The Xbox controller of your dreams could be heading to your doorstep

Microsoft has announced the first user customised Xbox One controllers are now shipping to pre-order customers.

Announced at E3, the Moto Maker-like initiative gives Xbox ones the chance to design their own controllers with over 8 million possible colour combinations.

Since June 13, when Microsoft began accepting pre-orders, teams have been hand-making each pad and the first batch is now on my way.

They’ll be arriving on doorsteps in early September, while those ordering from the US and Canada today will receive them in 14 days.

Xbox Design Lab

Microsoft says it will expand the Design Lab to more markets in 2017, so Brits should be able to jump aboard soon.

Just because the firm isn’t shipping to the UK yet, doesn’t mean you can’t have a play and perfect your design in the meantime.

It would look pretty sweet next to an Xbox One S wouldn’t you think?
