Personalize your gaming experience with this new color option.

When the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launched in November 2020, there were three colors of the new Xbox Wireless Controller to choose from: Carbon Black, Robot White, and Shock Blue.

The Carbon Black controller is included with the Xbox Series X console, while the Robot White option comes with the Xbox Series S. All three colors (black, white, and blue) are also available to purchase separately.

In February, a fourth color option will be released for families and gamers to choose from: Pulse Red.

This new controller has a bright red faceplate and white backplate, which matches the same two-tone layout of the Shock Blue controller.

The Pulse Red controller comes with all of the same features as the other Xbox Wireless Controllers. That is, it can be used with Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs, and Android devices. It includes a headset jack for connecting headphones and headsets, and it can be powered via two AA batteries or an Xbox Rechargeable Battery pack (which is sold separately).

Xbox will release the Pulse Red controller “in most Xbox markets” on February 9. It will be available in China beginning January 12. The Pulse Red controller costs $64.99.
