The Deep Pink Xbox Wireless Controller features a darker, vibrant pink hue across its faceplate, joysticks, and buttons, with black accents and a white rear plate. It's a formula that has worked extremely well for other off-shoot Xbox Wireless Controller colorways like Blue, Red, and Volt, and it makes for an attractive controller in pink, as well. You can now order the Deep Pink controller directly from Microsoft at the link below, with other retailers like Best Buy to follow in the near future.
The Xbox Wireless Controller is easily among the best Xbox controllers you can buy, and one of the best controllers in general. If you're interested in a new gaming accessory and are looking for pink, the Deep Pink Xbox Wireless Controller is a fantastic option that works across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Android, and iOS devices.

Wow, I'm not even the target audience of this controller and it looks good. I wish they would stop doing the white backplate though
I agree, I'd like to see black back plates on some of these colorways. White seems to be the theme of this generation's controllers, so far.
I also agree, although instead of black I'd like to see contrasting colours instead. Like pink and cyan, purple and yellow, blue and orange, etc. I vaguely recall there being done Xbox one controllers that has these kind of contrasts but I could have imagined it.
