20th Anniversary Xbox Controller And Headset Releasing In November

Retail­er Best Buy leaked a new 20th anniver­sary Xbox con­troller, lead­ing Microsoft to make an offi­cial announce­ment con­firm­ing its exis­tence. Short­ly after Best Buy Cana­da post­ed its list­ing for pre­vi­ous­ly unan­nounced Xbox con­troller themed around Xbox’s 20th anniver­sary, Microsoft offi­cial­ly revealed the con­troller, as well as a new head­set, and oth­er var­i­ous in cel­e­bra­tion of its 20 year mark. The con­troller and head­set are avail­able to pre­order now for $70 at the Microsoft Store.

Microsoft described the con­troller as “sleek and sen­ti­men­tal” with a new take on the old col­or scheme of the orig­i­nal Xbox kit.

The body of the con­troller fea­tures a translu­cent black fin­ish with sil­ver inter­nals so you can see every detail. The nos­tal­gic, green Xbox but­ton brings us back to the first green Xbox logo. The icon­ic col­or can also be found on the back grips and around the hybrid D‑pad,” Microsoft said.

The con­troller launch­es in the US on Novem­ber 15th, the exact date the Xbox turns 20 years old. As an added bonus, play­ers get an exclu­sive 20th anniver­sary dynam­ic back­ground when they con­nect it to an Xbox Series X|S con­sole. Play­ers can also bring the con­troller to a friend’s house, con­nect it to their con­sole, and give them the back­ground as well. “Once you choose anoth­er back­ground, how­ev­er, this one will dis­ap­pear, and you will need to re-con­nect the 20th Anniver­sary con­troller to unlock it again,” Microsoft said.

A new 20th anniver­sary stereo head­set was also announced, and just like the con­troller it will be released on Novem­ber 15th. It will also cost $70.

The head­set sim­i­lar­ly fea­tures a translu­cent black body with sil­ver inter­nals so you can see what brings this head­set to life. Green accents on the boom mic, inside and out­side of the earcups. The left disc is marked with our 20th Anniver­sary logo in our icon­ic green and the right dial has our Xbox logo imprint­ed,” Microsoft said.

The Xbox 20th Anniver­sary Black & Green Sphere tee and hat will be avail­able at Xbox Gear Shop start­ing today,” Microsoft said. “The Xbox Gear Shop ships inter­na­tion­al­ly to most coun­tries from the Unit­ed States, so make sure to get yours before they are gone!”
