Phantom White Xbox One controller now available for preorder

During its latest episode of Inside Xbox, Microsoft took the wraps off of its latest special edition Xbox Wireless Controller, sporting the fitting description of "Phantom White." If the reveal had you drooling, preorders are now available at the Microsoft Store for $70 (opens in new tab).

The Phantom White Xbox controller largely mimics the look of the equally sleek Phantom Black controller, but with a white coat of paint. The top still features a translucent shell that shows off the guts of the controller, offering a neat look at the mechanisms inside. That gradually fades down to an all-white exterior on the controller's grips.

Like all new Xbox Wireless Controllers, this one comes sporting Bluetooth, so you can use it with your Windows 10 PC as well as your Xbox One. There's also the standard textured grip around back, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom.

The Phantom White controller is set to start shipping on April 2, but you can get your preorder in now at Microsoft for $70 (opens in new tab).

  • The good thing when you live in Europe is that all their controllers are readily available for years. Phantom Black goes regularly for 54 Euro, I can still buy the Sea of Thieves controller. Gonna take the waiting approach for the Phantom White.
  • I wish they'd make an elite that looks cool like that.
