Xbox posted a YouTube video revealing that players can have official custom controllers made for themselves. They can mix-and-match colors and have it engraved with whatever text they like under the directional pad. Players can start from scratch, or they can use an existing template for their color schemes.
The entire design process is divided into seven steps:
- Controller Body Color
- Bumper & Trigger Colors
- Control Sticks Colors
- Button Colors
- View & Menu Button Colors
- Back Color
Each section has a maximum of 12 color choices and the button options have 4-5 choices for color options. Any controller orders placed before the end of August will be shipped starting early September. The starting price for these custom controllers is $80.00. If you want to add a little personal flare to your Xbox, you can create your controller at the Xbox Design Lab.
