Red Xbox One controller set to hit stores on January 10

If crimson is your color of choice, Microsoft has a new Xbox One Wireless Controller on the way that should be rather appealing. Sporting a couple of different bloody shades on its front and rear, the new red Xbox Wireless Controller is available for pre-order now (opens in new tab) with a release date set for January 10.

Following up on the release of other colors with thrilling names like Dawn Shadow and blue, the red controller is available for $64.99 and features a pretty distinct color scheme. Of course, you could get a fairly close approximation of this controller's design using the Xbox Design Lab{.nofollow}. However, the new red model is not only cheaper (by around $15), but it also features a shade of red on the rear and buttons that simply isn't available in the lab.

If you're interested, you can pre-order the red controller now from both Microsoft and GameStop. Curiously, GameStop is claiming the controller is exclusive to its store despite its appearance at the Microsoft Store.

  • So pretty! 
  • Wow .... That is ugly 😐
  • Subjective, I actually like it.
  • Not bad, but I miss the colours on the buttons.
  • Wow, I almost brought a controller last week. Now I am happy that I can wait just a few weeks to get one of these.
  • Very nice!
  • This is nice, but it's much prefer the Gears of War version... It sells for As much as £45 when discounted!!!!
  • With Design Lab, MS said new markets would become available in early 2017... Hoping for the UK to get the ability to customise soon, my controller is getting a bit worn and I'd love one of my own colour scheme.
  • For some reason, it looks to me like it should be branded with Deadpool.
  • Satan's Xbox controller.
  • Very Nice, would go well with my, Elite Matt Black, Battlefield 1 Camo Green and Lunar White controllers.
  • That looks GOOD.
