The Xbox Series X will come with a black updated controller, and the Series S will come with a white one. In addition, a third color — Shock Blue-will be available separately from November 10.
On the blue gamepad, the colors of the buttons with letters are more minimalistic-they are painted in the form of four dots.
In addition to this, Microsoft will release an updated bundle for PC. The next-generation Xbox controller will be available with both a wireless adapter and a wired connection via USB-C. In addition, it can also use Bluetooth.
In addition to the gamepads, Microsoft also introduced an updated version of its removable battery. It can be inserted into the controller instead of two batteries, and it charges up to 100% in about 4 hours-via a USB-C cable.
All gamepads, including the PC version, will work with significantly lower control latency than before. The “Share” button is also available on them.
In the US, the controllers will be sold for $60 without tax, and the battery will be sold for $25.
Gamepads can be pre-ordered from September 22, as well as the consoles themselves.
In the near future, Microsoft also plans to update its Xbox Design Lab program, which allows you to create a gamepad, according to the individual preferences of the player. It is not available in Russia.
