Microsoft has in the past week, launched a new Xbox controller which is made up of a few recycled materials including old CDs, water jugs and much more. Microsoft is even using old old gamepads, auto headlight covers with some materials coming from old Xbox controllers. The launch coincides with Earth Day which is on 22nd April this year.
The controller doesn’t have any special features over a normal controller, but does include an Xbox Rechargeable Battery Pack to help reduce the usage of disposable AA batteries. On the back, there are some subtle texturing and patterns which according to Microsoft “draws inspiration from natural landscapes and the physical world around us.”
The new Remix Special Edition controller is on sale now to pre-order for £74.99 in the UK and $84.99 in the US. First shipments to customers starts on 18th April.
