Here’s something for your collection of controllers: Each Xbox Stormcloud Vapor Special Edition controller comes with its own unique pattern of whirling clouds imprinted on it.

Available from August 8, 2023, for $69.99, this new special edition of the regular Xbox Wireless Controller can now be pre-ordered over at the Microsoft Store. Held in a gray-blue color scheme, stormcloud patterns are visible on the entire surface of the input device. Microsoft promises that each controller will have an individual pattern so that none look 100% identical to each other.

Aside from that, this device comes with all the usual goodies: textured grip on the triggers, bumpers, and back-case, rubberized grips, the ability to map buttons, and Bluetooth connectivity to enable wireless play with the Xbox Series X|S, PC, and mobile devices. As usual, you can also connect a headset through the controller’s headset jack.

The controller can also be used while being connected to a device through a cable. Without one, Microsoft promises 40 hours of battery life while gaming.

Xbox Wireless Controllers are pretty solid pieces of technology with a wide range of uses. They are especially simple to set up on PC, making them a highly regarded choice on the platform.

The Xbox Stormcloud Vapor Special Edition is the latest stylized controller Microsoft is offering. Recent special editions of the hardware include a Porsche Edition, a Barbie Edition, and a TMNT Edition that includes a scent-dispenser, which sprays out the smell of pizza.
