The Xbox Wireless Controller - Phantom White Special Edition was just announced during the latest Inside Xbox stream, and it's coming this April. For $69.99, you can nab the second controller in the company's Phantom Series, after the Phantom Black Special Edition. It blends a smoky gray at the top of the controller with a translucent white and gold mechanical components underneath with an opaque matte white.

The buttons, triggers, thumbtacks, and bumpers feature a glossy white with grey accents, and the back has textured grips to see you in the game. The controller, like the rest Xbox has to offer, is compatible with the Xbox One "family" and includes support for a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth connectivity, and custom button-mapping. It also comes rocking 14-day trials for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, just in case you need access to either service to go along with your new controller.
