Microsoft has revealed a new Pulse Red Xbox Wireless Controller colourway.
The striking peripheral was revealed on the Xbox blog, and is set to launch on February 9 “in most Xbox markets”, but will launch in China tomorrow, on January 12. Microsoft has said that purchase of the controller will include a 14-day trial of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in select markets.

The Pulse Red controller will cost $64.99 and features all of the same controller innovations introduced with the launch of Xbox’s next-gen console, such as a USB-C port and a dedicated Share button. It’s very similar in design to the Shock Blue colourway which arrived with the next-gen launch, given its white back case, black bumpers and D-pad.
Similarly, the ABXY buttons are coded red on this model, so there’s a nifty little motif in between them to show the original corresponding colours which may be displayed on-screen.
In other peripheral news, Microsoft recently issued a survey to Series X and S owners asking if they wish PS5 DualSense features were present in the Series X controller. You can check out our review of the Xbox Series X controller here, which we called a “positive evolution” from last gen’s Xbox One controller.
