The officially licensed redesign of the Xbox 360 controller will be released in four colours and will feature a modernised design with new buttons to make it comfortable to use on Xbox consoles and computers.
Do you miss the original white Xbox 360 controller? Well, you’re in luck, as Hyperkin, a manufacturer popular for its creations based on peripherals from the past, is releasing a revamp of the legendary controller under official license under the name The Xenon, the code word Microsoft used during the development of its seventh-generation console. You can see the revamped design below.
According to the announcement, the controller will be available in four colours: pink, red, white and black. As you can imagine, it will be fully compatible with any model of Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and, of course, PCs, although no details such as release date or price have been revealed at this time. On the other hand, as you can see in the attached image, both the button layout and size have been respected, although additional buttons have been added next to the Xbox button to share content and as a shortcut to access certain menus of modern systems more comfortably; it also has a 3.5mm jack port for headphones.
Although Hyperkin has announced that the controller will feature a vibration function, it has not been specified whether this will be general or whether it will be concentrated on the triggers as has been the norm for Microsoft controllers since Xbox One. It’s also important to note that The Xenon comes with a detachable USB-C cable.
