On Xbox One, Microsoft had offered gamers a large collection of controllers. The colors and models were very numerous and offered a multitude of ways to express our tastes. On the Xbox Series X | The manufacturer seems to want to take the same path by regularly offering new models. After the Pulse Red and the Shock Blue, Xbox offers the Electric Volt with a yellow dress … and green at the same time! Let’s discover it in detail, with our in-house unboxing, photos and videos that are guaranteed to be without retouching!
L’Electric Volt : yellow or green ?
Based on the same models as the X | S-controllers of the Xbox series like the ones supplied with the consoles, the Electric Volt wears a bright yellow dress. At least that’s what Microsoft says in its press releases as it is actually getting closer to the green. A distinctly watered down green that ultimately matches the color Xbox uses in its latest communications.
However, if this green is to be so soft that it is sometimes mistaken for yellow in the photo, it does not lose any of its dynamism. The color is lively, clearly energetic and quickly seduces. The sticks are the same color as the menu, display and release buttons.
The buttons X, Y, B, A in turn display a black background, while the letters are highlighted by this new green. The BMD, LB and RB buttons, as well as the triggers, are also coated in black, in the continuity of what was previously offered by Shock Blue and Pulse Red. Ultimately, the battery cover and all of the back of that electric volt will maintain the white of that area.
A big success
Of the three colors Xbox has been offering since the launch of its new consoles, this electric green is the most successful in my opinion. The contrast with black is very pronounced, while the transition from the back of the controller to white is smoother than the blue or red of previous iterations. To be honest, it’s also the one that has the greatest success with my little daughter and my wife. If this is not a guarantee of quality! 😉
