Microsoft has made another breakthrough with its Recon Tech Series in the Xbox Wireless Controllers to hit the market. This latest release surpasses its predecessors and at the same time is able to compete with the elite variants. To start it off, they announced the unveiling of the Recon Tech Special Edition.
Hand in hand with the Xbox One Elite which was introduced September of last year, a lot more improvements are featured with the Xbox Elite Wireless controller. These improvements include: an obvious size increase on the digital direction pad, triggers that are swappable through “Hair Trigger Locks”, better button designs, and a whole lot impressive improvements to make every user’s £120 worth the purchase. Of course many gamers would think that £120 is too much to pay for a controller which is why Microsoft brought out its ace in the sleeve which is the Xbox Wireless Controller Tech Series that aims to give users the features of an elite version in a price of a standard controller.
Microsoft introduced the Recon Tech Special Edition in the newest family of controllers. Bree White, the marketing manager spearheading this product’s development announces “In developing this new controller series, the Xbox team was inspired by military technology and performance patterns, exploring concepts stemming from combat armour and sci-fi mechanical gear.” Along with its awesome features, it is designed with a laser etched texture with gold accents in the controller façade. At the back of the controller, gamers will be happy with the diamond texture and rubberized grip for additional comfort and better control.
As for the range of prices for the Tech Series, Microsoft has announced a £59.99 standard price within UK and a US retail price of $69.99 to go between the prices of the Xbox Elite Wireless controller and the standard variant which are $149.99 and $59.99 respectively. Despite the controllers’ popularity, it is at par with the company’s current special edition controllers when it comes to price. Some of these controllers that doesn’t differ much in the new controllers price are the Ocean shadow and the Winter Forces editions – these controllers mainly differs only in casing colors and the buttons.
