Microsoft has made an eagerly awaited announcement for gaming enthusiasts in Malaysia – the official availability of the Xbox Wireless Controller. As part of Microsoft’s gaming brand expansion into new countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, and The Philippines, and with an extended presence in Thailand and Vietnam, this news marks an exciting development for gamers. Although the controller has been available through unofficial channels in Malaysia, its official introduction is a significant move.

The Xbox Wireless Controller in question is the latest version released alongside Microsoft’s current-generation Xbox Series X and Series S gaming consoles. While it’s not a new product, it’s essential to note that the controller requires two AA batteries for operation. Besides its compatibility with the Xbox consoles, it can also seamlessly connect to PCs and other compatible devices via wireless or USB-C cable.

For Malaysian gamers, the official Xbox wireless controller is available in six different options. These include the standard Carbon Black and Robot White colorways, as well as more vibrant options like Shock Blue, Pulse Red, and Electric Volt. Additionally, there’s a sixth option, a bundle that pairs the Carbon Black variant with a USB-C cable. Importantly, this bundled version is identical to the standalone releases and can be used wirelessly via Bluetooth.

In terms of pricing, Microsoft offers the standard Carbon Black and Robot White variants at RM319 each. Meanwhile, the more colorful Shock Blue, Pulse Red, and Electric Volt versions are available for RM339 each. Interestingly, the Xbox Wireless Controller + USB-C bundle is priced the same as the standard black and white versions at RM319, even though it includes a cable. These controllers can be purchased from various retailers, including All IT Hypermarket, Asashi, TMT, Harvey Norman, and more.


Pokdepinion: Okay, so now that we have this, when will the Xbox Series X / S be available officially here? I feel like it’s a matter of time but they could always choose to not bring it in if they feel that it wouldn’t do well in this country.
