Xbox One Getting New Military-Themed Controller Line, See The First One Here

Introducing the Tech Series.


Microsoft has announced a new line of Xbox One controllers. The "Tech Series" features controllers that were inspired by "military technology and performance patterns," Microsoft said in a blog post.

The first controller, the Recon Tech Special Edition, sports symmetrical gold accents on its front. On its back, it has "diamond rubberized grip for added control and comfort." The new Xbox One controller that launched with the Xbox One S has grips, too; the launch version does not.

This controller goes for $70 and starts shipping worldwide on April 25. The other Tech Series controllers have yet to be announced, but, like the Recon Tech pad, Microsoft says they will "explore concepts stemming from combat armor and sci-fi mechanical gear."

Microsoft already offers lots of different Xbox One controllers, while the $80 Design Lab controllers allow you to customize the pad's colors and more to your liking. You can see all the Xbox One controllers here on Microsoft's website.

The new Xbox One controllers work with Xbox One and Windows 10, while they will also be supported on the new Project Scorpio system that comes out this year.
