Xbox 360 camo controller revealed

$55 controller exclusive to Wal-Mart to be available beginning in May.

by

Microsoft today announced a new special edition camouflage wireless Xbox 360 controller. The new input, which features the updated transforming D-pad, will launch exclusively at Wal-Mart in May for $55.

The new controller will be available outside of the United States in "select" regions also in May. Pricing and specific region availability for international markets was not divulged.

The latest Xbox 360 controller update was the Tomb Raider-themed input, which launched earlier this month to coincide with the launch of the Crystal Dynamics franchise reboot.

Unless you have an army uniform and long ass grass in the yard, I don't see the point of having one

Mossy Oak or Real Tree, if not I ain't buyin'! lol  That's the stupidest looking controller I've seen since, well, yeah it's just that stupid looking. And of course Wal-Mart would lock it down. Good ol' Wal-Mart.

So you want me to buy a controller for $50, that offers nothing more than a color addition, from a retailer I barely go to (let alone do my game shopping there), for a console I already have controllers for, with said consoles replacement coming soon, in "select regions?"  This is a worse marketing idea than the Wii Mini.  I'm glad I'm mainly a PS3 player.

Why would you get a controller now? New Xbox/PS4 in a few months . . .

Too much work involved for a controller like this. Plugging it in, moving all the pot plants in the house around the playing area so that there is an actual point to using it, etc...

I didn't realise Xbox players need to hide from their TV.

And we're suppose to be duped into buying this cash-vac when the next gen console is on the horizon....why?

is there a wired version?

also, instead of updating the d-pad, how about you update the analog sticks that wear out in 6 months...

I love the idea of having a camo controller. I have one for the PS3, it's a Mad Catz Modern Warfare 2 controller, but why the hell is it exclusive to Wal Mart?! They're one of the most evil corporations in the world and overall just plain suck!!

WHY THE HELL A CONTROLLER IS SO FREAKIN EXPENSIVE..

lilcurt1978
lilcurt1978

my question is why do these controllers cost so much I mean the gaming systems are close to 10 years old. why are the controllers and or parts still costing so much money. I still have my original that is pretty much scene it days of fun . but I refuse to buy another one sense this is it for this gen.

@Diamondsoulz 95% of  all electronic comes from china. The quality of the stock depends on how much they pay the Assembler. eg Apple pays for high standard and Acer pays less and get crap standard

@brdeftone @Jebril I am kinda redneck myself, it wasn't meant to be insulting just stating how it is. Rednecks love camo and they go to Wal-Mart a lot and play Xbox. :|
