The Dual Shock I had a few months ago started to lose its power. Not only were the vibrations felt in my hands vague, but the connection was also frequently disconnected. Thinking about it, I’ve been using it for nearly 5 years, so I thought it might be time to go. So, for a while, I played games with a keyboard and mouse and thought about purchasing the next gamepad. In fact, I’ve often heard that Xbox gamepads are good, but the problem was that it was hard to find a design I liked due to out of stock.

Then, on the 9th, I heard that Microsoft was expanding the ‘Xbox Design Lab’, which was only conducted in some countries, to Korea. Suddenly, “Now!” I had a thought. If there is no big difference in price anyway, it’s better to buy something that only I can have. Also, the PC connection will be smoother than the existing Dual Shock.

‘Xbox Design Lab’ is a controller custom site provided by Xbox. Based on the Xbox series X|S controller (aka 4th generation), you can change the color of all elements attached to the controller exoskeleton to your liking, allowing you to create your own controller. Unlike elite controllers that can customize buttons and sensitivity, only ‘design’ can be set. Previously, the service was first provided in the United States, Canada, etc., but with the announcement of this expanded application, new designs were added, thereby expanding the range of options.

It’s not difficult to order a gamepad with the Xbox Design Lab. Enter the Xbox Design Lab site and set the colors of 9 buttons and sticks including body, rear, grip, bumper, trigger, directional pad, thumb stick, ABXY, view/menu/share, etc. The gamepad image on the left shows the expected result in real time to see what design will come out. The gamepad under design can be rotated from all sides, which makes it quite convenient to see the expected results.

The site said it would take about 28 days to receive it, but it was possible to receive it in 10 days. Immediately after receiving it, we tested it by connecting it to various devices such as mobile, PC, and iPad, and it showed no problem in operation. However, I think it will take some time to get used to the asymmetrical controller, probably because I switched to the Xbox gamepad after using the DualShock. Still, I naturally developed an attachment to it because it was a ‘my own’ design. The gamepad produced by the Xbox Design Lab also has the same performance and warranty period as the 4th generation of the general Xbox gamepad, so if you are interested, it would be good to take a look.
