Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Wireless Controller – Astral Purple is available for pre-order today in select Xbox markets worldwide for $64.99 USD ERP. Yet another color variant of the popular gaming controller, this version maintains all of the original’s features, just like the rest, but comes with a new dark purple theme that’s carried over to both the thumbsticks and buttons, coupled with a black matte finish on the hybrid D-Pad, bumpers, and triggers. The backplate, however, is entirely white—a contrast that Xbox says makes the controller even more striking.
Each Xbox Wireless Controller in Astral Purple comes with all the features you’ve come to love in our current generation of controllers. The D-Pad’s hybrid design offers an accurate yet familiar glide, perfect for navigating complex gaming worlds with precision. The textured grips on the bumpers, triggers, and back case allow for a better grip and the 3.5mm jack enables you to chat with friends using a compatible headset. By using Bluetooth and Xbox Wireless, the Astral Purple controller can connect to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, PC, mobile phones, and tablets. Play longer with up to 40 hours of battery life and save your favorite moments like hitting a new personal speed running record with the dedicated Share button.
