Xbox today announced a host of planned enhancements to its hardware and services. In addition to cloud gaming improvements and new supported platforms for the Xbox app, it was announced that Xbox would be expanding its Design Lab store with even more customization options.
This includes new pastel colors – soft pink, orange, green and purple – as well as new Camo Top cases with matching side caps – Mineral Camo, Arctic Camo, Forest Camo, Sandglow Camo and Blaze Camo. These colors join the already extensive list of customization options that Xbox regularly adds to the Design Lab, including metallic finishes and rubberized grips.
The Xbox Design Lab allowed gamers to customize just about every component of their Xbox controllers, applying specific colors and themes to individual parts. If you want, you can even add printed text to the faceplate controller for an additional $10. Although the Design Lab doesn’t offer some of the customization options you can get from third-party manufacturers, each controller is only $69.99, a far cry from other bespoke controllers like the SCUF Instinct, which costs $189.98. . However, it is currently unclear whether these new options will have a higher price.
Along with these new ways to create a controller that’s uniquely yours, Xbox Design Lab will launch in 11 new countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Norway, Slovakia and Switzerland. . Taiwan will also have access to the Design Lab later this summer.
