Xbox Design Lab controllers get a pearlescent visible improve

Microsoft has introduced that it’s deployed a putting new visible customization choice to its Xbox Design Lab for controllers. Whereas it may by no means stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Destructoid’s personal tackle what a correct Xbox controller must seem like, the brand new Cosmic Shift shell possibility is a enjoyment of its personal proper. Principally, Cosmic Shift is simply the most recent in a protracted line of “Shift” visible customization choices obtainable by way of the Design Lab. Whereas most common Xbox controllers are flat in colour, Shift colorways are much more attention-grabbing with their pearlescent surfaces.

The Shift lineup was initially launched again in 2021 with the Aqua Shift controller, which was quickly adopted by the Lunar and Stellar Shift choices. Whereas these remained comparatively unique and reasonably uncommon within the years since, Shift colors have now finally been made available as optionally available customization options within the Xbox Design Lab. They’re not low-cost, both, as selecting the Shift physique in your controller will add an additional $9.99 to your remaining worth.

The Xbox controller’s newest visible upgrades

Clearly, the large piece of reports right here is you could now use Shift colorway choices to customise your very personal Xbox controllers. Collectors could also be significantly thrilled by the truth that there’s an all-new Shift possibility obtainable as nicely, and it’s wholly unique to the Design Lab: Cosmic Shift. Cosmic Shift is a white-ish shell with a pink shimmer, and this colour mixture helps it stand out even when in comparison with the opposite, older variations of Shift.

There are some comparatively minor caveats to remember right here. Firstly, it will appear that solely the “Physique” portion of the controller presently helps the Shift colorways, that means that the opposite components of your customized controller will stay decidedly non-pearlescent. Secondly, these choices don’t look like obtainable on the Elite Xbox controller, which is a little bit of a bummer in its personal proper.
