Microsoft's newly designed Xbox controller leaked online

Microsoft Store Users Can Now Send PC Games as Digital Gifts

Microsoft's store now fully supports gifting

It looks like, Microsoft, one of the leading gaming console makers is working on a next-generation gaming console, which has a complete redesign with a newer form factor. The controller itself is thin and rectangular with two large, prominent buttons labeled "A" and "B".

For Xbox owners, they'll receive a system notification with a message that has a clickable redemption button.

Considering the design and features, Microsoft is less likely to replace a standard Xbox controller, instead, this one will be offered separately and interested users have to buy it separately by paying additional amount.

If this project is a reality, it is likely that in the coming weeks we will know more about it. The folks at Windows Central have also noted a three-light LED indicator which suggests that there could be programming layers, indicating that the controller could be customized according to the gamer's needs. The peripheral also appears to sport a USB port and 3.5mm audio jack.
