Xbox Introduces A New Controller Color With Pulse Red

This morning, Microsoft revealed a new color for their line of official Xbox controllers as they now have Pulse Red as an option. While there are a number of different patterns and color schemes you can get depending on what you're looking for in a variant, this is joining their official line of solid color patterns. The last time they introduced one was with the Shock Blue color, which has done well for them so far on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. You can read more about the new color below as it will be on sale for the standard $65.

With a vivid, fiery-red topcase and crisp, white backcase, the new Pulse Red controller brings the same energy and equally striking color as the Shock Blue. Matte black triggers, bumpers, and hybrid D-pad reduce slip against sweaty fingers and thumbs for greater control, while a textured dot pattern on the triggers and bumpers to keep your grip locked in. Dynamic Latency Input delivers controller inputs more frequently to your Xbox Series X|S for a more responsive gaming experience and seemingly instantaneous action.

The controller's buttons, including the new Share button, can be custom mapped just the way you like using the Xbox Accessories app. Set the Share button to capture screenshots, start/stop recording, or even to record what just happened, then share your best, worst or funniest moments with friends and followers right from the console dashboard or your Android phone with the Xbox app for mobile.

You can wirelessly connect the new Pulse Red controller to your favorite gaming devices including Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with the built-in Xbox Wireless radio. You can also play wirelessly on Win10 PCs and Android devices with Bluetooth Low Energy for remote play from your console or cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on the go. The controller remembers multiple devices, so you can quickly and seamlessly switch between previously connected devices, while connecting with USB to your console or PC is also an option.
