    Microsoft is finally furthering their efforts to expand upon their customization options they offer to their hardcore fans. In order to do this, they have introduced a new way for Xbox fans to customize one of the key elements when it comes to gaming: your controller. Introducing the Xbox Design Lab, Microsoft’s new online controller customization program that will give their fans over 8 million different color combinations to choose from. With XDL, your controller will now become a unique product you can truly call your own.

    Every controller available in the Xbox Design Lab is an official Xbox Wireless Controller that’s ready to be splashed with whatever colors come to your mind. You’ll be able to customize everything from the controller’s body, back case, and D-pad, to the bumpers, triggers, thumb sticks, ABXY, View, and Menu buttons. The options aren’t necessarily restricted to colors, because what’s a custom controller without your name laser engraved onto it? That’s right, you’ll be able to have your name, gamertag, or any other custom message, just as long as it’s 16 characters or less. If you’re stuck on what design you should use, go ahead and check out the Xbox Community Gallery to see what other designs fans have come up with. You can save your favorites, and even share them to your friends via email or social media!

    Every Xbox Design Lab controller will come with the new features that the Xbox One S controller will have. It’ll be compatible with both the Xbox One S and the standard Xbox One. With features such as a textured grip, extended wireless signals, and Bluetooth capabilities for a seamless connection to your Windows 10 powered PC, what’s not to love?

    The Xbox Design Lab is currently open for customers in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. Every controller will cost you $79.99 USD, and $99.99 CAD for Canadian customers. If you want your controller to have laser engraving, that’ll run you an extra $9.99 USD and $14.99 CAD. Ordering your controller between now and the beginning of August will ensure Microsoft ships your custom controller out as early as September. Any order placed after the specified time frame will be shipped out within 14 business days after ordering. If you’re disheartened about your country not having access to the Xbox Design Lab, worry not. Microsoft will be extending the reach for their custom controller options to in 2017, so stay tuned until then.

    Design lab offers a matte colored shell and some colored thumbsticks. Honestly nothing special. There are definitely better sites out there to get a custom controller done. A friend of mine has used modjunkiez for years with no problems. I have one to they have some awesome designs. They are a bit pricier but i feel you get what you pay for in the long run most of the time.

    I still hope they'll make a 2 handed controller in which the controller is physically split into two different parts with more buttons on each side for more customization.

    There have been sites to do this for years, but with this price tag, I think it's pretty neat. If I ever need a new controller, I can pay the $10 extra and get a colored one. Competition charges way more than that.

    Haven't we been able to do this for the past two years? Just checked it out btw and I think there a way better websites for way more customisable options out there.

    Its a good deal if people are looking for a customized controller, your just paying a little more than a regular controller and its good for people who don't want to do it theirself.

    Got to say this is pretty crap. Half those colors are just plan boak (Im Glasweigan/Scottish) - barf- material anyway, and the price is just crazy.
