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.

    Never mind throwing paint at controllers and hoping for the best, have you fixed the d-pad yet?

    Wireless Controller ($49.99) + Play and Charge Kit ($19.99)= $69.98, so if you are griping about the .01 increase being “not worth it” you have issues. Now if you really wanted to complain you could bring up that the Red or Black combo pack is $64.99 ($5 difference), or that the Wal Mart “Dragon” controller is $49.99 and comes with a headset…but I like this one, as it goes well with either my RE5 console or my Black Elite with the Carbon Fiber faceplate!

    Looks kind of like a resident evil umbrella logo. Pass for me, I’m good on controllers.

    Gamestop and the Microsoft rep who created this must have been color blind or have no sens eof creativity

    No, sorry far too ugly. Now if there was one which was just black carbon-fibre, _that_ would be cool.

    It’s OKAY. I’d still buy it, though you could get a cheaper bundle on Amazon.

    @formulaH3o … i don’t think arty/abstract applies since it’s a radiation warning symbol.

    If they fix the D-pad and lose the red biohazard logo I’d be interested. Mostly if Microsoft could just fix the terrible D-pad.

    That is… truly horredous on the eyes. *UGH*

    To be fair, I should just say that it’s just not for me. Although the design itself is fine, and the texture-look extremely nice, the color scheme just doesn’ work (which is strange, since red and black usually complement each other nicely.) The real problem here is simply that the overall look is TOO DSTRACTING — we don’t want to be blinded or dazed by our controllers while playing.

    For example, I’d LOVE a controller with this carbon fiber texturing if it was a solid DEEP BLUE color… not a Fisher Price Toy plastic blue, but a really nice deep blue with a velvety quality to it (for example, similar to the Island Blue PS2 controllers that were released). Now THIS would be a stunner.

    I also wish that GameStop would be allowed to sell additional separate packages of the “exclusive” green Halo: ODST controllers. I really wanted one of those — more specifically, I really wanted the entire Game + Controller bundle — but I was too late and unable to obtain it (I’m chronically ill/disabled with a rare genetic disease, and it’s difficult to do preordering when undergoing spinal surgeries and recoveries). Anyway, Major, if you could “suggest” to the power-that-be to reissue this, I would be eternally grateful. (Yes folks, I know this is wishful thinking… so I wishing…!)

    Love it or hate it with the color scheme/design, eh? I’ll choose the latter, as it looks like a pair of NFL zubaz pants.

    I love the awesome bargain that is the Walmart art controller. It looks great, too, but I want you to bring back the pink and blue, please.

    I actually like the colors quite a bit. Gives of a Resident Evil-ish appearance. However, I bought 4 MS Wireless Controllers over the summer for $9 each brand new, so I have no need for a new one. Hell, 3 of those are still sealed.🙂
