Xbox has revealed a new Xbox Wireless Controller -- "Pulse Red" -- with an all-new color scheme focusing on bright red, black, and white. The new controller color joins the previous official Xbox Wireless Controller color schemes of "Carbon Black," "Robot White," and "Shock Blue." While the official design is totally new, the underworkings of the Xbox Wireless Controller are not, so this is really just another color scheme for folks to pick from when trying to decide which one to grab.
The new "Pulse Red" controller is set to be available more widely on February 9th for $64.99 but will be available beginning tomorrow, January 12th, in China (UPDATE: Pre-orders are live here at Best Buy in the U.S.). "With a vivid, fiery-red topcase and crisp, white backcase, the new Pulse Red controller brings the same energy and equally striking color as the Shock Blue," Xbox says of the new controller design. "Matte black triggers, bumpers, and hybrid D-pad reduce slip against sweaty fingers and thumbs for greater control, while a textured dot pattern on the triggers and bumpers to keep your grip locked in."
