New Xbox One S Controller: Customized and in our hands

How does it compare?

The Xbox One S will ship with a slightly redesigned Xbox One controller. I designed my own version of the controller using the Xbox Design Lab, and it just showed up at my home.

Here's a closer look at what the new controller looks like and how it compares to the images you see in the Design Lab.

Stay tuned for our in-depth hands-on with the controller, which features a new textured grip and Bluetooth support, later today. Update: You can read our impressions right here.

Below you'll find a comparison of the shot created by the Design Lab and what showed up at my house today. I was going for a Game Boy look and added "Game Dad" text to the bottom along with a gallery. The controller normally would have cost $89.98

The controllers go on sale for $59.99 Aug. 2, but it sounds like the customized ones won't start hitting until September.
