Xbox Celebrates Pride Month With New Design Lab Controller

Xbox has revealed its plans for Pride Month today, which include a brand-new Xbox Design Lab controller.

This controller design was actually produced in limited batches last year, but due to popular feedback, it's now been incorporated into Xbox Design Lab and will be available to purchase permanently as of Thursday, June 9th.

"We heard you, and we’re expanding availability by making this year’s Pride controller customizable through Xbox Design Lab, specifically underscoring the uniqueness of the LGBTQIA+ experience."

Aside from this, there are loads of Pride Month celebrations going on at Xbox all month, including the full version of Tell Me Why being given away for free, an exclusive Forza rainbow livery for the 2009 Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster being given to Forza Horizon and Motorsport players, a new Halo Infinite emblem and nameplate, and much more.

"In celebrating Pride this year, we invite LGBTQIA+ communities and allies to unite in their support for justice and equality, and to amplify voices that combat discrimination around the globe. Team Xbox shares our support for the LGBTQIA+ communities within gaming, while raising awareness of current issues impacting these communities."
