Microsoft is introducing the new Tech Series of Xbox Wireless Controllers. The first in the series is the Xbox Wireless Controller – Recon Tech Special Edition.
The Recon Tech Special Edition features a sleek, dark gray military design, rubberized diamond grip, and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 PCs and tablets.
In developing this new controller series, the Xbox team was inspired by military technology and performance patterns, exploring concepts stemming from combat armor and sci-fi mechanical gear. Premium finishes like a laser etched texture, gold accents and insignia are on the front of the controller. The back of the controller features textured diamond rubberized grip for added control and comfort.
This specialized controller also has the same features you know and love of the Xbox Wireless Controller, including improved wireless range and Bluetooth technology for gaming on Windows 10 devices or Samsung Gear VR. You can also take advantage of the custom button-mapping feature through the Xbox Accessories App, available for download from the Xbox Store or Windows Store.
This controller is available for pre-order for $69.99 USD and will start shipping to retailers worldwide starting April 25.
