While there are other ways of getting your controllers redesigned, none are as easy as doing it from Microsoft’s own site. It’s super easy, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself holding your new custom-made controller. The main site of Microsoft has a section called Xbox Design Lab, and that’s where players can customize their controllers.
