Microsoft allows players to express their creative sides through Xbox Design Lab. It's a customization website where Xbox players can make the controller of their dreams and share their designs with others. I thought it would be a great idea to share some Xbox Design Lab ideas inspired by popular video game characters.
Xbox Design Lab Ideas Based on Video Game Characters
Players can customize an Xbox Wireless Controller or an Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. I stuck with Xbox Wireless Controllers since they are more affordable. They start at $69, and the other controllers have a base price of $149.
Some Xbox Wireless Controller customization options require players to spend more money. Rubberized back and side grips cost $5.99 more. Metallic triggers and D-Pads add $3.99 per customization.
I wanted to include a variety of familiar faces from different genres. Gamers will recognize the color schemes of many iconic characters, from the famous Italian plumber to everyone's favorite yellow Shih Tzu.

Buyers won't be able to change or cancel any controllers since Microsoft starts building them as soon as they're ordered. Controllers also can't be returned since they're customized for each buyer.
