Microsoft debuts 3 new stylish Xbox One controller designs

Between the Xbox Design Lab and Microsoft's own creations, there's no shortage of Xbox One controller designs out there. Now Microsoft is adding to that portfolio once again with a trio of stylish new controllers set to go on sale soon.

The first two designs to arrive are the Volcano Shadow Special Edition and the Green/Grey combo. Volcano Shadow features sort of a burnt red-orange aesthetic, fading from a black at the top and sides to a "fiery red metallic finish" towards the bottom. The Green/Grey controller, on the other hand, is a much simpler affair, with grey dominating the majority of the controller and green accents appearing at the base of the thumbsticks. Both controllers will start shipping on August 3 for $69.99.

The third new design Microsoft has debuted is the Patrol Tech Special Edition. This is the second entry in Microsoft's Tech series, featuring a similar military-inspired aesthetic as its predecessor. This one features a navy blue coloring with silver accents, along with laser-etched texturing, an insignia, and rubberized grips. The Patrol Tech Special Edition will arrive on September 5 for $69.99. It can also be bundled with a cable for Windows for the same price.

All three of the new controllers are up for preorder now at Microsoft, and they'll also be available from other retailers upon launch.
