Microsoft today announced the new Xbox Wireless Controller – Remix Special Edition featuring recovered plastics. To achieve this unique look, Microsoft mixed PCR resins with regrind consisting of previously molded colored parts creating custom, earth-tone colors with subtle variations, swirling, and texturing – giving each Remix special edition controller its own look and feel.
By incorporating these regrind materials, post-consumer recycled resins, and including the Xbox Rechargeable Battery Pack – Xbox is exploring ways to use less new plastic and reduce waste.
Highlights of the design:
- The various earth-tone colors create a patchwork effect, featuring bright pops of color that create a vibrant yet serene vibe.
- The bright green Xbox button, D-pad, and front case color are inspired by lichen found in the Pacific Northwest Forest.
- The bumpers, triggers, and side grip areas feature a topographic texture pattern, a nod to the earth’s dynamic landscape, while maintaining the tactility that our customers like.
This special edition controller also comes with Xbox Rechargeable Battery Pack that lets you play without using disposable batteries.
The Xbox Wireless Controller – Remix Special Edition is available for preorder for $84.99 USD, and will be shipping from April 18.
