The Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition Xbox One X and controller are available now. The Cyberpunk 2077 controller is actually inspired by Johnny Silverhand’s arm. Johnny is played by none other than Keanu Reeves. In a recent video, CDPR talked about the controller and how it was inspired by Johnny Silverhand.
Johnny Silverhand’s arm is actually made by Arasaka, which is ironic because it is the corporation that he hates so much. That is why we see the Arasaka branding on the silver side of the controller. CDPR mentioned that Johnny Silverhand did something to change the status quo and then disappeared but his legend lives on.
We know that he plays an active part in Cyberpunk 2077 and the player can see him because of a mysterious chip. Johnny’s arm is chrome and that is why the base of the thumbstick is red but the top is silver. On the back of the controller, you have the Samurai logo. Samurai is the band and Johnny happens to be a member of that band.
CDPR teased that right now the connection between the console design and the controller might not make sense but once players start playing Cyberpunk 2077 they will see the connection and how it makes sense.
While the limited edition Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X looks great, getting one might not be worth it for most people keeping in mind that the Xbox Series X is coming out a few weeks after the release of the game. Then again this is a limited edition console and mostly collectors are going to be interested in buying one.
This is most likely a way in which Microsoft can sell the stock of Xbox One X units that they have. Interestingly, the console also comes with a colored HDMI cable and this is the first time that Microsoft has done something of the sort.
