Microsoft continues their 20th Anniversary Celebration with some more accessories. The company has been slowly rolling out new merchandise to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the original Xbox which launched in 2001. The newest pieces are two very integral aspects of any video gamer; a controller and a headset. The company has officially unveiled the Xbox 20th Anniversary Controller and Headset, both of which are available to pre-order right now and will launch on November 15, the official anniversary date.

The controller is an Xbox Series X|S controller, except that it has some interesting features. The most eye-catching is that the top cover is translucent, showing the inner workings of the board and how all of the buttons work. The Xbox button in the middle is done in the design of the original Xbox logo, which has a green shade of color within it. There’s a 20 in the bottom right, signifying the 20th Anniversary. Lastly, the back on the handles is of a special green colorway, while the center area is the standard black. Like all other Xbox controllers, you can use this with your PC as well as your console. A really cool facet about the controller is that when you connect it to your console, it’ll unlock the 20th Anniversary dynamic background for you to enjoy on your dashboard.
The headset is similar to the controller where it also has a translucent cover, albeit only on the shell sections. The inner area has a hint of green, which also splashes onto the microphone at the end. The 20 is also seen on the left shell area, while the right has the Xbox name. This headset is also compatible with most PCs. The Xbox 20th Anniversary Controller and Headset will both cost $69.99 and will officially launch next month on November 15. You can pre-order both items right now.
