‘Pulse Red’ Is Newest Xbox Controller Design – Launching in February 2021

While for some, the controller is only a means of interesting with and ultimately playing your favourite games, for others it is a fashion statement. When the new Xbox Wireless Controller released last year simultaneously with the Xbox Series X|S console, Microsoft offered three colour options ‘Carbon Black’, ‘Robot White’ and ‘Shock Blue’ – bundling the former with the consoles themselves.

Now a fourth option is in the works, and is due to launch in China tomorrow and in most Xbox markets starting 9 February 2021 – ‘Pulse Red’. If this controller is one you would like to add to your collection, you will be able to nab yourself one from $94.95 AUD or local equivalent, dependant on retailer availability. It will also come with a 14-day trial for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, granting you a fortnight of access to online play and an expansive game collection.

Below are statements from Microsoft about the design, and about the controller in general:

Today, we’re excited to introduce the latest design in the new generation of controllers, the Xbox Wireless Controller – Pulse Red. With a vivid, fiery-red topcase and crisp, white backcase, the new Pulse Red controller brings the same energy and equally striking colour as the Shock Blue. Matte black triggers, bumpers, and hybrid D-pad reduce slip against sweaty fingers and thumbs for greater control, while a textured dot pattern on the triggers and bumpers to keep your grip locked in. Dynamic Latency Input delivers controller inputs more frequently to your Xbox Series X|S for a more responsive gaming experience and seemingly instantaneous action.

You can wirelessly connect the new Pulse Red controller to your favourite gaming devices including Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with the built-in Xbox Wireless radio. You can also play wirelessly on Win10 PCs and Android devices with Bluetooth Low Energy for remote play from your console or cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on the go. The controller remembers multiple devices, so you can quickly and seamlessly switch between previously connected devices, while connecting with USB to your console or PC is also an option.
