Microsoft is happy to announce two new limited edition colours for its Xbox One line of peripherals: Dusk Shadow and Copper Shadow.
The new colours join the current Xbox One wireless controller family that consists of the standard black and white and the more exotic military-inspired Covert Forces, Armed Forces, and Midnight Forces controllers.
The new colours feature a unique faded colour gradient finish: blue-to-black for Dusk Shadow and copper-to-black for Copper Shadow. The gradient colouring is the first of its kind for Xbox One Wireless Controllers. As with other controllers for Xbox One, these come equipped with all the standard features that Xbox One gamers have come to know and enjoy, including Impulse Triggers, responsive thumbsticks, an enhanced D-pad, and a 3.5mm stereo headset jack.
Both controllers will resale for $69.99 / R1000 and will be available towards the end of March 2016 in the USA and from April 2016 in other regions across the world.
In the USA, the Copper Shadow coloured controller will be exclusively available at Microsoft stores and GameStop, and the Dusk Shadow coloured controller will be exclusively available at Microsoft stores and, for a limited time, Best Buy. No exclusivity agreements exist for the colours in any other regions of the world.
