Microsoft recently announced two brand new color options for the basic wireless Xbox One controller, and one of the new colors looks like it would be the perfect fit for a World of Tanks enthusiast.
The first color scheme covers the entire top of the controller in a soft red and—as you can see in the below image—that red color applies to everything including the controller faceplate, the analog sticks, and even the A, X, B, and Y face buttons. Essentially, a small indicator located at the center of the circle the buttons make shows each button’s usual colors in case you need reminding while playing a game.
Meanwhile, the second color scheme coats the controller, buttons, and sticks in an olive green finish, though it also sports a bit of orange on the back of the sticks as an accent color. The olive/orange design is most likely meant as a tribute to Microsoft’s Halo series (Halo protagonist Master Chief sports olive green armor and an orange helmet visor), but olive green also tends to be a pretty widely used military color, so the controller would feel equally appropriate while playing World of Tanks.
Both controller colors cost $64.99 and you can purchase the red controller now via the Microsoft Store. The green/orange controller is currently available for pre-order and will be released on January 24th.
Meanwhile, over in Sony’s neck of the woods, the PlayStation 4 Slim will soon be getting a glacier white variant.
