Xbox just revealed a sleek new line of custom controllers, and a brand new wireless controller adapter for you to use on your desktop or laptop. The controllers themselves are gorgeous, coming in three distinct new colors. Anyone who sees any of these controllers in your studio or play room will notice them straight away, and when you take these out and about, you can be sure that yours will be the hottest controller in the room.
These controllers will work with any Xbox in the Xbox One system of families, and Microsoft confirmed that these controllers will work on the Xbox One X as well, so don't worry: you're totally future-proof. Let's take a look at all three of the new controllers below, where we'll also provide links for you should you want to pre-order one of them. These custom controllers can take time and often come in limited supply, so if you want one, pull the trigger sooner than later.
