New Paintjob Turns XBox One Controller Into Stormtrooper Head

by on 10/07/2015

Someone looked at an XBox One controller recently and said, “You know, if you squint and hold it to the light, the silhouette kind of looks like a Stormtrooper head.” Then he thought, “Hey, I know how I can make money!”
Extreme Consoles is a company based in the UK that restyles existing consoles, controllers and handhelds with custom paint jobs. Their most recent offering is an XBox One controller skin that turns the thing into a Stormtrooper head, just in time for the release of Star Wars Battlefront, an anticipated shooter this holiday season.
Microsoft seems to be okay with the product — better than okay. Phil Spencer, boss of all things XBox, tweeted a photo of the controller this morning, feeling more than amused. A bigger question is what Disney might think. Nobody tell them.
You can get a Stormtrooper XBox One controller by purchasing it from the Extreme Consoles website (warning: autoplaying video ahead). US gamers may have to pay tariff, though. If you’re more of a PS4 person, you can do one better: there will be a Darth Vader console design released alongside Battlefront, and this one is official.
