On Monday – just hours after it unveiled its Bethesda acquisition and the day before the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S pre-orders officially – Microsoft unveiled its line of directors and accessories with Xbox next-gen.
On November 10, Microsoft will release the new Xbox Wireless Controller for Carbon Black (to match Xbox Series X) and Robot White (to match Xbox Series S). Microsoft will also be selling a new variant, Shock Blue, seen in the photo above. Those controllers will charge players $ 59.99 each, the same price as the Xbox One controllers.
Microsoft will also offer a range of PC controllers including an Xbox Wireless Controller to Carbon Black and a Windows 10 Wireless Adapter or USB-C Cable, depending on the bulk of your choice. The controls have built-in Bluetooth, if your PC supports that.
The Xbox Wireless Controller is slightly different from the familiar Xbox One controller players. Includes a hybrid D-pad and other hand-carved handles. It also offers a share button, similar to Sony’s DualShock controller 4. New Xbox Wireless Controllers running on Xbox Series X, Series S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and mobile devices that support controllers.
As usual, Microsoft will sell a paid solution – Xbox Rechargeable Battery and USB-C Cable bundle – that eliminates the need for AA batteries. A “play-and-charge” fan will charge players $ 24.99.
Microsoft has also announced that the Xbox Design Lab – an online store where players can customize and customize their Xbox controls – will enter the hiatus starting October 14. Players can order custom Xbox One controls until October 13. Microsoft will be taking offline service to update the Xbox Series X and Series S. The Xbox Design Lab will be back sometime in 2021.
Players can pre-order a variety of controls and a range of rechargeable batteries starting September 22. They will launch next to the Xbox Series X and Series S on November 10.
