To Microsoft, the pursuit for players to use its platforms and enjoy video games is the pinnacle of its ambitions. Even more, the Xbox company wants to offer welcoming arms to users that find regular tasks to even be a struggle. Already, the Xbox Adaptive controller proves to be a smart resolution for that. But, Microsoft is eager to further evolve the already revolutionary peripheral entering deeper into the Xbox Series X|S lifecycle.
As for traditional gamepads, we already have the standard Carbon Black, Robot White, and latest Pulse Red controllers. However, Microsoft is surely not finished with creating another line of controllers as we already witnessed with the Xbox One generation. In that, the company unveils the Daystrike Camo & Electric Volt controllers.
Inspired by the energy and vibrance often found in athletic apparel and sneaker design, the Xbox Wireless Controller – Electric Volt is the newest color in the current generation of Xbox controllers. Electric Volt builds on the same, striking color theme of Shock Blue and Pulse Red but takes it up a notch with a high-energy, yellow resin not yet seen on Xbox hardware.Navin Kumar, Xbox Director of Product Management
In the Xbox Wire blog post, Kumar continues, “The Xbox Wireless Controller – Daystrike Camo Special Edition is the third installment in our Camo series, following the Night Ops Camo and Arctic Camo Special Edition controllers, and first in the latest generation of Xbox controllers. Your favorite Xbox camo takes on a unique, lifestyle twist in this fresh design. With a palette of deep reds, paired with grey and black, Daystrike Camo brings a streetwear vibe to your game.”
Unlike previous controller design reveals, both Daystrike Camo & Electric Volt both will be kicking off the new ‘Icon Collection’ of Xbox clothing on the Xbox Gear Shop. So shirts, hoodies, and even pants will be bearing a resemblance one way or another to the new designs on the way.
In other initiative planned for Xbox Series X|S, it is reported that Microsoft is beginning to roll in Dolby Vision support for a selection of games in the latest Xbox Insider Alpha Ring. You can read the full report by heading here.
