Xbox has announced an exclusive X019 controller for Xbox One controllers.
Designed by the London-based DPM Studio, the new Xbox One pad is kitted out with a white, grey, black and green camouflage aesthetic.
DPM, the studio behind the design, has used their camouflage expertise from designing Hardy Blechman’s London based streetwear label, maharishi, and transformed their craft into a gorgeous controller.
The design follows an Aquabrush print: a custom camouflage that was made exclusively for X019. Aquabrush is inspired by the traditional 1950’s lizard-brushstroke camouflage and the River Thames in London. The design brings together the origins of artistry in camouflage design and the celebration of the rich culture of the U.K., subtly integrating iconic landmarks in London and a section of the River Thames with the hallmark maharishi dragon.
The controller will only have 1000 units created so those who wish to pick up the device, either in person at the event or online, will have to act fast. Microsoft has said that the DPM controller is their most limited-run controller yet.
Those who wish to purchase the Aquabrush controller will be able to purchase the device in November 14th at 2pm PST/10pm BST. The storepage will go live directly after the newest episode of Inside Xbox and will cost $99.99.
The controller will be available from Microsoft Store online in the U.S., Canada, and the following European countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lichenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. For those of you going to XO19 in London, the controller will also be available in very limited quantities each day of X019 at the Copper Box Arena and at the flagship Microsoft Store in London on November 14.
The Aquabrush design will also be available in a host of new apparel that will be exclusive to the event. See below.
