Xbox is bringing back its Xbox Design Lab service, which will allow players to create and customize their own controllers, back to Xbox Series X|S. The service originally launched in 2016 and allowed players to create their own Xbox One controllers. Microsoft took the service offline in October of 2024 for “updates.”
Well, the updates are apparently done, and Design Lab is back today and players will now be able to create their own Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S controllers. The service offers 18 colors to choose from, including three new colors specifically added for Xbox Series X|S controllers: Shock Blue, Electric Volt, and Pulse Red.
Players can also customize the controller’s body, back, right and left bumpers and triggers, D-pad, thumbsticks, face buttons and the View, Menu and Share buttons. In addition, each controller can be engraved with the player’s gamertag or a custom message up to 16 characters long. Most of the colors offered are also made by using “30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials by weight,” senior director of strategy and business James Hunter said in a Xbox Wire blog post. Players can customize and order their new controllers on the Xbox Design Lab website.
