Xbox controllers, now in two extra colors.


Xbox followers can now choose up the usual wi-fi controller in two extra color schemes, which Microsoft has named Red and Green/Orange.

The crimson one is an unusually carmine hue, which makes it especially appropriate for use with Gears of Wars. We’ve dubbed it “drying blood”, which is probably a bit melodramatic, but it surely’s not precisely the shiny sports activities automotive color we usually get with this stuff. A extra grown up, restrained crimson choice, maybe.

In the US, you may seize this one from as we speak at both the Microsoft Store or GameStop. Worldwide, it’s coming to “select retailers” – seemingly the large chains.

Green/Orange sounds prefer it should be some type of tropical frog mixture, the type that warns birds consuming you’ll end in a terminal abdomen ache, and advertises a helpful supply of toxin for arrowheads. But Microsoft’s interpretation is a type of soiled khaki that appears extra like brown on my monitor, and a disappointingly modest quantity of orange, AKA one of the best color. Add some toggles and pockets and also you’d have a pleasant set of cargo pants.

This one gained’t be obtainable until January 24 within the US, once you’ll have the ability to seize it from the Microsoft Store or Walmart. It’s additionally coming to “select retailers” worldwide, however not until January 31.

Both new Xbox controllers go for $65 and can be utilized with Windows 10 and Samsung Gear VR along with all fashions of Xbox One.
