Xbox 360 Controllers: Now Available in Two Tasty New Colors!




In terms of Xbox 360 controllers, so far we’ve had the classic white, the slick black, and even the two recently released Halo 3-themed pads. If none of those colors suit your interest, then you’ll be thrilled to know that Microsoft has two new Xbox 360 controller colors in the works: blue and pink.

Set for an October 10th retail release and available for the standard wireless Xbox 360 controller price of $49.99, I have to say that I’m a bit disappointed in how these new pads turned out. The colored pads for the original Xbox were far superior in terms of design. Although those were only released in blue and green, they had a very stylish see-through design. These, on the other hand….well, take a look at the colorful pics and decide for yourself.

Hopefully we’ll get more special edition pads in the future…. Although I’m not too found of the two new ones coming out, I’m usually a sucker for these things (provided I can get a good deal on them).

How heavy are these controllers? Are they as light as the PS 3 controllers? Are they lighter than the original 360 controllers?

Gnome, perhaps they've abandoned the good ol' green of the original Xbox?

Elderly, I'm not quite sure what the hell they were thinking, but I must admit that the Halo controllers are mighty cool. I actually have special edition Street Fighter (PS2) and Mega Man X (GC) controllers, and they're awesome looking as well. And even though they're third party, they perform great.

Funnyman, I'd assume they're the same weight as the original 360 controllers.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
