Say hello to the (alleged) new Xbox One controller

The new Xbox One controller design was "leaked" through a product listing on the official Xbox One support site, and now images of the controller have been shared via a now-pulled listing from Austrian retailer Libro.

The controller looks to be the same as the existing controllers in almost all ways, except for the addition of a 3.5mm headphone jack that may make the controller compatible with existing headphones, rather than the proprietary jack that exists now and forces the purchase of an adapter or official Microsoft products.

There still isn't official confirmation of the new controller, but at this point things are looking pretty solid. A more open design, allowing for more audio devices, is a great move, especially considering the open nature of the PlayStation 4 controller.
