Microsoft has announced a matching Xbox One controller and stereo headset coming soon to Xbox One.

The pair, which offers, "a modern camouflage pattern and military look," is available for pre-order now. You can head here for the controller and here for the headset. The former is $64.99 and the latter is $89.99 and they will be available later this year in October.

Soon it will be time to put together a feature similar to this one detailing special edition Xbox 360 controllers, for Xbox One controllers. We've already seen a special edition Titanfall controller.

Prefer the camo style myself, but the prices are hideous!

I usually hate army camo on anything, but that looks nice. Made me realise how pretty the X1 controller is. $10 mil well spent MS.

Although I aint dropping big bucks like that on the bloody thing.

Not a fan.

 

Much prefer the chrome series of 360 controllers / original twist silver. Hopefully we get X1 versions of those.

What's taking MS so long to release a wireless headset.

Nothing against this product in particular, but I do really dislike this practice to present another colored piece of plastic as something special.

Considering people idiots spend $100+ for one of EA's awful games, I think this is priced reasonably for them.

I don't see why people think $64.99 for a controller is overpriced. Last gen (which has been... 8 years now) had new, wireless controllers at $54.99 for pretty much the entire time.

 

Yes, they are expensive. But they've always been expensive, it's not news.

I've never paid anything near that for a controller on any platform before.

 

The price is more what you'd expect to pay for a fight stick  :/

Step 1: Don't buy a Thrustmaster

Step 2: Buy a SE/TE

Step 3: Don't live in a Nordic country with insanely inflated costs :p

meh, you wrote fight stick anyway, I have no need for that plastic POS. I was thinking fLight stick. in wich case TM is king. I sold my SNES way back in the days to buy a F16 FLCS+TQS+Pedal combo. 

 

fight sticks makes no sense to me. people argue to get better Dpads and then they buy an oversize ATARI joystick... makes no sense.
