Sea of Thieves’ official controller is pure pirate gold

Excited about Sea of Thieves coming to Xbox One and PC this March? Excited enough that you’re already putting together your pirate cosplay outfit for launch day and have a nearby kiddie pool filled with water to make any loved ones “walk the plank?” Well now you can fully accessorize with the pre-order of the official Sea of Thieves Xbox controller.

The controller will become available on February 15th and can be purchased for £64.99 or about $85. Sure, it’s pricey, but it does have a really neat glow-in-the-dark design (we particularly like the compass-style analog stick and the single gold “tooth” trigger) and is wireless. It can be used for both console and Windows 10 PCs.

Sure, it’s a bit of hardware fluff, but the existence of an official Sea of Thieves controller is yet another sign of how seriously Microsoft is taking the launch of this game by throwing its weight behind it. Smooth sailing ahead!

I used to be a huge fan of Rare in the N64 era, but ever since Microsoft purchased them they’ve been rather meh. I hope Sea of Thieves brings back their former glory.

I never understood the appeal of themed controllers – I always feel goofy when using them to play a diferent game than their theme. I wouldn’t spend more than (or even as much as) I would for a regular controller. More power to those who enjoy them, though.

0/5 – Would not buy. I pushed the analog stick up and instead of heading north my pirate walked forward, fell off the dock and drowned.

Saw this on MightyApe for pre-order and I have to say I really would love to get one, even more tempting after my misses has killed my Elite controller :(

Gushing over promotional things like this is silly, but +2 to whoever designed the thing for the compass and gold trigger choices (as Justin also pointed out).

Ouch that’s some expensive bauble.

Not convinced it looks very pirate-y although the compass-like…”thingie” on the left (I swear I don’t know how it’s actually called) is so classy <3

“Compass rose” is the term I often hear for it.

It’d be nice if they put this money back into development. I’ve played the alpha….

I guess this is what happens when you have money to burn. It’s a cute promotional thing and I’m sure somebody will pre-order them. Call me crazy but I think it would be nice if a studio with money to burn, actually gave financial grants to promising indie developers.
