If you are following the official Xbox account on Twitter, then you may have noticed an image of an Xbox One controller with a surprisingly detailed Mandalorian theme and a corresponding charging base popping up there today. This is apparently the last creation of Controller Gear, and will be released later this year. Before deciding what you want, you should probably take a look at the price, because this controller will definitely cost you a significant amount of money.
As detailed in the Microsoft Store, this Mandalorian controller will cost an incredible $ 170, which is almost as much as an Xbox Elite Series 2 Controller. Granted, the Mandalorian controller comes with a corresponding charging base, but even so, we’re assuming $ 170 is more than most people would like to spend on a controller.
For those who are not intimidated by the cost, it definitely looks like they will make their money worthwhile in terms of design. The controller itself is made to look like the Mandalorian’s armor, with wear, scratches and dirt to boot. On the controller’s handles, we see the Mandalorian insignia and seal, while the accompanying crib has a Mandalorian emblem on it.
In the back, we even have a little wanted poster for The Child on the battery door, because, of course, you can’t have a piece of Mandalorian merchandise without Baby Yoda. Keep in mind that this is an Xbox One wireless controller, not an Xbox Series X controller. This gamepad will still work with the Xbox Series X when the console launches next month, but you will lose features like the share button dedicated and the redesigned d-pad.
It also doesn’t seem to have an adequate release date yet. The Microsoft Store list shows a release date of December 31, 2020, but this is generally used as a placeholder date and only serves to tell us that it will be released before the end of the year. It’s pre-ordered now, so if you have $ 170 burning a hole in your pocket, it might be worth a look.
