Available worldwide since November 10, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S already offer two different controller colors. The “Carbon Black” from the Series X side with a black / grayish. As well as the “Robot White” for the small Series S offering a classy frosted white.
Announced the day after the launch of pre-orders, the third color of the new generation Xbox controllers is “Shock Blue”, a pretty blue controller unveiled during the Tokyo Game Show, which nevertheless makes a nice reference to Sonic. At the same time causing a lot of movement around a potential merger between Microsoft and Sega.
Microsoft today announces a fourth color for these new controllers with the “Pulse Red”, a sublime sparkling red controller that will land at the beginning of February.

It is therefore a bright red controller that is preparing to arrive on February 9 at a price of € 59.99. For this new Pulse Red pad, Microsoft is tracing the design of the Shock Blue with a red shell, a white rear face and black buttons, triggers and directional crosses.
Xbox Series controller at the best price
Base price: 59 €
A design already criticized by some players who would have liked to have a red and black or red and white controller rather than all three colors together. From a totally personal point of view, I find the pad sublime and I am curious to see it in real life, hoping that the red is as bright as in the photos.
This new Xbox Series X / S Pulse Red controller (like the three other controllers already on sale) is compatible with Series X, Series S, but also Xbox One (Fat, X, S, All Digital), but also on PC (under Windows 10) and on Android devices with Bluetooth to be able to enjoy XCloud in peace.
The controller is able to register multiple devices to allow you to switch from your Xbox to your PC, then to your smartphone with ease. Microsoft also specifies that a 14-day trial of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is offered with the purchase of this new controller. See you on February 9 to get your hands on this little beauty!
