At Xbox, we believe that providing our fans with choices and opportunities to express themselves is a core part of our mission, so that players can more closely connect with their gaming experience, express their personality and individualism, and in their Xbox Put your own unique imprint on the identity.Five years ago, we launched Xbox Design Lab As a way for our community to design our own official Xbox wireless controller. Since then, we have seen hundreds of thousands of unique designs that allow users to express their creativity and bring their inspiration to life. Xbox Design Lab has always been there to celebrate milestones, such as birthdays, sports team championships and even marriage proposals, all with lettering controllers! Last October, we suspended the Xbox Design Lab because we were preparing for the release of the Xbox Series X|S and our new Xbox wireless controller. Today, we are happy to announce that the Xbox Design Lab is back to help you once again create a controller that clearly belongs to you.
What is Xbox Design Lab?
Xbox Design Lab is a custom program that provides different ways to create your own personalized Xbox wireless controller. Fans can customize the colors of almost all external parts of the controller, including the body, rear shell, arrow keys, bumpers, triggers, thumbsticks, ABXY, views, menus, and sharing buttons. With Xbox Design Lab, you can customize the controller to match your creative style, tell a story, or celebrate special occasions. From there, you can further personalize your design with laser engraving to add your name, player code or custom 16-character message. Then, we will make your controller by hand and deliver it to your door for free.
What’s new in this latest update?
Starting today, our new Xbox wireless controller is now available in Xbox Design Lab. Players will get all the benefits of the latest generation of Xbox wireless controllers, including improved ergonomics to accommodate a wider range of hand shapes, better cross-device connections, easier sharing and reduced latency.
Players can choose from 18 different available colors for most controller parts, and we are introducing new colors such as Shock Blue, Pulse Red and Electric Volt. Most of our color options are made of plastic that contains 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials by weight. * These color options will reduce the amount of waste plastic that ends up in the landfill and ensure that we all do our part to take care of the planet. We believe this work is critical and will continue to increase the number of PCRs we use in our products. We also added a new black and white ABXY button option for the view, menu, and share buttons, as well as a new black and white color option.
We have a bold vision for customization through Xbox Design Lab, and this update is just the beginning. Our team is working hard to develop new processes, test new materials and innovations so that we can continue to improve the Xbox Design Lab experience. In the coming months, we will share more information about new customization opportunities and new ways to personalize the gaming experience.
