The New Red Xbox One Controller Looks Like Candy And I Want To Eat It

Today Microsoft introduces two new official colors to the Xbox One Wireless Controller line. There’s green and orange, which looks like an escapee from a Halo bundle, and sweet, delicious red, with its colorful candy buttons and delicious gummi analog sticks. It makes my teeth ache. Advertisement Available exclusively from the Microsoft Store and GameStop, the $64.99 Red controller features a simple two-tone red design that evokes red licorice, dark cherry Starbursts and other things slightly more edible than machined plastic. The buttons look like hard candy, and the analog nubs look like they need chewing much more than the standard ones. It’s probably just me, but sometimes designs and colors schemes come together in such a way that I just want to sink my teeth into them. The new red controller probably doesn’t actually smell or taste like those dried chocolate cherries they sell in the slightly-fancier part of the candy aisle, but damn if I don’t want it to.

A Breakdown Of The Nintendo Switch’s New Controllers

Nintendo’s 2017-slated Switch console will offer a competitive controller that seems to draw from Nintendo’s old GameCube controller as well as the Xbox’s. This is exciting for Wii U players who have long complained about the Wii U Pro controller’s layout. Here’s a breakdown of what’s interesting about the coming Switch pro controller: Like an Xbox controller, the Switch’s pro controller will situate its joysticks on a diagonal rather than a horizontal axis. On the Switch, the second analog stick will be on the bottom right. This frees up the top right side of the controller for button-mashing—buttons that, like the Wii U Pro’s, Xbox’s and PS4’s, are in a diamond shape. It’s a good idea on a few fronts. The Switch pro controller’s joysticks will resemble a GameCube controller’s, which competitive Super Smash Bros. players still use ten years after the GameCube’s release. It’s clunky to move your right thumb to the bottom right of the controller to use a attack buttons—or at least, counter-intuitive. Smash Bros. fans used to “Smash” attacks on the “C” stick—a la GameCube—will be pleased with the change.
