Xbox Design Lab lets gamers colorfully customize their controllers

TechCrunch TechCrunch 13/06/2016 Brian Heater

Want to stand out while staying inside, playing video games? Microsoft’s got you covered. Along with that shiny new “robot white” Xbox One S, the company unveiled Xbox Design Lab, a site that lets users customize their controller’s color. That includes pretty much every part of the controller, from the front and pack faces to the various buttons. In all, there are around eight million different or so possible color combinations, according to the company’s numbers.

The controls are colorful versions of the new Xbox One controller, also unveiled today, which feature Bluetooth connectivity with increased range, a more robots thumbstick and a textured grip for better feel.

The custom controllers are set to run $80 through the Design lab site (a notable premium over the default version’s $60), with laser engraved Gamertag customization adding on an addition $10.
