Today Microsoft introduces two new official colors to the Xbox One Wireless Controller line. There’s green and orange, which looks like an escapee from a Halo bundle, and sweet, delicious red, with its colorful candy buttons and delicious gummi analog sticks. It makes my teeth ache.

Available exclusively from the Microsoft Store and GameStop, the $64.99 Red controller features a simple two-tone red design that evokes red licorice, dark cherry Starbursts and other things slightly more edible than machined plastic. The buttons look like hard candy, and the analog nubs look like they need chewing much more than the standard ones.

It’s probably just me, but sometimes designs and colors schemes come together in such a way that I just want to sink my teeth into them. The new red controller probably doesn’t actually smell or taste like those dried chocolate cherries they sell in the slightly-fancier part of the candy aisle, but damn if I don’t want it to.

Meanwhile, exclusive to the Microsoft Store and Walmart, the new Green and Orange is just another gamepad.
