The Starfield Xbox controller release date has leaked ahead of the accessory’s reveal at the Xbox Games Showcase this weekend. According to the latest rumors, the controller and an accompanying headset will both be with us sooner rather than later, and they’ve already been seen at retailers already.
The Starfield Xbox controller and headset release date
Both the Starfield Xbox controller and the headset are rumored to be released on June 11, 2023. According to renowned leaker and notable insider billbil-kun on Dealabs, they will be available for purchase after the Xbox Games Showcase ends.
The Starfield controller has already been spotted at retailers in the US by Twitter user @NunezShy. The box seems to confirm the controller’s appearance, already seen in many images that have been circulating since April on Imgur. These show a predominantly white controller with Starfield colors springing from the Xbox button. There is a red back with gray grip pads, grey and white buttons and joysticks, and transparent triggers. The controller is covered in detailing similar to a spaceship control panel.
In an insider video from eXtas1s on Twitter, the headset is seen to have a similar appearance. The predominantly white headset has a red headband, grey ear cups, a semi-transparent microphone, Starfield colors above the right ear, and plenty of detailing.
Previous rumors had already suggested the controller would be available in North America and Europe and would be priced at €74.99/$79.99. The headset would be priced at €124.99/$124.99. Now it seems like the UK price has been added to the list, with the controller available for ?69.99 and the headset for ?114.99.
All of these rumors are now expected to be confirmed during the showcase, which starts at 10 a.m. PT on June 11 on the Xbox YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook channels.
