Microsoft has recently launched two of its new Xbox controllers, named Electric Volt and Daystrike Camo Special Edition and as per color and design, those look pretty unique as well. As per the compatibility, those new Xbox controllers are well compatible with the new Xbox Series S/X consoles, Xbox One, Android smartphones, tablets, and Windows 10 PCs as well. Now, let’s talk about the consoles one by one:
Xbox Electric Volt possesses a similar type of design compared to the Shock Blue and Pulse Red controllers. The color is seriously unique in this case and you can’t find it on any other Xbox hardware, it has a yellow resin color (top of the body). On the bottom part, we can find the white color finish and it is also similar to what we’ve seen on Shock Blue and Pulse Red controllers. Both the joysticks have the same color that we can see here.
As per the pricing and availability, the Electric Volt console will be available in most Xbox markets globally (also some of the selected retailer markets and on the Microsoft Store) from April 27 at a price tag of $64.99.
On the other hand, the Xbox Daystrike Camo Special Edition controller is the third addition to the Camo series. The First and second of this series were announced back in 2019 and 2020 respectively (Night Ops Camo in 2019 and Arctic Camo in 2020).
As per its design and color combination, it is blessed with multi-color shadings of red and a shade of gray and black. The top side of the body has camouflage-like textures whereas, on the bottom side, it has a black-colored finish. Another good thing about this controller is that it is for the first time a Camo edition Xbox controller arrives with a textured grip for the triggers giving it a premium feel.
As per the pricing and availability, the Daystrike Camo Special Edition controller will be available in most Xbox markets globally from May 4 at a price tag of $69.99.
Other than these gaming controllers, Microsoft has also announced a good collection of t-shirts, hoodies, shorts, and pants whose designs are inspired by the newly launched controllers and those products will be available from April 21.
