Microsoft Xbox One's Design Your Own Controller is the coolest thing that ever happened to consoles. Launched in 2016, this cool feature allows users to customize their controller according to their liking or add a name or message. According to Microsoft, there are 8 million possible combinations.
Unfortunately, the Design Your Own Controller feature will stay exclusive in US and Puerto Rican soil. Gamespot reveals that Xbox Marketing boss Aaron Greenberg himself confirmed the bad news. His comment was based on the rumor that the Design Lab was heading to the UK. "Not at this time unfortunately. The team has heard the feedback from fans who want more in more markets." Greenberg said.
Last year, Microsoft announced the Design Lab would be released in other regions in 2017. It still remains to be seen whether this will happen. But with Greenberg's pronouncement, it looks unlikely. The Design Your Own Controller feature of the Microsoft Xbox One lets users customize the color of the controller's bumpers, triggers, D-pad, thumbsticks, to name just a few. As for personalized messages, it can be up to 16 characters long.
News Locker revealed that Microsoft is the only platform-holder that offers such feature. Design Lab controllers of the Microsoft Xbox One costs $80 which is $20 higher than the standard cost. For additional custom laser-engraving, just add $90 to make the total price $90. To personalize their controllers, users would have to go to the Xbox Design Lab website.
The Verge revealed that the controllers will be available with the smaller models of Microsoft Xbox One. For the standard controllers, including the Bluetooth for better range and subtle but pleasant textured and grippy back panel. Greenberg revealed that through the Design Lab, a man was able to ask his girlfriend to marry him and she said "Yes."
