Microsoft has unveiled the all-new Sunkissed Vibes Xbox controller, drawing inspiration from OPI nail colours. Gamers seeking a new controller now have an array of colour options, with new ones added regularly.
With the introduction of the Xbox Series X/S controller, Microsoft essentially enhanced the Xbox One joypad, altering its shape slightly and adding a new Share button in the centre. Since the Series X/S consoles launched in 2020, Microsoft has released numerous new colours for the gaming device, with the Sunkissed Vibes being the latest Special Edition available for purchase.
Launching May 9th
Resulting from a partnership with nail brand OPI, the Sunkissed Vibes controller is priced at $69.99. You may have to find a retailer in your country to see the price it’s selling for. It’s available for pre-order now through the Microsoft Store, with a release date of May 9th.
The Sunkissed Vibes Xbox controller is exclusively available at Target in the US, and the OPI nail polish collection it is based on is available starting May 1st. As always, the device is compatible with Android mobile devices, PCs, iOS and obviously Xbox consoles.
This new controller is the latest in a series of colours introduced by Microsoft in recent years. Initially, there were limited colour options, but the selection has expanded significantly since then. Apart from standard colours, Special Edition controllers like the Sunkissed Vibes offer unique quirks or features. For instance, a line of Special Edition Xbox controllers features extra grip, with Aqua Shift, Lunar Shift, and Stellar Shift available at the time of writing.
In case fans aren’t captivated by the Sunkissed Vibes addition or other options, they can always create their own using the Xbox Design Lab. This platform enables fans to easily customise their controllers, selecting colours and other details.
Premium Xbox controllers are also worth considering. Microsoft offers a range of high-priced Elite controllers that provide even more customisation and cater to hardcore gamers. The popularity of these has prompted rival PlayStation to launch its DualSense Edge controller for the PlayStation 5 console, which received strong reviews earlier this year.
