Microsoft launches trio of new Xbox One controller designs in the UK

Microsoft first unveiled its latest trio of new Xbox One controller designs in early August, and now those designs are headed to the UK. All three new controllers, including Volcano Shadow, Patrol Tech, and Green/Grey are now up for grabs starting at £59.99. (opens in new tab)

In terms of looks, all three are pretty slick. Volcano Shadow (opens in new tab), for example, builds on the aesthetic Microsoft has cemented with its other "Shadow" controllers by fading from black at the top and sides to a "fiery red metallic finish" at the bottom. The Grey/Green controller (opens in new tab), on the other hand, simplifies things, with grey occupying most of the controller and green accents on the base of the thumb sticks.

Lastly, the Patrol Tech Special Edition (opens in new tab) is Microsoft's second controller in the Tech series. It's got what Microsoft calls a military-inspired design with blue coloring and silver accents. The controller also features laser-etched texturing, an insignia, and rubberized grips.

If you're on the lookout for a new controller, you can pick one of these up at the UK Microsoft Store now. They're all available in the U.S. as well, if you happen to find yourself on the opposite side of the pond.
