“The Xbox Wireless Controller – Phantom Black Special Edition will be the envy of your friends. 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. Black buttons, triggers, thumbsticks and bumpers are accented with a champagne gold D-pad. On the back, textured grips will help you stay on-target when games get intense.”
“The Xbox Wireless Controller – Grey/Blue features a sleek, dark grey design. 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.”
