It's become a regular event. A couple times a year Microsoft will develop new controller colors and offer them at select retailers across the US. With a new year brings another set which stands in stark contrast to last time's blue and pink/black.
If you're interested in red, here are the details:
The first new controller is the Xbox Wireless Controller – Red , which has a two-tone matte red finish with gloss highlights on the triggers, bumpers and D-pad, as well as behind the thumbsticks. The Xbox Wireless Controller – Red is available now in the U.S., exclusively at Microsoft Store, microsoftstore.com and GameStop, for $64.99 USD. The controller is also shipping to select retailers worldwide today.
If you prefer the look of green and orange:
The second new controller is the Xbox Wireless Controller – Green/Orange, which has a similar design to the Xbox Wireless Controller – Red, but it’s green with orange accents. This controller comes with a green matte finish and gloss highlights on the triggers, bumpers and D-pad, as well as orange accents behind the thumbsticks. The Xbox Wireless Controller – Green/Orange is shipping exclusively to Microsoft Store, microsoftstore.com and Walmart in the U.S. on January 24, and is priced at $64.99 USD. The controller will also be available at select retailers worldwide starting January 31.
Of course, both of these controllers come with the latest controller updates like increased range, Bluetooth, and the much-loved textured grip (presumably the same as on the rare Lunar controller). Which one will you buy?
