Even though Xbox fans can now create customized versions of the basic Xbox One controller with Microsoft’s Xbox Design Lab, the company has yet to offer custom design options for its premium Xbox Elite Controller. Until now, the $149 controller was only available in black, but Microsoft is launching today a White Special Edition that should go along well with a white Xbox One S.
There is really nothing special about this new white Xbox Elite controller, except its color. Microsoft has kept the same swappable components (thumbsticks, D-pads, and paddles), Hair Trigger Locks, Rubberized diamond grip and button mapping options through the Xbox Accessory app. And to be clear, this white Xbox Elite Controller uses the same Xbox wireless technology as the original model, and there’s no Bluetooth support like on the new standard Xbox controllers.
You can pre-order the $149.99 white Xbox Elite controller at the Microsoft Store today, and it will start shipping worldwide on October 16. If you always wanted to have a white Xbox One X, the company also announced an Xbox One X Robot White Special Edition Fallout 76 bundle today, which will be available worldwide starting November 14.Further reading: Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, Xbox One
