Xbox One Sport series kicks off with a sleek, white controller

New product pages for the Xbox Store are now available to Xbox Insiders

Along with its striking paint job, it has the same textured palm grips that debuted on the Patrol Tech and Combat Tech special edition controllers.

A while has passed since we last saw a new controller variant for the Xbox One. Aptly named the Xbox Wireless Controller Sport White Special Edition, the latest addition to the Xbox One controller family reminds me of the Dunlop squash trainers my dad used to wear in the 80s and 90s. The controller features the same white base color found in Xbox Design Lab, while the buttons, joysticks, and d-pad are colored mint, grey, and silver.

Xbox describes the new controller as something inspired "by trends in athletics and sports lifestyle". "Sport White Special Edition" (which is quite the name), this new controller actually doesn't have much of a color scheme. At the moment, it appears the stand will only be available in North America from August 7th - it will set you back US$49.99.

If you've made it this far and are still interested, you can pick up this new controller starting July 31 from the Xbox Store for $69 (nice). Players who purchase the controller in certain countries will also get a 14 day trial for both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

For the first time, too, the controller will be getting a matching charging stand so you can remain stylish and do away with those pesky AA batteries.
