After the reveal of both the Xbox Series X and PS5 controller earlier this year, many lamented the fact Xbox played it safe with their controller design. Compared to the DualSense, the Series X controller is strikingly similar to the Xbox One's.

The controller's design is understandable. Xbox's main message this console generation is choice. Gamers can play Series X games on the Xbox One, use their Xbox One controller on the next-gen console and, use the new Series X controller on their previous console.

One thing that is sure to invigorate the Series X controller is customisation.

We know very little about the console, but there is speculation that, much like the Xbox One S, the bases Series S will come in white.

If true, this could explain where the white Xbox controller comes from, with a Series S playtester leaking the controller ahead of its reveal.

Of course, the white controller could be part of a bundle alongside a white Xbox Series X, but as of the moment, we're still in the dark.
