Xbox just announced a new controller: The special edition Recon Tech wireless controller, to be released May 8.
With a stylised utilitarian look Xbox says was inspired by “military technology”, “combat armour and sci-fi mechanical gear”, the controller has etched textures on the front and back, apparently for grip. Like other Xbox wireless controllers, it’s Bluetooth compatible. Mostly, it’s pretty.
The controller will be available in Australia May 8 for a steep $99.95, still half the cost of an Elite wireless controller.
