New Green/Orange Xbox One Controller Launching on January 24th

on January 10, 2017 1:22 PM

Exactly a week ago, Microsoft announced a new Red Xbox One controller. The controller, which went on sale today for $64.99 USD is the 4th standard color controller. Now, Microsoft has announced the 5th new standard controller: a green (like an Army green) controller with orange accents.

Unlike the red controller, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on this one though, as it doesn’t release until January 24th. However, the January 24th release will be exclusive to the Microsoft Store and Walmart (also $64.99 USD). A week later, on the 31st, the controller will go on sale at “select retailers” worldwide.

Just like the new red controller, the green/orange one comes with a new D-pad, twice the wireless range, textured grips, responsive thumbsticks, Impulse Triggers, and custom button mapping. It is also compatible with any headset that has a 3.5mm stereo headset jack, as well as Bluetooth technology, which means it can be easily used for PC and tablets.
