One of Microsoft’s E3 surprises may have been spoiled. The company’s own Xbox Support website reveals a new version of the Xbox One controller that features a 3.5mm headphone port at its base.
A line from the description explains that this port will “only available on controllers released after June 2015.” This timing would suggest an announcement at Microsoft’s E3 briefing next month, though this has not been confirmed. It’s also unclear if a 3.5mm port is just one of the rumored controller’s new features.
The new controller design, in terms of form factor, is identical to the existing controller. This would be the first change to the Xbox One controller since launch in November 2013. Controller revisions are somewhat rare in console gaming, though Microsoft does have a history of making tweaks.
