Microsoft created a translucent controller for the Xbox's 20th birthday

It will go on sale precisely 20 years after the pristine Xbox release.


On November 15, 2001, Microsoft released the original Xbox, in the process, permanently replacing the console landscape. Twenty years later, the company plans to celebrate the day of inchoation of its first home system by placing a handful of translucent adjuncts, including the Xbox series X / S controller visually perceived above.



According to Microsoft, the translucent design refers to C-through controllers that are shipped with the original Xbox debug kit although I imagine for most people they are likely to be reminiscent of the N64's iconic atomic purple controller, and that's a good thing. . . One nifty touch here is that Microsoft has made the interior components silver to make them easier to see. The brand’s signature green is used for accent details, including the back grip.


At another scene, it’s functionally kindred to any other Xbox wireless controller you can buy from Microsoft. Expect Bluetooth for PC and mobile pairing, support for button mapping and better D-pads than found on controllers of anterior Xbox Pay generations.

You can pre-order the 20th Anniversary Special Edition Controller for $ 69.99 starting today on the Microsoft Store. Arrive November 15th, it will also be available through additional retailers. If you can't integrate another controller into your storage, Microsoft plans to release the 20th Anniversary Special Edition stereo headset that will retail at 69.99. Sadly, it doesn't have as much translucent aesthetics on the back but it still seems to be the right showpiece.
