Xbox One 'Armed forces' controller and headset hit US in October

New peripherals get "modern camouflage pattern and military look"

Microsoft will release new 'Armed Forces' special editions of its Xbox One controller and wireless headset in US this October.

The controller and headset, priced at at $64.99 and $89.99 respectively, will come with a "modern camouflage pattern and military look" adorning their outer shell.

The controller will have a 'Metallic chrome' d-pad, but both units will otherwise be functionally identical to the regular offerings.

Microsoft is yet to set a specific day of release in October, and it's unclear how limited supplies may be.

Here's a full gallery of the two new SKUs.
