New Green Xbox Controller Leaked, Could Be Out Very Soon

You're going to have to spend some green to get this green.


It looks like Microsoft will soon pull the cover off another new Xbox wireless controller. A leak suggests the company will release a Velocity Green pad on February 28.

Twitter user billbil-kun shared a blurred image of the unannounced Xbox pad, and they're someone who VGC notes had the jump on the Stellar Shift controller before Microsoft made it official. If the release date is accurate, the Velocity Green controller should be unveiled shortly.

Velocity Green is an option for the Xbox Design Lab. As such, we were able to get close to what the actual controller may look like if it's real. A couple of options weren't available, though, like making the Xbox button white and the view/share/menu buttons green. You can take a gander at our mockup below.

The Xbox Design Lab also started offering Xbox Elite Series 2 controller customization back in October. Velocity Green is an option for that pad too, if you want to upgrade over the standard.
