Limited Edition Xbox 360 Wireless Controller and Play and Charge kit



Wireless & Quick Charge Kit
In case you missed it, Xbox 360 has teamed up with GameStop to design an exclusive limited edition Wireless Controller that will be available next week.  Bundled with a Play & Charge Kit, the controller features a new design which sports black carbon fiber with red accents.  This controller will be sold exclusively at GameStop, EB Games and Micromania retailers in the U.S., Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, Denmark, Finland, Austria, Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, Australia and New Zealand. 

The suggested retail price will be US $69.99, and you can place your pre-order here. I’ve uploaded some high resolution photos of the bundle if you want a closer look.

    it looks like one of those Honda Civics that that all high school kids have in my town. Half spray paint half fake carbon fiber. Ugly. Not to mention those stupid recharge kit things die…

  • doomsoth

    lol That looks awful!

  • GoldenRok

    I actually don’t mind that this isn’t available in the UK, our store shelves are filled with enough ugliness as it is.

    I’d happily purchase an all black carbon-fibre edition but that red is just plain wrong.


    Worst Controller Design Ever!

    Looks like it was designed by a blind guy…

  • Leksman

    Hmm.. Not bad but could be better)


    Wow theres ugly and then theres this controller…….. MS fire the guy/girl who comes up with the artwork for your accessories seriously.


    Another thing….. saying the word ‘LIMITED’ in the front of the product name doesn’t mean its worth the price point. Gamers are not mindless drones who get tricked this easily.

  • drudaddy

    Sorry for saying this but, the design sucks it needs to go back to the drawing board.

  • UnarmedGorilla

    @MADEIRA STEVE88 They are probably marketing this overpriced fugly piece of garbage to those same “mindless drones” that have actually paid real $$$ for virtual crap from the avatar marketplace. There will always be someone stupid enough that will shell out for something that has the word ‘limited’ in front of it… even though you’ll probably be able to find in a bargain bin or on ebay for <$5 in a couple of years.

  • Just2Lazzzy

    Not coming to UK then? Why is gamestop not in UK? Think it would do well in England. Anyways* after looking at the controller. I’m not so into this design! Maybe if they come up with another exclusive design.

  • UKresistance

    Is it Sooooo hard to make an attractive looking controller? Why bother making one that looks like crap? Is ugly cheaper to manufacture?

  • Major Sirius

    It’s just fugly!

  • Woodlandbunny

    I like it. It reminds me of Resident Evil’s Umbrella logo. Shame it’s not available in the UK.

  • lmfans

    I think this controller is quite ugly. If they want something nice, please allow capcom to produce one with SF4 or RE5 theme. Thanks.

  • Twilight Miasma

    Who the hell would want to buy that ugly ass controller! /vomit

  • EveofLight

    Black and red are my favorite colors, especially together…but the design on this controller is looking all sorts of wrong O_o….

  • the new easy

    If I saw any of my friends with that controller I would have to delete them from my friends list (on XBL and in real life).

    lmao @ all the comments about this thing

  • Anonymous

    oh joy no uk, when there are gamestops here.


    Awesome controller + play & charge! too bad we don’t have Gamestop here!

  • AIaskanGrown

    is the new controller radio active?

  • Assassinator010

    What an ugly remote….Whoever designed it must of been on drugs.

  • MAJBrown

    That is easily the ugliest thing I’ve ever seen. Why can’t they release a normal black or white controller with this bundle?

  • Beasty Drummer

    The red makes it hideous. You guys should have made it all Carbon Fiber. Now that would look cool.


    @ UnarmedGorilla agree with you entirely.

  • Honeycut1

    That looks terrible

  • hollywood79

    Actually, I kinda like this controller. It is pretty funky looking. I know the price $69.99 seems a bit steep but you have to consider that not only are you getting a controller but a rechargeable unit along with it. It’s a good deal IMO.

    Visit my online shop for new release video games & much more.


    I like it, might buy it

  • Logic Squirrel

    Um…. not worth the price tag, also that unholy creation is real ugly.

  • SamF2000

    Not really crazy about the Colors, kinda ugly IMO. Besides that I still can’t understand how these accesories are so expensive. Even with the plug n play charger $70 is crazy price. How about changing colors to Silver and black and making the price for the controller $20????

  • Vasilii Zaytsev

    Coming up on the four year anniversary, but the D-pad is still broken. *sigh*

  • simon zephyr

    d-pad fixed yet?

  • SkinnerY2K

    I wouldn;t buy this.

    Give it a month and Microsoft will be banning all non Microsoft controllers like they are with the hard drives

  • RidinSlow

    Here are 2 Controller + Play-n-Charge kit packages that start at $15 lower than this bundle:



    Unless you are really into this design, there really is no savings or reason to go for it.

    Isn’t it about time Microsoft releases a controller with a rechargeable battery built into the controller and drop the price of the current controllers by like…$10?

  • Wulf684

    I for one thinks this is an awesome design. I totally dig the radioactive sign.
    Too bad this is not available in the Netherlands… eBay, here I come!

  • doyouheuyahoo

    Yeah great ! Something for european gamers :)

    Errr… A controller for $70 ? So you mean €70 ?

    Ok no thank you :)

  • RockNBurn

    No Brazil love? Come on major…
    BTW, when do we get a brazilian Live?

  • CLEV3R1

    I gotta say, that is one ugly controller, is that really the best they can come up with?

  • RockNBurn

    @SIRIUS L3G3ND: The car paint finish is kind of sexy =d

  • DeusExMathias

    Personally, I like the design – it does look like an Umbrella Corp. logo – and I need a new controller as my daughter dropped my black elite and now the B button has almost no resistance to it anymore. I don’t, however, need another Play & Charge kit. I’m not shelling out $70. :'(
