Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER Limited Edition Wireless Controller + how to win one

Today we are announcing the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER Limited Edition Wireless Controller. I did a quick video (above) that shows a few of the features and laser etched details. I also posted more photos on my Flickr page as well.  The controller will be priced at US $59.99 (MSRP, check your local retailer for pricing) and be available world-wide when the game launches in March. Here is the official press release:

Experience Lara Croft’s First Adventure with the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDERLimited Edition Wireless Controller

 

At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today, Microsoft, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix unveiled the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDERLimited Edition Wireless Controller – the perfect commemorative companion marking Lara Croft’s return to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Developed in collaboration with artists at Crystal Dynamics, the design of the controller features a two-layer color finish with laser etching to create a realistic and tactile worn appearance inspired by Lara’s iconic climbing axe and the tourniquets that result from the adventure in her intense origin story, as told in this latest title. The controller also features a customizable D-pad that switches from a “plus” design to a “disc” pattern for better control, and a wireless range of up to 30-feet that allows for more freedom in your home environment as you explore and play the game.

In addition, those who purchase the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER Limited Edition Wireless Controller will receive a download token for an Xbox 360 exclusive playable TOMB RAIDER character. The controller will be available timed to the launch of the game worldwide and is priced at $59.99 (U.S. ERP).

    First — T-rex!

  • Bryan

    First one because it was the start of great series

  • http://twitter.com/CXK CXK

    I’m new to the Tomb Raider games but I’d have to say this next game is going to be my favorite. I’ve tried a few on the PS1 consoles. The new one looks great though!

  • Robert Ward

    My favorite is the first, my roommates and I all played it together watching the story unfold.

  • http://twitter.com/MattSTKC MattSTKC

    The new Tomb Raider, though not released, will probably be my favorite of the series. Takes it to the dark place that Lara Croft can and should go, and it’s grittier than you would expect. I’m excited for release day!

  • Dan Miran

    My favorite is going to be the one that’s coming out. I didn’t get to play the others but I’m really looking forward for the new one.

  • Tito Peixoto

    Surely Tomb Raider 1, fight a T-Rex is always pure epicness!

  • profeteer

    Anniversary, actually. New mechanics with the old school mainly lonely cave exploring.

    The original, loved using the whip.

    I cannot wait for the next tomb raider to come out I have seen the videos it looks amazing cannot wait to play it

  • http://twitter.com/deans6571 Dino

    Fave Tomb Raider game has to be TR:Underworld. Excellent graphics and the chance to play an ‘evil Lara’ in the 2nd half of the game.

  • http://twitter.com/G00DANG Thomas Gooding

    My personal favourite is Tomb Raider 2, the first of the series I played, and for some strange reason played the tutorial around the mansion far more than I did the campaign itself

  • http://twitter.com/KrAzYNo1 JU571N

    The first one. It was the beginning of a lot of great Adventures. :)

  • Dave Brown

    My favorite Tomb Raider is Tomb Raider on the Playstation because it was one of the first Playstation games I bought with my own money. I loved the controls and the fact that I could play around and learn the controls before getting into the main game. I also admit I had a lot of fun diving off the taller parts of the mansion and seeing how much damage I could do to Lara ;)

    My favorite tomb raider game is the very first one. Simply because it some of it takes place in Peru. What can I say I’m biased.

  • Matt Jagusch

    My favorite is Guardian of Light. Liked the twist on Tomb Raider. Really looking forward to the new game! Thanks as always.

  • Hyroll

    Fitst tomb raider, dual uzis and pistols like a boss.

    @CoryProc

  • http://twitter.com/iGrift Carlos

    the first one because it introduced such a great character

  • Tom002

    I liked the first one, mainly because its the only one I spent much time playing.

  • http://twitter.com/Trystus Johnathan Liu

    My favorite is the one I played when I was a young child. I don’t even remember which it is. I only recall that it was N64 era graphics

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adrian-Wolf/1163391478 Adrian Wolf

    First tomb raider is my favorite. It was the first game after mario that I could play with my mom. She would always ask for help in the jump/climbing sections lol.

