Heads up, gamers: if you’re looking to add a little pizazz to your stash of Xbox accessories, Microsoft may have just the thing.
Redmond just announced two new color options for its Xbox Wireless Controller: red and green/orange.
The red option features a two-tone matte finish with “gloss highlights on the triggers, bumpers and D-pad, as well as behind the thumbsticks,” Bree White, global product marketing manager for Xbox accessories wrote in a blog post. It’s priced at $65, or $5 more than the standard model; if you’re interested, you can find it at the Microsoft Store, GameStop, and other select retail stores.
The green/orange model sports a green matte finish with glossy orange highlights and accents throughout. It’s also $65, and will be available via the Microsoft Store and Walmart on Jan. 24 and select retailers starting Jan. 31.
“Both controllers feature all the benefits of the latest Xbox Wireless Controller, including textured grip, improved wireless range and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 devices or on Samsung Gear VR,” White wrote. “You can also take advantage of the custom button mapping feature through the Xbox Accessories App, available for download from the Xbox Store or Windows Store.”
If these two color options don’t exactly strike your fancy, you can design your own Xbox controller in nearly any combination of colors you can think of via the Xbox Design Lab, just expect to pay a $20 premium.
Meanwhile, the new Xbox controller colors come after Sony yesterday unveiled a “glacier white” PlayStation 4, though there’s no word if and when it might be available in the U.S.
