Microsoft is going to unveil a new Xbox One controller along with other hardware at E3 in June, says a report.

Blogger Brad Sams reveals the news via Paul Thurrot's blog on April 27, citing its sources inside the company.

Reportedly, the new standard controller is going to look akin to the present design, but will sport a new color.

"Considering that Microsoft currently ships a black controller, a white default design seems like a decent mid-cycle refresh for the console to help spur sales," says Sams.

Apart from the updated standard controller, Microsoft may also be working on a new device that seems to take on the purported PS4K. Sams says the company is geared up to announce "much larger" related gaming console at the upcoming event.

He goes on to say that he is not sure if this new hardware is going to be an update to the recently unwrapped Elite bundle or something brand new.

To date, the Xbox One Elite model carries a $500 price tag, although it is marked down to $450 for a limited time only. It comes loaded with 1 TB solid state hybrid, making the system boot up to 20 percent faster as opposed to the regular version.

That's not all. The report also says the company could discuss its efforts to more deeply link Windows 10 and Xbox One, in a bid to extend the features that are included in these two platforms.

This is said to be part of the firm's effort to further boost the ecosystem to produce unique experiences for players and to stand out from the competition.

Earlier, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that the company is set to discuss things "beyond" Windows 10 and Xbox One in the succeeding weeks and months that somehow corroborates to this latest news.

Tech Times earlier reported about a rumor circulating on the Web, suggesting that Microsoft may be prototyping its new Xbox consoles.

The speculation originated from The Verge's report, saying Microsoft has been testing a multitude of Xbox prototypes. The report also says some of these prototype Xbox devices have been tested out with upgraded parts similar to what would be used in improving a PC gaming machine.
