New Xbox Pulse Red Controller Is Up For Preorder, Releases Next Month

The Xbox wireless controller's brand-new color is available to preorder ahead of its February release.


The new model Xbox wireless controllers launched alongside the Xbox Series X|S with three color options: Carbon Black, Robot White, and Shock Blue. Earlier this week, Microsoft announced the first brand-new color being added to the line: Pulse Red. The new controller features a stunning red, white, and black color scheme, and if you're hoping to add it to your setup, preorders for the Pulse Red Xbox controller are available now.

The new Pulse Red Xbox controller combines its striking color with the same upgraded design of the new Xbox wireless controller, including a hybrid D-pad, a textured grip on the triggers and bumpers, and new Share button. While released for the Xbox Series X|S, it'll work with Xbox One as well if you haven't upgraded to the new console.

If you want to save some cash, Best Buy currently has the three original colors on sale. The Shock Blue controller is down to $55 (normally $65), while the Carbon Black and Robot White versions are $50 each (normally $60).
