the volcano shadow is awesome and the rubber grips could be nice is done properly BUT I WILL NEVER EVER PAY $60+ for a F*CKING CONTROLLER!!!! they should be $50 max, f*ck $70, its just f*cking plastic!!! and its not even like they make it so consoles can play 4 people on one anymore anyway, ugh I f*cking hate the video game market now! I cant even say how many thousands of hours I played with 4 people in games like Twisted Metal Mario Kart and Halo1...

It's spelled adapter. With an e, not an o. Holy crap, now you have all the commenters spelling it wrong.
Ah typical American, doesn't know how the word is really slept smile

Each of the new controllers will connect with any Xbox One or Xbox One X once it comes out.
I would bloody well hope so. Would love to get one but already have 4.
UK tends to use Adaptor for devices & Adapter for people. US is the other way around.
Both are accepted but when you type "Adaptor" it spell checks to "Adapter."

Felt good to get my two cents in dance

Well considering that I only dropped my limited edition controller once, and from like a foot height unto a pretty darn fluffy carpet... Now it wont recognize any mic or accessory plugged into it - worthless trash is what I gotta say.
A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

Nice, but why do we still not have official wireless headsets? They should be standard by now.

Damn straight. I've been saying the same thing since Day 1. At least let my 360 Microsoft Wireless Headset work with the X1.

Killing it with these controller options, they all look pretty sweet.

Nice designs, wont buy one though as I dont know how they justify charging double just because of a coloured case.

I had to scroll back up when people started talking about the red one. It's orange!
Microsoft says it's red: smile

I believe the light grey with green accents are supposed to be XBox colors:

I must be getting feeble in my old age. I had glossed over that thinking it was Microsoft inspired. In my defense, I do believe that the article should have said Microsoft inspired and not Minecraft inspired. As you so aptly point out, there is no Minecraft theme but you do have the colors of the Microsoft XBox logo.

i think the post is in reference to design labs controllers, where you can maybe make a minecraft inspired controller. it doesn't mean you can buy a minecraft controller of the shelf, but design one yourself.

the post then goes on to mention 3 new controllers designs are available now(soon in some places)

the three controllers pictured you can buy of the shelf as such, green/grey, volcano shadow and patrol tech.

hope this helps

Is it possible to customize the pre made designs? Like to add the rubber grips or metallic triggers?

Yes. When you design the back, rubberized grips are available for $5.99 as an option:

https://xboxdesignlab.xbox.com/en-us/customize?productid=900...

A month or so ago, the Design Lab ran a special where you could get free rubberized grips with your purchase.

Volcano looks cool to me, but ain't got $70 to drop on a controller. Would rather get a game at that price! :o

They asked if it was possible to customize the pre-made designs, not the customizable designs....

Some of the pre-made designs referred to in the article can be 'edited.' The special Final Fantasy, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Forza Motorsport 7, & Sea of Thieves pre-made designs can be 'edited' to add the rubberized grips or metallic triggers that @Buttercup III inquired about. (Three of the four already have rubberized grips and all four have metallic triggers. However, colors can be changed, rubberized grips if part of the pre-made design can be removed, non-metallic triggers and D-pads can be substituted for the metallic triggers and D-pads that are part of the pre-made designs). Other pre-made designs referred to in the article, however, cannot be edited such as the Shadow series (not to be confused with the pre-made Shadow of War controller) or the Tech series.

One might note that the less expensive pre-made designs (69.99 USD) cannot be edited. The more expensive pre-made designs (beginning at 86.97 USD) can be edited.

I have had no problems with cn_RB or cn_LB on my recon tech controller. I've used it to play games where the buttons are used extensively.
