If you're on the lookout for uniquely styled controllers for your Xbox One, then Microsoft's newly announced Tech Series should prove appealing. Kicking off with a controller with a military inspired design, the new series is set to feature some stylized offerings that should add a little extra flavor to the Xbox Wireless Controller lineup.
The first controller in the series is called the Recon Tech Special Edition. From Microsoft:
In developing this new controller series, the Xbox team was inspired by military technology and performance patterns, exploring concepts stemming from combat armor and sci-fi mechanical gear. Premium finishes like a laser etched texture on the front, gold accents and insignia are on the front of the controller. The back of the controller features textured diamond rubberized grip for added control and comfort.
Other than a unique design, the controllers pack the same increased range and bluetooth connectivity as the latest Xbox Wireless Controllers. If the series looks like its up your alley, the Recon Tech Special Edition will be available starting on April 25 for $70, but it's up for pre-order now. We can likely expect more military-inspired controllers to pop up in the series in the coming months.
Update: Xbox's Graeme Boyd has posted some live pictures of the controller on Twitter if you want to get a better look at it. Check them out below:
