Xbox unveils new controller made from recycled old ones

Microsoft has unveiled a new Xbox controller made from plastics recovered from CDs, water jugs, car headlight covers and other old controller parts.

The controller – dubbed the Remix Special Edition – is also one-third made from reclaimed materials and regrind which is mechanically recycled leftover Xbox One controller parts.

The launch is the latest in Microsoft’s ongoing mission to use less new plastic in its production and reduce its waste. It complements a set of ambitious goals that have been set by Microsoft – and by extension, Xbox – to ‘meaningfully reduce its environmental impact’ and be carbon neutral, water positive, and zero waste by 2030.

“Sustainability at Xbox is more than a single destination,” said Phil Spencer, ceo of Microsoft Gaming. “It’s a long-term responsibility that requires commitment, innovation and accountability.”
