The red-and-white controller will release in most Xbox markets on February 9 and starting tomorrow in China, the platform holder said.
The Pulse Red pad features a red topcase, white backcase, and matte black triggers, bumpers and d-pad. The controller joins the three colours launched alongside Xbox Series X and S in November; Carbon Black, Robot White, and Shock Blue.
Microsoft is currently using a customer experience survey to ask Xbox Series X/S owners if they would like to see any PlayStation controller features made available for its consoles.
In a questionnaire distributed to customers who have purchased Xbox Series X/S consoles, one question appears to be canvassing interest in PS5’s DualSense controller, which also launched in November and has been widely praised for features including its adaptive triggers.

Last week, Microsoft also said it was working on a fix for disconnection issues players are experiencing with the new Xbox wireless controller that launched alongside Series X/S.
The controller, which is compatible with consoles, PC, mobiles and tablets, loses connection in various circumstances, and for some people only when playing certain games, according to over 1,700 users on a 44-page thread in Microsoft’s help forum.
