Look! Shiny new controllers to bling out your Xbox 360

Crunk

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that your matte black or – gasp! White, you peasant! – Xbox 360 controller just. isn’t. shiny. enough. Ok, most of you probably weren’t – but for the handful of you that want more bling in your hands, Microsoft has you covered.

The company’s announced a series of shiny new chromed out controllers for those who like to accessorise.

Available in Blue, Red and Silver the shiny new controllers feature the infinitely better, transforming d-pad that debuted in 2010, which we reviewed, rather hilariously,  here.

According to Major Nelson, the new controllers will come in at a $5 premium over the cost of the regular, boring controller – so expect it to be available for around R600. For those of you paying attention – these aren’t the only shiny Xbox controllers available – but if you want the gold, C3PO styled one you’ll have to fork out for the admittedly sexy limited Star Wars edition of the Xbox – or try your hand at winning one, by flexing your poetic muscles.

I personally prefer my tech to be matte – but I know a lot of folks dig shiny stuff.

Would you buy one of these controllers?

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
