Here's an NES-style Xbox One controller

Reddit user gives Microsoft controller a lovely paint job.

If you're upset that the Xbox One controller only comes in black, you could try painting your gamepad to give it another look, like Reddit user alechere did recently.

This lovely Xbox One paint job goes retro by styling the controller to look like a NES gamepad. You can purchase the controller from Envy Gaming for $140.

If that's not enough, you can also buy NES-inspired full console skins for your Xbox One (or PlayStation 4) through House of Grafix.

Unless you work for Microsoft, your only color option for the Xbox One console and controller is black, though a Titanfall-inspired controller will be available when the game launches in March.

I have both and i think the ds4 feels better and has more potential...the xb controller isnt much different than the360s theres nothing wrong with it, its all about prefrence. Seems like all your comments are pro xb and you have nothing good to say about the ps4...which in turn makes you a fanboy and your opinion isnt credible.

The only thing bothering me bout the controller is the d pad it looks like its sunken in

You didn't see through anything. You just whined about how awesome you think the Xbone is.

Lol. I love how you're comparing Sony (an entire company) vs. a console. A console alone can take down a company, that's how great the Xbox One is. :D

Lol... troller? That's not even a word. The term is Troll. You're not the brightest bulb of the bunch are you. I don't think you're a very good troll as I saw right through it and that inspired my comment. XD

That's debatable, but I seem to like the One controller a little better simply for the shape and size of my hands. Although I will admit the thumbsticks are a bit small but they make up by adding that real grip pat on the edges so I guess it depends on the size of your hands. I have rather large hands and the X1 controller feels more natural to me.

@themc_7 As an xbox one owner, I couldn't give a shit about this. I don't look at the controller - other than because the controller synching on Xbox One doesn't work so I have to look at it until it does its job.

@Grenadeh @themc_7 My controller came synced out of the box and since Day one hasn't become desynced once. you must be unlucky

Gross. No Microsoft controller is worthy of such an iconic design. Also, it just looks ugly on the controller, period.

I bet this doesn't screw over your thumbs like the original NES one though. Got the thumb of a miner. Just the thumb. Just a gritty, thick skinned thumb and baby soft on the rest of your hand.

I like the controller, but the brackets feel funny after 8 years of 360 controllers on both the console and the PC

I don't really think it's actually possible to make the Xbox controller look nice. It might be functional, but it sure is ugly.

Doesn't work for me. That's not a "OMFG INSULT TO NES I'M A FANBOY LOOK AT ME!!!" comment, I just think it doesn't really work on that controller.

@Warlord_Irochi Facebook people can't see your replies and can't reply back to you. They are in a little facebook bubble. So there isn't any point replying to them.

@rarerichz @rasterror @Godly_Kongming Worse when people say "I could of done that". OMG That pisses me off. It is HAVE, could HAVE. 

Ffs, those people need to read a book, how can you replace a word with something that sounds vaguely like it? 

I know accents are to blame but fucking hell.
