Breaking stereotypes, Microsoft has released a “Red Xbox One Controller” ditching the dark themed consoles and their respective controllers. The new controller is to be launched in a few days and will have a lot more to it than just a blood themed appearance.

On January 10, 2017, the wireless and fancy textured grip controller will be up for purchase. It is to be completely compatible with PCs and tablets and will also have Bluetooth connectivity options with greater range compared to the original Xbox One controller.

As of now, Xbox One controllers will be categorized as unique mainly because of their atypical color schemes. After white, blue and camouflage-colored versions, the red controller will definitely complete a multi-hued collection.

Apart from this crimson color, this controller only uses black where it needs to. That is, to accentuate its face buttons, which also feature red lettering. Else, the entire body consists of two shades of red, including the controller’s shoulder buttons, triggers, and backside.

So, players will now be able to customize colors of their controllers while adding to the player’s gaming experience. The unusual ‘Red’ version of Xbox One controllers will be available at GameStop and Microsoft store for about $65 each.

Another effort by Microsoft to stand out in the gaming world, their customizable controller will be the first to offer a few creative aspects, though this is not their first attempt at experimenting with the color: Microsoft used the same shade for an Xbox 360 controller, with last fall’s Crimson Red Gears of War 4 controller and the steeply priced Gears of War 4-themed Elite Controller. What’s new is the support for 3.5mm headphones without any adapter.

The best part: You don’t need to go through additional setup procedures to use the controller or even update your device.

So, if you are tired of looking at your boring old gloomy controllers and console, brighten them up a little and check out the whole range  Xbox One’s vibrant controllers here.
