About five years ago, Microsoft introduced Xbox Design Lab. This was a special service that allowed you to design, create, and purchase your very own original Xbox Wireless Controller from Microsoft. You could have all sorts of color combinations and even have a custom engraving added.

The service went away for a little while as Microsoft prepared for the launch of the Xbox Series X|S and their new Xbox Wireless Controller. Well, with those systems officially out there on the market (if you can find one), it was time to bring back the Xbox Design Lab.

You are able to color-customize nearly every part of the controller. This includes the body, the D-pad, bumpers, triggers, thumbsticks, A/B/X/Y buttons, View, Menu, and Share buttons. You can once again add a personal engraving on it up to 16 characters long. Once you've decided on your ideal controller and purchased it, Microsoft will make it and ship it to you with free shipping.

Starting today, our new Xbox Wireless Controllers are now available in Xbox Design Lab. Players will receive all the benefits that come with the newest generation of Xbox Wireless Controllers, including improved ergonomics for a wider range of hand sizes, better cross-device connectivity, easier sharing, and reduced latency.

Players can choose from 18 different available colors for most controller parts and we are introducing new colors like Shock Blue, Pulse Red, and Electric Volt. Most of our color options are made with plastics containing 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials by weight.* These color options will reduce the amount of waste plastic that ends up in landfills and ensure we are all doing our part to take care of the planet. We believe this work is critical and will continue to increase the amount of PCR that we use in our products. We are also adding a new black-on-color ABXY button option, as well as a new black-on-white color option for the View, Menu and Share buttons.
Microsoft says that additional customization options and "new ways to personalize your gaming experience" may be coming in the months ahead. They are also considering an option that will let you make a customized Elite controller eventually.
