Xbox One controllers are about to get even more colourful as two new finishes join the lineup, with a special newspaper edition (It’s red all over! I’m here all week…) and a stealthy green and orange-accents combo.
Both are stuffed with all the guts in the latest standard controller, including the textured grip and Bluetooth built-in for compatibility with Windows 10.
The red one is available now at Microsoft Stores and GameStop stores across the US for $64.99, with the Green/Orange model set to join it later this month on January 31. No word yet on UK and European availability and pricing but hopefully we’ll know more soon!
The Xbox 360 was no stranger to a few remote control’s for it’s DVD player and Media Centre, and if you thought the Xbox One had escaped its own remote control – think again! Amazon had listed an Xbox One Remote Control with an image stating a release date for March 2014.
It’s a minimalistic design and will retail for around $25.00, but considering you can control Xbox One functions with voice, gesture, smartglass and a controller – do you really need the remote control for your movies and music? Really?
If this floats your boat, we’ll keep you posted on a European release when Microsoft make any official announcements.
Mad Catz has announced today that it has started working with Microsoft on the development of next generation accessories for the Xbox One. Whilst not confirming which accessories, but headsets and controllers are the most obvious assumptions.
“We are eagerly looking forward to the upcoming launch of the Xbox One and excited about the opportunity to develop a range of innovative products to support the platform.” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “The launch of the Xbox One adds a new revenue stream and the enhanced performance of the Xbox One opens up additional scope for innovation. Today’s announcement demonstrates our continued support of Microsoft’s console and entertainment business and is part of our long-term strategy to bring innovative products to passionate gamers.”
The Xbox One from Microsoft is expected to launch this holiday.
