A real treasure
Controllers: Sometimes they’re ugly. But, sometimes they’re the opposite of ugly. Sometimes they’re spectacular nods to video games, with such brilliant designs that they end up as a special and impressive piece of memorabilia.
In case you couldn’t tell, we’re quite enamored with this Sea of Thieves special edition Xbox One controller. The effervescent green against the twilight purple is a handsome contrast. The one gold trigger calls attention to itself the same way a pirate might with a grin that flashes his gold tooth. Top notch stuff here.
The controller comes at a bit of a premium though. It will retail for $75 and releases on February 6 — a month and a half before Sea of Thieves launches. It comes with an exclusive in-game Ferryman clothing set, and 14-day trials for both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. This is the part where I tell you that even though it’s kind of expensive, you shouldn’t steal it even if that’s what a real pirate would do.
