Even though the system won’t be out for a few days, Microsoft is already planning a contest to give its normal black controller a design boost.
Starting on November 21, Microsoft will hose a contest on its web page where users can submit their own original designs for the peripheral. Both amateur and professional artists are welcome to submit their ideas, recoloring everything from the analog sticks to the triggers to the D-pad however they see fit.
In addition, artists are encouraged to use the Windows 8 Fresh Paint app to earn a potential special prize in the contest.
The grand prize winner will snag $750 as the People’s Choice prize, while ten runners-up will get $500 prizes apiece. That would snag them their own Xbox One systems with ease. Good luck to all you artists out there!
The Xbox One releases on November 22.
