The high-vis yellow top case contrasts against the matte black hybrid D-pad while the white back case adds more dimension to the design. Textured grip on the bumpers, triggers, and back case help provide greater control. The new Xbox Wireless Controller – Electric Volt will be available for Rs 5,890 beginning May 20 in India.
