Shiny new Xbox Controller adds a subtle update

Microsoft’s most recent extraordinary release regulator for the Xbox Series X/S is classified “Water Shift” and it comes out August 31. As well as appearing as though a moonbeam shot through the sea surf, it has another rubber treated board to help you keep hold of it in any event when your hands begin to perspire. Finally, not any more slipped trimming tool takedowns in Gears of War.

“Water shift is the main Special Edition Xbox Series X|S regulator to highlight rubber treated side grasps with a one of a kind double shading whirl on each unit,” peruses the Microsoft blog entry reporting it. “Finished hold on the triggers, guards and back case ensures you stay associated with the game regardless of how extraordinary things get.”


I ordinarily ridicule advertising duplicates like this, however there I was simply last night white-knuckling my regulator in the last supervisor battle for Death’s Door.

This is the third Series X/S we’ve gotten since the control center delivered. Before Aqua Shift was Electric Volt, Daystrike Camo, Night Ops Camo, and Sport Blue. What’s more, obviously Microsoft as of late brought back the Xbox Design Lab, allowing you to concoct a wide range of other custom shading blends.

None of those have the Aqua Shift’s extra elastic board on each side hold however. In such manner it’s calculating toward something like the Elite Series 2 without the additional sticker price. The truth will surface eventually how well the elastic really holds up. Individuals have detailed issues with the elastic on some Elite Series regulators previously, however that appears to have been generally in situations where the elastic was discrete from the basic plastic board.

All the more critically, the darn thing appears as though a regulator made out of liquefied down glittery Hot Wheels and I love it. Each fringe needs a radiance choice so we should go Playstation and Nintendo, show us what you got.

Assuming you’ve at any point hungered for the Northern Lights in regulator structure, your unusual and delightful second has shown up.

Recently, Microsoft uncovered a pristine authority Xbox Series X|S remote gamepad variation, just named Aqua Shift. It’s an uncommon release adornment that is presently accessible to pre-request ($69.99 MSRP) and will hit stores not long from now on August 31.

Jessica Tsujikawa, Sr. Item Marketing Manager over at Xbox, portrays the regulator’s strangely appealing shade as “a dreamlike, shading moving blue gleam”. “Kaleidoscopic” is additionally utilized, and deciding by the short video cut posted close by the declaration, the watery slope kind of moves as you move the fringe.

Generally intriguing, however, are the first-of-their-sort (essentially for an exceptional version X|S regulator) rubber treated handle holds. The twirled double tones are evidently totally remarkable to every single regulator. Not by and large a numbered collectible, but rather sort of cool, no doubt.

Other than that, the Aqua Shift gamepad is basically equivalent to your other authority X|S input gadgets. Same offer catch, same finished triggers, same simplicity of association with for all intents and purposes each Bluetooth gadget in your home. Which, let’s face it, is certainly not something awful. Microsoft’s most recent regulator is damn close to great, as I would see it.

Ideally, I can catch an Aqua Shift survey unit and take some IRL photographs, primarily to perceive how the wild shadings look outside in sublime daylight, yet additionally to check whether I can invoke the Aurora Borealis.
