Xbox controllers are always getting special editions, fresh paint jobs, and sometimes completely new controllers, such as the Xbox Elite Series 2 Wireless Controller. Xbox has a collection of new controllers and accessories based around Easter for its Spring 2022 collection, according to an Xbox News article.
Microsoft announced the first, the new PowerA Enhanced Wired Controller for Xbox Series X|S, in collaboration with PowerA. They work in the same way as previous PowerA Wired Controllers, with a detachable cord for easy cleaning. These controllers are available in a variety of soft, fresh hues and are priced as follows, according to Microsoft:
- Lavender Swirl – mesmerizing, swirly, psychedelic goodness.
- Cotton Candy Blue – sugary sensation inspired by the sweetest of childhood treats.
- Pink Lemonade – icy cold and refreshing design to brighten up any gaming session.
- Purple Camo – pastel purple meets rough-and-tumble camo.
- Pastel Dream – soothing fades that turn even the most stressful session into a smooth symphony of gaming prowess.
The PowerA Enhanced Wired Controllers for Xbox Series X|S in their new pastel hues are available for pre-order today from Microsoft Store and other retailers in the US and CA for USD 37.99.
The Otter Box Easy Grip Controller Shells for Xbox Series X|S controllers are the next item on the list. This is accomplished by encasing the controller in a hard case that protects it from drops and scrapes. According to the Xbox News page, “This first-of-its-kind, very durable hardshell gives the protection you’ve come to love and count on from OtterBox while ensuring your controller feels and performs like a pro-level controller from Xbox.”
This item will be available for USD 39.99 on Microsoft Store and other stores starting today in the Lilac Dream hue. Last but not least, the 8BitDo Ultimate Wired Controller completes the list. It’s a smaller controller with all of the same features as its bigger siblings. The option to fully personalize your button mapping is at your fingertips with two additional programmable back buttons and the 8BitDo Ultimate Software software (available on Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10, Android, and iOS).
Pre-orders for the 8BitDo Ultimate Wired Controller in Pastel Pink are now available for USD 44.99 through Microsoft Store and other retailers in various regions around the world. The Xbox Spring 2022 controller and accessory set appear to be a great Easter gift. The controllers may even be said to be made of chocolate.
