what you need to know

  • A new Xbox Series X|S controller skin was previously leaked via an Amazon listing, the controller is called the Stellar Shift.
  • The controller has now been confirmed and is available for sale directly from Xbox and will retail for $69.99.
  • The controller “changes color with light and movement” and has a swirl design similar to the Lunar Shift controller released last year.

UPDATE (16:45 FEBRUARY 7, 2023)

As of now, Xbox has confirmed that the Stellar Shift Special Edition controller is available to order. It will retail for $69.99 in the US, £59.99 in the UK, and €64.99.

We know Xbox loves its special-edition controllers, and it’s been quiet on that front since Lunar Shift launched in October. Well, fear not, because a leak on some European Amazon sites shows that we may have a new controller on the way, the Stellar Shift, which is scheduled to launch on February 14.

The leak was initially published by Twitter user billbil-kun in this informative post, where they confirm that the listing price is €64.99, which means a similar price of $70.

The Stellar Shift name and design seem to fit in with the other two controllers in this range, the Lunar Shift and Aqua Shift variations. In fact, the packaging photos show identical descriptions of the controller’s design in that it features a “surreal glow”, so it will subtly change color in light similar to the Lunar Shift controller. The textured grips also have the same striking swirl design, albeit in a purple and black colorway.

Some entertaining theories have been shared on Reddit and Twitter, with some Xbox fans pointing to the emergence of this space-themed controller as supporting evidence of an upcoming Starfield release date or new trailer. It remains to be seen if there is any truth to this, or if this is an extreme case of hopium from the Xbox community. What we can say though is that this is a beautiful controller that will certainly make a great companion for playing Starfield when it is released.

We will keep you posted when this driver is officially released through Microsoft.
