Announced today via Xbox Wire along with a fancy headset, controller charger, and some celebratory clothing, the 20th Anniversary Special Edition controller is a fresh spin on the translucent green of the original Xbox Debug kit. Not sure if a completely different color counts as a fresh spin, but its not a bad-looking controller.

Harking back to the days when everything Xbox was black and green, the 20th Anniversary Special Edition controller has a smokey translucent front, giving us a glimpse of whats going on inside its plastic housing, right down to those sexy, sexy rumble motors. At the top of the controller is a home button sporting a bright green X. Beneath the buttons on the right is a 20th-anniversary logo. Also note that the green around the directional pad is also a special feature of the controller and not just normal circuit board color. Also, the grips are green.

Again, its no longer unattractive. Its simply extraordinary that Microsoft would attempt to evoke reminiscences of a translucent inexperienced debug device with a controller that isn’t translucent inexperienced. I might have killed for a controller that gave the impression of this:

The Twentieth Anniversary Special Edition controller is going on sale on November 15 for $70. As an additional added bonus, connecting the controller to any Xbox Series X or S console unlocks a distinct Twentieth-anniversary dynamic background. You may, for those who had been so vulnerable, pick out this sort of up for the vacations after which trip for your Xbox Series-owning buddies properties and provides the reward of a sparkling inexperienced background.

Quick, someone add a 4 to the front.

Also to be had on November 15 is the $70 Twentieth Anniversary Xbox Stereo Headset. It stocks the similar translucent black-and-green motif because the controller. Together the 2 peripherals do a doubly unhealthy activity of evoking the transparent inexperienced debug console.

In remaining, black isn’t a contemporary spin on inexperienced. Thank you.
