With The Mandalorian Season Two premiering on Disney Plus in just a few days, Microsoft is honoring the occasion with a Beskar-infused Xbox controller design, available for prior order now.
The special edition Mandalorian Wireless Xbox Controller & Xbox Pro Charging Stand Set retails for $ 170 / £ 170. That’s $ 70 / £ 75 more than you would spend on a standard controller and charging stand. You can order it now, but hold on: the current release date is December 31, 2020, which means it won’t ship quite in time for the holidays.
This will give you plenty of time to get your hands on an Xbox Series X or Series S in the meantime. The controller is compatible with both the consoles of the series, the current generation of Xbox One family and most PC games.
Mandalorian Wireless Xbox Controller and Xbox Pro Charging Stand Kit: $ 169.99 on Microsoft US; £ 169.99 at Microsoft UK
Grab this temporary Xbox collector controller, compatible with the Xbox One, Series X and PC. With the theme of Din Djarin’s armor, helmet and clan seal, it’s the perfect controller for you or the Star Wars fanatic in your life. View deal
Featuring a battle-drawn silver and gray pattern, two Mythosaur and Mudhorn seals (one for each grip) and a Mandalorian helmet on the charging stand, this controller is designed for dedicated fans of the show.
Unfortunately, it has the same physical configuration as current Xbox One controllers. You won’t find some of the ergonomic and functional improvements of the Series X controllers: tactile texture on triggers and grips, more compact bumpers and triggers, a new Share button and a hybrid D-pad.
But for gamers who are perfectly satisfied with the current Xbox Wireless Controller design, this Mandalore-themed controller is bound to be a great purchase for Star Wars enthusiasts, and is sure to become a sought-after collector’s item.
