Did you get an Xbox One for Christmas? Awesome! Now is the time to start collecting these limited editions controllers, then. Here are some of our favorites!
The Xbox One has been around for a couple years, and even though we have loved the console from the get-go, it’s controller wasn’t a major smash-success like with the Xbox 360, who was beloved even by PC gamers. Microsoft has been improving their designs and have now created the best gamepad in gaming history, but along the way produced a few really cool and rare limited edition controllers, which we want to show you in this story. Here are our favorite Xbox One Limited Edition Controllers, and where to purchase them!
Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Controller
This is a very special edition joystick, inspired by Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the first Call of Duty to appear on the Xbox One. This $79.99 USD controller features a custom design inspired by the Sentinel Task Force from the game, and was made in limited quantities so it quickly became a hot item. We particularly like the grey background with gold details, as it is a gamma we don’t usually see in gaming.
Xbox One Special Edition Midnight Forces Wireless Controller
The Xbox One Special Edition Midnight Forces Wireless Controller is a beautiful gamepad with a special camouflage pattern and military look. It’s not that different from other models (despite the fact that it includes redesigned thumbsticks and D-pad enhancements) except for the fact that it is particularly pretty, but the fact that it used to be a Best Buy exclusive and was made in limited quantities turnet it into a collector’s item. You can buy one for $73.95 USD.
Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces Wireless Controller
The Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces Wireless Controller is yet another Xbox One controller with a modern camouflage pattern. this time in black and grey for a more grim, cool look. It was one of the first controllers to feature the much requested 3.5mm stereo headset jack so users could plug in their compatible headsets.
Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Master Chief Controller
This beauty over here is the Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Master Chief Controller, inspired by the signature colors of Master Chief’s armor with laser etched design. The controller is absolutely beautiful and a must-have for any fan of the series, for not only features all the latest implementations in Xbox One gamepads (yes, the 3.5 stereo jack included), but also a Halo 5 Bonus Req pack download code featuring a Dauntless visor, so you get perks both inside and outside the game. This Xbox One gamepad costs $72.99 USD, and is also quickly becoming a collector’s item.
Xbox One Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Controller
