Microsoft launches special edition Xbox Wireless Controller Tech Series

Now we're seeing another revision with the newly announced Xbox One Controller - Recon Tech Series.

To kick off the Tech Series, Microsoft will be offering a single controller named the Recon Tech Special Edition. This new Xbox Wireless Controller will cost $69.99 and it will be available worldwide starting April 25.

He also highlighted the "Laser-etched grips on the front and rubberized grips on the back".

In addition, players will be able to access custom button-mapping through the Xbox Accessories app, which is available through both the Xbox Store and Windows Store.
