Starting with the Phantom Black Special Edition, according to Microsoft, “It was inspired by the idea of catching a glimpse inside. This controller is about mystery meeting luxury to reveal the technology within the controller. From top to bottom, this controller fades from a high-tech translucent matte black to a stunning metallic champagne gold.”
As for the Grey/Blue model, Microsoft has described it by saying, “Grey monochrome ABXY, menu, and navigation buttons reinforce the modern minimalist design. For a pop of color, there are eye-catching blue accents at the base of the thumbsticks and on the back of the controller.” Both controllers are wireless and will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, along with Bluetooth support for gaming on devices like the Samsung Gear VR.
As for pricing, the Phantom Black model will be priced slightly higher at $70, while the Grey/Blue model will retail for $65. In terms of availability, the Phantom Black model will be sold in the US starting 11th of September, while the Grey/Blue model will be available on the 25th of September.
