Speaking about the Phantom Magenta finish, according to Microsoft, “The design is rooted in sci-fi, influenced by the type of aesthetics found in “Ex-Machina” and “Ghost in Shell,” and blended with mysterious luxury to create totally unique designs.”
As for the Arctic Camo design, according to Microsoft, “By using frosted transparent resin in the camo pattern, the controller camouflages itself from the inside-out. The diamond-texture on its triggers helps maintain a level of extra technical precision in this series.” The Phantom Magenta model will be released later this month for $69.99, while the Arctic Camo model will only arrive in May.
If you’re a bit apprehensive about buying a new controller with the Xbox Series X looming on the horizon, not to worry. This is because Microsoft had previously said that Xbox One controllers will be compatible with the newer Xbox Series X consoles, so it’s not as if you would be wasting your money.
