Microsoft Introduces Two New Xbox Wireless Controllers

Posted on March 25, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in PC gaming, Xbox, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X with 2 Comments

If the stock Xbox Wireless Controllers are too tame for you, Microsoft now offers new Electric Volt and Daystrike Camo Special Edition versions.

“As we continue to expand our collection of Xbox Wireless Controllers, we aim to bring new controller designs to our fans to expand their own,” Microsoft’s Navin Kumar explains. “We recognize what speaks to you will differ from other Xbox fans, from exciting, visually appealing designs to features that enhance performance, or both. Today, we’re excited to introduce not one, but two new Xbox Wireless Controllers to add to your personal collection.”

They are:

Xbox Wireless Controller – Electric Volt. Like the Shock Blue and Pulse Red controllers, the Electric Volt controller offers a striking multi-tone color scheme, in this case using a yellow resin that Microsoft says is “not yet seen on Xbox hardware.” The new Xbox Wireless Controller – Electric Volt will be available for $64.99 beginning April 27 in most Xbox markets worldwide.

Xbox Wireless Controller – Daystrike Camo Special Edition. This new controller is the third in Microsoft’s Camo series, following Night Ops Camo and Arctic Camo Special Edition, but it’s the first in the latest generation of Xbox controllers. It offers “a palette of deep reds paired with grey and black,” Microsoft notes, and has a textured grip across the entire top surface of the bumpers, a first for a cama controller. The Xbox Wireless Controller – Daystrike Camo Special Edition will be available for $69.99 starting May 4 in most Xbox markets worldwide.

    I wish Microsoft would launch controllers like these, optionally, in Elite-editions. Or is this already available?
