle changes to the consoles so far have been the controllers.

Slightly grippier handles and a share button might seem like minor changes, but quite frankly, they've made the gaming experience much more streamlined. It's clear that Xbox is meaning to steer gaming into a more collaborative and community-driven experience, and even the controller redesign shows it.

But, the controllers suffer from being a little mundane. As we're not so far into the console generation there hasn't been much time to innovate in the world of design.

So, since launch, beyond the super-fancy red Xbox Series controller, and the Shock Blue controller from launch, fans have been stuck with controllers that match their console's color scheme.

Until now.
