The Xbox One Wireless Controller will cost $59.99 in the US, a listing on the Microsoft Store has revealed.

This means the new console's pad is priced at a $10 premium over the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. Likewise, the controller plus Play and Charge kit bundle is priced $10 dearer than the Xbox 360 set, asking consumers to pay $74.99.

Those wanting the official Microsoft Wired Headset will need to pay $24.99, according to the store.

No UK pricing has been announced, but the UK Microsoft Store asks £34.99 for the regular Wireless Controller, suggesting a £40-£45 price tag on the Xbox One pad.

Xbox One will launch in November priced £429.99.

The PS4's DualShock 4 is also priced at $59.99 in the US, with the UK RRP confirmed at £54. Xbox fans will be hoping Microsoft's currency conversion is more generous to gamers in the UK.

That's what happens when you cram more tech in.
In this particular case, those impulse triggers.

It's just a shame that ever since analogue controllers took over, they've all had a notably finite lifespan when you start noticing the stick has become loose and games will start to drift on their own, especially if their dead-zone is set too tightly (Mass Effect 2 and Crysis 2 were notable for this).

You also never know if one is going to be 100% right until you've opened the packet. I had one Xbox 360 controller with a duff vibration motor which was only fixed by swapping it out with an older one.
Analogue triggers can also be very hit and miss. I had a Dreamcast controller where one of the triggers was very literally off/on.

Controllers haven't been £30 for a long time. Even a Wii-mote with nun-chuck will set you back more than that!

That's terrible, IMO a controller shouldn't be any more than £30.

Amazon.co.uk are placeholding the XBox One controller at £89.99

On the plus side they're charging the same price if you want the controller with a play and charge pack.
