Microsoft has announced two new controllers for the Xbox consoles. The new controllers are dubbed Electric Volt and Daystrike Camo Special Edition. The new controllers are compatible with the new Xbox Series S/X consoles, Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and Android mobile phones and tablets.
The Xbox Wireless Controller Electric Volt has a similar design to the Shock Blue and Pulse Red controllers. The top is covered in a yellow resin that is not available on any other Xbox hardware. The two joysticks have the same color. The underside of the controller keeps the same white finish as the Shock Blue and Pulse Red controllers.
Microsoft says the new controller will be available for $64.99 starting April 27 in most Xbox markets worldwide. It will also be available at select retailers and on the Microsoft Store.
The Xbox Wireless Controller Daystrike Camo Special Edition is the third in the Camo series. The other two are Night Ops Camo that was announced in 2019 and Arctic Camo Special Edition that was announced last year.
The new controller is a combination of two shades of red and a shade of gray and black. It is the first of the Camo edition with a textured grip for the triggers and also for the entire surface of the bumpers. The Camo Special Edition controller will go on sale on May 4 in most Xbox markets worldwide for $69.99.
Microsoft also announced new clothing gear alongside the new controllers. The Xbox Icon Collection which includes t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, and pants is inspired by the new controllers and will be available in unisex sizes starting April 21. Microsoft says there will be limited quantities available, so you should hurry once they are available.
