The new Xbox Series X/S console collection in pastel pink, purple, blue, white and white, is filled with the vibe of spring. But the designs aren’t just a pretty face – nope, these young consoles also have special features to enhance your gaming experience. Do you love the sound of Xbox consoles, and haven’t gotten your hands on one yet? Be sure to check out our guide on where to buy the Xbox Series S.
In partnership with PowerA, OtterBox, and 8BitDo, Microsoft has created six amazing consoles (and one case), with three different builds to improve gameplay (see above). All PowerA remotes (White Wire Controllers) feature two programmable game buttons on the back of the design.
The 8BitDo (pink remote control with black wire) design also features two buttons on the back of the design, but the fun doesn’t stop there. This remote also features button mapping, so you can adjust everything from vibration to trigger sensitivity.
The design of the OtterBox is particularly interesting. In Lilac Dream color, the console case fits snugly over the Xbox Series X/S console as a durable case. The clear, glossy sleeve fits on the remote control and features customizable knobs that you can interchange on your device. This state is perfect for any of those players who suffer from player rage (coughing, not me, coughing) because it’s so powerful.
The designs will set you back between $37.99 and $44.99—and considering how beautiful they are, I tend to buy the entire set. I love the colors and patterns in the designs, especially the Cotton Candy Blue and Lilac Swirl remotes (so Xbox, shock me). And I’m sorry Sony, but these remotes look much nicer than the new DualSense controllers. Plus, imagine how good it would be to play your favorite games with the two extra buttons you’ve assigned to the game – pretty cool, right?
We’ll have to wait until April to get our gauntlets on consoles, but in the meantime, why not get ready for launch by enjoying some new games for consoles to play with? Be sure to check out our roundup of the best Xbox Series X games.
