This new Stellar Shift controller is the latest version of the controller, featuring textured grips for the triggers, bumpers, and back to help users keep hold of it better. Unique to this controller is a dynamic background that features a deep purple and blue swirling design. Check it out:

The previously released Aqua and Lunar controllers sold out quickly at most places, so anyone interested in the new Stellar controller may want to try to snap it up ASAP.

In other Xbox news, Microsoft recently laid off 10,000 people, including nearly 100 at Halo developer 343 Industries. Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer defended the job cuts, saying they were difficult but necessary to help improve Microsoft's overall business performance.
