Nobody like Xbox when it comes to generating hype around their console controls.

With the new Xbox Series X and S platforms on the market for a couple of months, the Redmond company released the Robot White and Shock Blue controllers that are not only compatible with the latter, but also with Xbox One, PC ( Windows 10) and Android and iOS devices.

In order not to slow down the pace, Microsoft has now announced the new Pulse Red control, a control that will show off textured triggers and bumpers, a hybrid directional pad, button mapping and Bluetooth technology, specifications that are also present in the two controls that precede it.
