The next Xbox controller is Pulse Red and it's shipping in February


Black, white, blue, and now red

I feel sorry for anyone who's out there amassing a multi-colored array of Xbox controllers – they just don't stop coming. The gamepad's latest colorway, Pulse Red, is a vibrant red-and-white combo.

The Pulse Red controller will be available on February 9, 2021, for $64.99 in "most Xbox markets" and tomorrow, January 12, in China. It's compatible with your Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, or mobile device. In certain regions, Microsoft is also throwing in a 14-day Xbox Game Pass Ultimate trial.

This seems like the next logical step after last year's Shock Blue Xbox controller.

I haven't gotten my hands on one of these newer models yet (I'm sticking with my original Elite controller for as long as it lasts), but I'm a fan of this specific aesthetic, and I'm curious about the Dynamic Latency Input system in general. I'll have plenty of choices the next time I'm in the market.
