The special edition controller is the second in the series.

During the Inside Xbox stream on Tuesday, Xbox announced a new wireless controller that will be added to the Sport Series.

The new controller is called the Sport Red Special Edition, and is the second controller in the series that was launched this past summer. The first controller in the Sport Series was the Sport White Special Edition and featured mint, grey, and silver accents.

The new controller is primarily red in color and features darker red and transparent accents on the buttons and joysticks, with a metallic red D-pad. Hits of silver can be seen in patterns on the front as well.


Dark red diamond rubberized grips on the back of the controller are meant for comfort and to make your hands less tired during long hours of play.

The wireless controller comes with a 14-day free trial Xbox Live Gold membership, as well as an Xbox Game Pass in certain regions.

The Sport Red Special Edition will be available for purchase on March 5 for $69.99 USD.

Along with the new controller, Xbox announced the Sport Red Special Edition Xbox Pro Charging Stand – an officially-licensed Xbox Pro Charging Stand from Controller Gear, in the exact same design. The charging stand will be available on May 1 in North America for $49.99.

Xbox is well known for their unique controller designs, as they released a glow-in-the-dark Sea of Thieves controller last year, and made a huge step with inclusivity by creating the Xbox Adaptive Controller for gamers with mobility restrictions, that just released this past fall.
