Xbox Reveals Next-Gen Accessories Available to Pre-Order Today
A blue controller, the Carbon Black Controller added to PC Bundles, and a rechargeable battery.
Ahead of the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles becoming available for pre-order, Xbox has revealed its next-generation accessories that are going to be available from November 10 to launch alongside the consoles.
The official blog post details that we’ve already seen the Carbon Black controller which will launch with the Xbox Series X, and the Robot White that launches with the Xbox Series S, but there are three different accessories becoming available in November. One option is a Shock Blue controller that is…well it’s blue. The back center panel is white and the buttons and triggers black and it’s optimized for next-gen gameplay.
With Xbox Play Anywhere and Game Pass Ultimate allowing users to also play games on PC, the PC controller bundles will also include the new Carbon Black Xbox Wireless Controller. You’ll be able to choose from a wireless one with an adapter for Windows 10 PCs or a wireless one that is still capable of connecting via Bluetooth, but comes with a USB-C cable.
The controllers are said to include a “more-inclusive, ergonomic design” with a “textured grip on the bumpers, triggers, and back case”. They also include a share button to allow you to quickly snap or record those moments you want to share. The controllers are also capable of connecting to Xbox Series X, Series S, One, Windows 10, and mobile devices.
There’s also going to be a brand-new Xbox Rechargeable Battery which comes with a USB-C cable, allowing you to plug in the battery and charge the battery in under 4 hours before or while you play.
The controllers will cost you $59.99 USD while the Xbox Rechargeable Battery will cost $24.99 USD. While these are going to be available on November 10, you can pre-order them starting from September 22 at 8am in your local time zone. Xbox Series X and Series S pre-orders go live today as well with the UK already running meticulously low on stock…everywhere.
