Microsoft reveals fancy new Xbox One controller

Elbert EdwardsMar 22, 2017

The "Tech Series" features controllers that were inspired by "military technology and performance patterns", Microsoft said in a blog post. The first controller of the series, named Recon Tech Special Edition, will be available for $69.99 Dollars and is shipping to retailers worldwide starting April 25.

The Xbox One controller has went through a few iterations over the last several years.

Microsoft has announced a swell new Xbox One wireless controller design that should be ideal for gamers suiting up for their next FPS campaign.

With a stylised utilitarian look Xbox says was inspired by "military technology", "combat armour and sci-fi mechanical gear", the controller has etched textures on the front and back, apparently for grip.

Like Xbox's other wireless controllers, the new controller will include improved wireless range and Bluetooth Tech for Windows 10 and Samsung VR gaming. Also, the custom button mapping feature is available through the Xbox Accessories App.

Ever since the Pro controller came out, I thought that Xbox One needed something in the middle.

Microsoft already offers lots of different Xbox One controllers, while the $80 Design Lab controllers allow you to customize the pad's colors and more to your liking. This new Xbox Wireless Controller will cost $69.99 and it will be available worldwide starting April 25.
