Microsoft announced a slew of new Xbox products and platform news at their E3 Xbox event yesterday in Los Angeles. From a new Xbox One S to the upcoming mega-console, Project Scorpio, to new games and Xbox features, Microsoft didn’t disappoint. One of the new products is a new wireless controller to go along with the Xbox One S.
Although the Xbox One S itself is only available for pre-order at this point, the controller can be ordered today. And, it’s customizable, letting you pick the color, button controller design, and more. The process is fairly simple, to boot, and you can go straight to the Xbox Design Lab to get started.
First, select the color and design of each element, including:
- Bumpers and triggers
- ABXY buttons
- View & Menus buttons
Once you’ve made all of your selections and taken a look at the 3D view to make sure everything is how you want it, proceed on to select whether you want a custom engraving.
Finally, you’ll be taken to your shopping cart, where you can lay down your cash and place your order. Note that Microsoft is being up front in pointing out that customized product cannot be returned, so you customize it, you bought it.
Also, note that your new controller won’t actually ship until September, 2016. And so, it’s a pre-order as well of sorts, meaning you’ll have to wait a little bit to get your hands on it.Further reading: E3 2016, Microsoft, Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, Xbox One S
