This design looks like someone threw up cotton candy on their controller. With that said, I don’t hate it. I’m just not sure what exactly is Forza about this other than the barely visible logo to the side. At the same time though, I definitely don’t need a controller with a picture of a car on it. At the end of the day, this thing is rad as hell. Give me more crazy designs like this, Microsoft. The price point however is $10 more than the other first-party Xbox controllers retail for. I’m guessing it’s either to offset an extra step in the manufacturing process to get the paint splatter effect or it’s because Microsoft knows that I’ll still buy this at $69 anyway.
