This purple Xbox One controller sure is sick


Not that I need more of ’em

When it comes to console controllers, right now, I’m good. They all (more or less) work as intended. I’ve got enough of them to go around for local co-op get-togethers. I shouldn’t be out here paying attention to new color variants. I’m not in the market. And yet… This purple Xbox One controller kinda rules!

New pick-up. Pre-order the Fortnite Special Edition Controller and get ready for the @FortniteGame World Cup Finals, July 26-28.

Originally, the controller was tied to a special edition Fortnite Xbox One S bundle, but Microsoft plans to set the device free. Starting September 17, you’ll be able to buy the gamepad for $65 on its own.

Along with the usual features like a headphone jack and Bluetooth support, this purple pad also comes with the Legendary Dark Vertex outfit and 500 V-Bucks. It’s compatible with Xbox One and PC.

Microsoft is not-so-low-key killing it with gamepad colorways this console generation.
