It looks like the rumours and leaks were correct and a new Xbox One controller has been in the works, albeit with some minor conservative changes. We aren’t sure whether this is the controller alluded to in the leaks but it is an official Xbox One controller so the chances are high that this is it. The main new addition appears to be the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack similar to the DS4 controller for the PlayStation 4. Dubbed ‘Covert  Forces’ the new controller does look pretty much the same minus the new paint job:

[UPDATE]– It appears that the controller is pretty much identical barring the inclusion of the headphone jack and new colour scheme. Looking at the technical specs suggests this too:

    So no volume controls? LOL, the previous adapter is still a more useful solution then.

        That’s what I’m thinking. I personally would have the options in the menu that opens when you double-tap the home button. They should have at least added a “shift” button somewhere, then assign the different volume and mute options to the face buttons and d-pad though.
