Update: It's official! Xbox has announced the 20th Anniversary Special Edition Controller, along with a unique Stereo Headset to celebrate the occasion. Razer has also created a Limited Edition Universal Quick Charging Stand to partner with the controller, available separately in the near future.
You can pre-order the controller from the Microsoft Store now for £59.99 / $69.99, with a release date of November 15.
Here's what Xbox has to say about this shiny new peripheral:
"Sleek and sentimental – all in one package. The 20th Anniversary Special Edition controller is a fresh spin on the translucent green of the original Xbox Debug kit. The body of the controller features a translucent black finish with silver internals so you can see every detail. The nostalgic, green Xbox button brings us back to the first green Xbox logo. The iconic color can also be found on the back grips and around the hybrid D-pad."
Not only that, but anyone who owns an Xbox Series X|S and picks up this new controller is also eligible for an exclusive dynamic background to celebrate the milestone, which you can see in the tweet below.
Original Story: The 20th anniversary Xbox controller that Microsoft has been teasing over the past 24 hours has seemingly dropped ahead of its official reveal, as Best Buy in the U.S. has listed the peripheral early.
Retailing at $79.99 with a launch date of November 15, the controller sports a very unique design compared to others. The biggest inclusion is the ability to see within the controller itself due to a translucent plastic front. Even the Xbox guide button sports a bright green to represent the brand.
"Inspired by the styles and innovations of the past, this 20th Anniversary Special Edition Xbox wireless controller brings you the best of the last 20 years. It features a transparent black design with vibrant green details that stay true to Xbox’s signature style while thoughtfully designed buttons and a hybrid D-pad enable precision, tactical gameplay."
