During its Inside Xbox presentation at Gamescom, Microsoft revealed two new special edition Xbox controllers. One in a stealthy Night Ops Camo pattern and another in futuristic Sport Blue.

According to Microsoft, both aren’t just fancy new paint jobs of the bog-standard Xbox controller. Apparently, they also boast a couple of new touches that have some potential to provide enhanced comfort and control. Exciting!

On the Night Ops Camo Xbox Controller, that appears to be the addition of etched trigger grips. Maybe that’ll prevent your fingers from slipping off during particularly intense moments?

As for the Sport Blue Xbox Controller, that one is very proud of its rubberised diamond grip. These little sections on the back of the controller should make it more comfortable to hold and reduce the chance of slippage too.

Whether you’re interested in them for flair or functionality, pre-orders are now live for both controllers with prices starting at $69.99/£59.99.
