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).


Available beginning March 5, 2013, built from the ground up for the Xbox 360 and featuring add-on content which will be available first on the platform, TOMB RAIDER explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold. In the all-new TOMB RAIDER a survivor is born.

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


  • 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.


  • Queen Rangel

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


  • 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.


  • 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.

    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


  • 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!

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


  • Rahul Ricky

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


  • 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.


  • Elyakim Hoshea

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