In honor of Xbox’s 20th anniversary, Microsoft has unveiled a new Xbox wireless controller and headset this year.
The Xbox controller follows the same layout as the new standard Xbox wireless controller introduced with the Xbox Series X / S and features a translucent black design with green handles, a green logo, and dark green details around the D-pad . The controller also features Xbox’s 20th anniversary badge.
The Xbox 20th Anniversary Stereo Headset announced today features the same design with translucent black ear cups, green logos and details, and a green microphone. It’s important to note that this headset is the standard stereo headset that Xbox sells, not the Xbox wireless headset.
“[The headset and the controller are] a new twist on the translucent green of the original Xbox Debug Kit, ”said the Xbox announcement. “The housing of the controller has a translucent black finish with silver inner parts so you can see every detail. The nostalgic green Xbox button brings us back to the first green Xbox logo. ”
Both the controller and the headset are available for pre-order now and will be released on November 15th. Each is priced at $ 69.99.
Everyone who connects the controller to their Xbox Series X / S console for the 20th anniversary will receive an exclusive dynamic background for the 20th anniversary. Xbox also revealed some new 20th anniversary merchandise, including a new Razer Universal Quick Charging Stand for Xbox controllers.
