    The first custom Xbox One controllers made with the Xbox Design Lab are now shipping to the public, Microsoft has announced. Microsoft sent out the very first orders on Friday, August 26. They should arrive in early September, with more units to follow after that.

    The company said in an Xbox Wire statement that it's seen a "tremendous amount of interest and excitement" in the personalized controllers since it opened the Xbox Design Lab store back in June.

    You can choose the color of the controller's bumpers, triggers, D-pad, thumbsticks, ABXY buttons, and view and menu buttons, among other things. According to Microsoft, there are 8 million color combinations. The personalized controllers sell for $80, while you can pay an extra $10 to have your gamertag or some other name or message engraved on the controller, up to 16 characters in length.

    Controllers are handmade and should ship 14 business days after sending in an order. Right now, the service is only offered in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico, but Microsoft said it will make the Xbox Design Lab available to people in other markets in 2017.

    These are the new Xbox One controllers, featuring Bluetooth and textured grips. They work with the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and PC.

    You can go to the Xbox Design Lab website to make your own controller now. GameSpot made one and you can watch us unbox it in the video above. The non-personalized pads normally go for around $50.

    Microsoft is the only platform-holder with an official design-your-own controller program.
