Remember the days when it used to be Nintendo who would churn out special edition controllers like there was no tomorrow? Don’t worry, we’re sure they will be at it again with special-edition Joy-Con controllers before too long. In the meantime you can empty your bank account by picking up the first in the new Xbox Wireless Controller Tech Series.
The first release in the new range is the Recon Tech Special Edition which will be available to buy for $69.99 USD from April 25. According to Microsoft the Xbox team took their inspiration from military tech and performance patterns, with concepts based on combat armor and sci-fi gear.
The result features a premium finish with a laser etched texture and gold accents on the front of the controller. The back of the features a textured diamond rubberized grip for added comfort and better grip when things get sweaty.
This controller has all the other usual features included in the revised edition of the controller that launched with the Xbox One S last year ,including improved wireless range and Bluetooth. The controller is good to go out of the box with the Xbox One, Windows 10 devices and Samsung Gear VR.
