Microsoft has made a new Xbox controller, this time with a fresh “sporty” look.
Dubbed the Xbox Wireless Controller—Sport White Special Edition, the controller costs $69.99 and will arrive in stores on July 31st. The controller is white on the front and sides, with a turquoise back panel and a gray wraparound diamond pattern. These diamonds form a rubberized grip that makes the controller easier to hold.
According to Microsoft’s description, the controller was “inspired by trends in athletics and sports lifestyle,” and will be the first controller of many in a new Sport series.
The controller can also be bought along with a new Sport White Special Edition Xbox Pro Charging Stand, a special charger that’s built with a matching design. This charging stand can be bought separately for $49.99 and will be available shortly after the controller itself, arriving in stores on August 7th.
The controller also comes with a few small bonuses, depending on where you buy it from. Some “select markets” will offer a 14-day trial for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass with a purchase, letting you jump right in to a variety of different games.
If you choose to order the controller online, it will ship out on August 7th, the same day as the charging stand goes on sale. Otherwise, the controller should be available to pick up in-person in stores on July 31st.