  • JamAhoyy

    I’d have to agree with anyone saying the first game, simply because I fondly remember it as I was growing up… Changing from a game I could barely to play to eventually finishing it as I got older… Good memories. A close second for me would be the actual second game, simply because locking Winston in the freezer was just too good :D He was so annoying ¬.¬

  • http://twitter.com/Xync_ Damian

    I love the first Tomb Raider because it’s the one that started a great franchise that’s still alive today.

  • http://twitter.com/Atoso Si hombre

    Best tomb raider for me, was guardian of light, coop mode was really funny.

  • http://twitter.com/adrianjesse magnitize

    I would have to say the second one. We would play that for hours trying to figure it out nightly.

    Fav Tomb Raider: The first one. Why? T-REX… Enough said.

  • http://twitter.com/kevinpatterson Kevin Patterson

    My favorite Tomb Raider was the first one. I remember getting it for Sega Saturn, and when I’d come home after school, I’d sit down with my dad and we’d take turns solving some of the puzzles. It was the first game we played together since the Mario games on NES.

    Tomb Raider I since it was so different from all the other games in its time.

  • http://twitter.com/queenrangel Queen Rangel

    The first one just changed the way I feel about thinking games.

  • http://twitter.com/ArcSphere Daniel Edgar

    My favorite tomb raider is Tomb Raider: Legend. I felt it got the series back on track.

  • Guest

    I guess I’d say the first one, mainly because it’s the only one I’ve played. I keep meaning to get the new ones, and it just never happens.

  • http://twitter.com/jaimeponcem Jaime Ponce

    I really like the first one… ’cause there was where adventure start..

  • ghostspider

    My fav is the first one, it was such a fresh new experience, i;d love to go back and play it with fresh eyes again.

  • DrCalypso

    My favourite tomb raider game has to be the initial tomb raider. It was something totally new, and i still remember me and a friend sitting in front of his fathers pc, fighting our way through dangerous Terrains as lara Croft.
    Fond memories.

  • Tyler

    My favorite game had to be the first Tomb Raider. It was the first time I have ever played a game like this one. It changed the way I see video games and set the standard for adventure games. I am so excited to see this new entry into the series. I hope it brings in new fans! Twitter name @jtylergreene

  • http://twitter.com/Carpe_Tenebrae Carpe Tenebrae

    I guess I’d have to say the first one, since I think it’s the only one I’ve played. I keep meaning to pick up the new ones, since they seem interesting, but I always have too many games to play and end up pushing off getting a new Tomb Raider!

  • Joel Chavarria

    My favorite would be the original one that came out for Sega Saturn, the story plot for it was a good way to start a game and a good way to make sure there would be more to come. Also to put a female lead on a game plus one who is bad a** :) Its a game that will always be a fun game to play and really never gets old. No one has never really seen a 3-d type of genre game before which was huge back in the 90′s.

    Thanks for the chance of winning one of those bad boys!

  • http://twitter.com/iloveslickdeals Bobby Hill

    My Favorite Games is TR2 Great Story, Great Enemies and and a great atmosphere

  • http://twitter.com/rahulricky Rahul Ricky

    easily Tomb Raider GOL, the co-op was so good. Most fun I’ve had in co-op ever probably.

  • http://www.facebook.com/laughatjimmy Jimmy Turner

    I actually loved the XBL Arcade one, because my son and I were able to play through it together, and any game that allows my son and I to team up and NOT allow me to suffer a humiliating loss to him is alright by me! :)

  • casey hankins

    My favorite tomb raider game was the original, because it was the first game i bought with my new computer, my first real pc game purchase.

  • http://twitter.com/schattenkonig58 Elyakim Hoshea

    The upcoming one ,why because of the oh so sweet looking graphics. :P
