When it comes down to gamers and their hobby, making things suit them is something deeply personal and important. Plenty of players enjoy making any kind of peripheral or console something unique to them through customization in whatever way they can. Be it whether they’re using a keyboard or a controller to play, it’s one of the main things that brings different gaming fans together. When it comes to customizing controllers, one Xbox Series X owner customizes controllers for a living and has made a rather impressive galaxy-style one.
Reddit user TheTrueTero runs a custom controller digital storefront known as XYKOTIC Customs, which gives shoppers the chance to bring home a unique PS5 or Xbox Series X controller of different pre-set builds. If shoppers want, they can also spend the money to customize one to make it even more special and specific to them.
TheTrueTero went to Reddit to share the Series X/S controller they’ve made, which features a shell with a gorgeous galaxy shell on the front with metallic blue buttons for an extra finish. Fans on Reddit spoke of how amazing the controller looked while also asking the shopkeeper questions about their website, possibly leading to a few new sales in the process.
For those also in love with the controller, fans who want to purchase it should make sure they have the money to do so. The custom shell alone leads to a rather high price, with the listing for the galaxy controller on XYKOTIC Customs being $300 in Canadian dollars or $238.40 dollars in US dollars. Still, for some fans, the money may be well worth it for a unique controller such as this to place in players’ Xbox controller collections, as well as supporting a small business in the process as a result.
If the galaxy controller is impressive enough, XYKOTIC Customs has a few more options for potential buyers to shift through, each one featuring customizable parts if one wanted a certain shell with different buttons. The website offers multiple different kinds for each type of player, be it for casual or competitive use.
While the website seems to be newly launched, and therefore only offering a small selection for now, TheTrueTero has already shared another controller they’ve made through a custom order for their site, which means more are definitely on the way. Interested fans should definitely keep an eye on the seller’s Reddit just in case their dream Xbox Series Xcontroller that they can’t live without is about to be put up for sale.
