Xbox One gets a new controller, exclusively sold by GameStop

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

After revealing a new console bundle today, Microsoft also announced a new "lunar white" standard controller for Xbox One, becoming available at the end of the month.

The controller is $64.99 and will be available through GameStop only, Microsoft said.

The controller is the updated configuration of the base model that Microsoft announced back in June. That means it has the 3.5mm headset jack that accommodates other gaming headphones.

The right and left bumper buttons have been tuned for responsiveness, and the controller can receive firmware updates wirelessly instead of needing a USB cable plugged into the Xbox One. Microsoft also touted an "improved grip texture for more control and comfort."
