A brand new Xbox controller appears to have leaked online, bringing some shimmer to Microsoft’s gamepad assortment.
Scorching on the heels of the latest Mineral Camo controller leak, one other Xbox Collection X|S gamepad has prematurely appeared. As noticed by Twitter person @EspiaDeOfertas, Amazon briefly listed the brand new Xbox Wi-fi Controller labelled “Lunar Shift”.
The itemizing seems to have been far away from Amazon, though the pictures shared on Twitter present each the back and front of the controller’s packaging. They’re pretty convincing photos that match the design of the usual Xbox controller field.
The Lunar Shift controller is fairly area age. Its entrance face plate seems pearlescent and “adjustments colouration with gentle and movement”, based on the again of its field. What that means is that the gamepad will shimmer within the gentle. Its grips look marbled, too, giving them a swirling impact, whereas all its buttons, thumbsticks, and triggers are plain white.
Moreover these peculiarities, the Lunar Shift is a typical new-gen Xbox controller. It options textured grips, Bluetooth connectivity, and a share button on the entrance.
Microsoft goes heavy on particular controller designs. Earlier this yr, it revealed a white model of the Xbox Elite Controller Collection 2, which can launch with each a recent paint job and a lower cost tag.
Final yr, Microsoft bought wacky with a vibrant yellow, translucent design for Forza Horizon 5. Paired with the Xbox Design Lab – Microsoft’s customized controller maker – Xbox gamers are spoilt for selection.
PlayStation gamers don’t take pleasure in the identical colouration choices. Sony solely launched blue, pink, and purple controllers for the PS5 in the prime of the yr. The DualSense Wi-fi Controller would possibly pack extra options, but it indeed loses factors on the model.
Don’t go buying one other Xbox controller at full value proper now, although. Loads of reductions will likely reside within the coming weeks as a part of the Xbox Collection X Black Friday offers. In truth, some Xbox controller colours have already dropped to their lowest value on Amazon.
