A while has passed since we last saw a new controller variant for the Xbox One. Not counting the amazing Xbox Adaptive Controller for those who have problems handling the default controller, the last one was the Combat Tech Special Edition controller revealed at the start of March. Never fear, those of you who collect controllers will be glad to know that another one will soon be arriving in stores: the Sport White Special Edition.
As the name suggests, the controller has been inspired by "trends in athletics and sports lifestyle". The white base colour is the same white that's available in the Xbox Design Lab, but it will also come with mint accents and a grey and silver pattern. The back of the controller will have a grey rubberised diamond grip. As is expected of all of the Xbox controllers, there will also be a 3.5mm headphone jack, and bluetooth technology so the controller can be used on a Windows PC or Samsung VR.
Those looking for a bit of extra style may also want to pluck for the accompanying Sport White Special Edition Xbox Pro Charging Stand that perfectly matches the controller. The stand includes a battery cover, rechargeable battery and 6ft power lead.
The controller will be available on July 31st in North America and August 7th worldwide for US$69.99 or regional equivalent. Players who purchase the controller in certain countries will also get a 14 day trial for both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. At the moment, it appears the stand will only be available in North America from August 7th — it will set you back US$49.99. You can pre-order the controller from the Microsoft Store in certain regions through the button below:
