If it's real, it needs to catch on, because its design could not only help multiple gamers who might otherwise struggle, but it could start a trend with the rest of the industry. The three LED lights seem to correspond to the programmable functions, with the white button toggling user control schemes. It also looks as though it has a USB port and 3.5mm audio jack on the left side. There's no indication whether the buttons are touch-sensitive or not.

As reported by Windows Central, this new controller was leaked online via many promotional pictures.

Official information regarding the new Xbox controller will hopefully arrive in the weeks ahead, though it's worth noting that Microsoft's plans may change or that the controller is just an excellent fraud.

According to a tweet from a tipster, Microsoft is expected to launch this new gaming controller in E3 2018 along with the next generation Xbox gaming console. It's too early to tell for sure, though.

The new controller might look amusing to most gamers, but this one is being designed for accessibility purposes.

If you've been waiting for a great deal before picking up Microsoft's current mainstream Xbox - or have just been keeping an eye out for a cheap 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player - you're in luck: you can now snag the Xbox One S with up to five games for only $299.
