Xbox Design Lab comes to Microsoft Store app on Xbox One and PC

Microsoft's Xbox Design Lab is now available (opens in new tab) from the Microsoft Store app on your PC and Xbox One. The move means that you'll now be able to create custom controllers from the comfort of your couch, without having to head to the Xbox Design Lab website. (opens in new tab)

Microsoft says that it has "streamlined the design experience" for the Microsoft Store, requiring fewer clicks to get through the design and checkout process. To access the design lab, you can head to the Microsoft Store on your PC or console and search for "Xbox Design Lab." The option is also listed in the "Devices" tab of the PC app and as a tile at the bottom of the store page on Xbox One.

Once on the Xbox Design Lab page in the Microsoft Store, you can customize your controller just as you would on the web. This includes the body, back, D-pad, bumpers, buttons, and more. After you're done, you can add the controller to your cart and purchase it like you would anything else on the Microsoft Store.

The launch comes just ahead of Microsoft's Black Friday sale, which will cut $10 off the normal $70 price of Xbox Design Lab controllers from November 23-26.

  • "After you're done, you can add the controller to your cart and purchase it like you would anything else on the Microsoft Store"
    IF there is a Microsoft Store in your country that is!
  • And, even then, you won't find it if MS hasn't made Design Lab available in your region (as is the case in Australia).
  • Then change region, download and change region back.
  • Well considering that even steam was stuck up in USD until the recent announcement of providing support for Australian currency in the steam wallet, I'd say it's always the same with these sorts of companies, lack of regional support... its a complete buzzkill.
  • Where's the link to the store app
  • Yea the link goes to the website not the app.
  • On your start menu, it looks like a white shopping bag with a Microsoft logo on it.
  • Shame its still missing the 3D view like the browser version used to have... Was a nice feature. I wasted LOTS of time on the toilet building these, haha!
