Microsoft has always had a knack for savvy design and top-notch aesthetics when it comes to video game controllers, and nowhere is that more apparent than the new Phantom Black special edition Xbox One game pad.

The device features a translucent black design revealing the inner workings of the device with a sleek black-to-gold gradient. It comes with now-standard Bluetooth support and a 3.5mm jack for wired headsets, so it will work with any Windows 10-powered PC or tablet. The device is up for preorder now for $70, and it starts shipping on September 11th.
