Microsoft Unveils Xbox Wireless Controller – Astral Purple Edition: A Regal Addition to Your Gaming Setup

Microsoft has introduced the Xbox Wireless Controller – Astral Purple edition, the latest addition to their line-up of controllers. This vibrant new color joins the matte single-color collection and offers gamers a distinct regal look to enhance their gaming experience.

The Astral Purple controller features a dark purple color scheme that extends to the thumbsticks and buttons. The hybrid D-Pad, bumpers, and triggers boast a sleek black matte finish, while the clean white back case complements the overall design, making the front of the controller more visually striking.

Despite its unique color, the Astral Purple edition shares the same features and capabilities as a standard Xbox controller. Players can enjoy textured grips on the bumpers, triggers, and back case for added comfort during long gaming sessions. The controller also includes a 3.5mm audio jack, remappable buttons, and removable batteries. With Bluetooth and Xbox wireless support, it is compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PCs, and mobile devices.

Pre-orders for the Xbox Wireless Controller – Astral Purple edition are now available through the Microsoft Store and select third-party sellers. The controller is expected to ship on September 19. Priced at $64.99, it is slightly more expensive than the standard white or black controllers.

In addition to the Astral Purple edition, Microsoft recently unveiled the Stormcloud Vapor Special Edition Xbox controller, featuring a mesmerizing swirling energy pattern design. Furthermore, the Xbox Series X will soon offer customizable options, with official wraps that securely fit around the console without the need for adhesives. These wraps will come in various designs, matching previously released Xbox controllers.
