Microsoft’s New Translucent Xbox Controller Looks Pretty Hot

Microsoft is expanding its official collection of Xbox wireless controller with two new controllers: the Phantom Black Special Edition and a simple Grey/Blue colorway controller.

If you are looking to get a new controller, you probably won’t go for the Grey/Blue controller. So let’s talk about the Phantom Black Special Edition one instead. It has a beautiful translucency with a gorgeous combination of the matte black and champagne gold colours. The champaign gold fades away to the translucent matte black to give you a look inside the controller, which looks really dope. The entire controller itself isn’t translucent, but the top part really does look awesome with the translucency.

You can pre-order the $69.99 controller in the United States and Canada here — it’ll start shipping on the 11th of September. As for the simpler Grey/Blue controller, you can order one for $64.99 — ships September 25.
