Microsoft debuts new Xbox controller designs and stereo headset

Microsoft has outed a slate of new Xbox accessories due out this fall, including new controller designs and colors, along with a new stereo headset.

The new controller designs include a new blue color along with what's been labeled as a "Dawn Shadow Special Edition" controller. The more interesting of the two is the Dawn Shadow design, which features a magenta color that gradually fades into black. Both controllers are based on the new controller design that shipped with the Xbox One S, featuring Bluetooth and textured grips. Microsoft says that it is also updated the standard black Xbox Wireless Controller to sport these new features as well.
