The images of a gamepad by itself show a large UNSC logo on the left half. This is an amazing touch. I also like the glass case, which gives it a "meaningless entertainment award" touch. The controllers will cost $60 apiece.

I don't like it as much as the Halo 4 one.

Personally I find this one to look much better than the Halo 4 console bundle thing. That one looks like it has paint spilled on it while this one actually looks like something that makes sense.

Looks really nice. I might consider buying it since it would go well with my Reach controller :) (Need a new one anyway since my white controller broke.).

I'm in the same boat. Have a 2nd controller which is busted. Since I have and want to buy a new controller anyways, I'm going to purchase this one :)

Oh man, that's sweet. I have the Reach one that I love, use it all the time. This should make a nice addition!

I do believe I'm gonna be trading my controller in right now and getting this one, I need a new controller as it is and this one looks sick!

I made a mistake and didn't put that, this controller is coming out close to the same time the halo 4 console comes out.

I only like the fact that the xbox home button is blue as well.

Just a heads up to anybody that was wanting this controller. I went in to Gamestop to pay off the rest of my Halo 4 swag and they actually had this controller in stock behind the counter. I paid it off and they actually let me take it home today. Apparently the controller is not bound by a street-date release, so if you pre-ordered this or want one in general, check your local retailers. They might have it in stock.

Damn, I have mine preordered on Amazon:/ I won't be getting mine until next Wednesday. It looks so slick.

Well it's about time. They only pushed it's release date back 4 times. Of course the store I ordered mine at doesn't have it yet... *sigh* maybe tomorrow.

Will this match the LE Console, or is it meant for those not getting the console? The Halo 4 console controllers look alright, but I kind of prefer this one to those.

The Halo 4 Console comes with 2 of the blue-ringed H4 controllers. This is the standalone controller, yes. I haven't really looked at the Console controllers yet, but I know the UNSC controller is the most up-to-date model with the twistable D-Pad converter. Otherwise it's pretty ordinary as far as I can tell.

The console & the controllers that come with it are a clearish smoke grey plastic with forerunner iconography. This controller (obviously) has the UNSC logo but is still the same clearish smoke grey. If you look at the right side of the controller in the picture in the OP you can see the vibration rotor and weight, as well as the board the buttons sit on. Both controllers have the new switchable dpad. So, while it's not identical to the ones with the console, it is meant to go with them stylistically.

At least this one has an Eagle and "UNSC" while the one bundled with the console is just a bunch of lines.

Yeah, the Console Bundle controllers aren't that nice compared to the others. I like the color scheme of the Console ones but not the design.

The ones that come with the console weren't meant to have an Eagle or any UNSC imagery on it; the Halo 4 Console is supposed to envision Forerunner tech, hence the "bunch of lines". I imagine the ones arriving with the console relate more to the game than the UNSC one, considering the nature of Halo 4's campaign.

OT: Is the home-button LEDs of the UNSC Controller blue?

Yes! This made me instantly pre-order two of them.

I agree, the other styled one that comes with the console looks cooler.

You know, even with the pictures on the web showing blue lights I actually wasn't expecting them to BE blue. But I finally got mine today and damned if they aren't. I'm even happier to have this now. :)

Nobody on this thread mentioned that it has the new switchable d-pad (although I suppose it HAS become standard on all the controllers now).
I'm not really sure how I feel about that though. I feel like my GOW controller d-pad broke really fast. One day it was responsive and had a tactile click and now it seems "different" - in a bad way.

But I really like the look of it, and the blue LED effects my opinion WAY more than it should.


I'm really surprised this doesn't come with a downloadable code for an armor or something

I mentioned it, but I might also just be starstruck because I still don't have a controller with that feature. So happy having one now. DOA5 is playable again ^_^

Yeah, I wish it had come with a code for armor. Same with the Headsets. I'm doing everything I can to get every unique code possible without buy the same item repetitively. Must bolster my Ebay auction! lol

Btw, Canadians can get the Future Shop exclusive Steelbook for free if they also pre-order the Limited Edition standalone controller:

My overall obsession with Halo and getting everything I can for it. Like just the other day I payed $100 for a replica of the Halo 4 pistol. And now I'm currently looking to get my hands on a suit of MJOLNIR armor (BTW, if anybody is selling a set, I'm in the market :D)

There I go again. lol

A Canadian friend of mine told me that they've gradually moved away from bagged milk, and have been for some time now. Instead, they now have a separate tap near their sink that dispenses milk. You can even determine how much % fat you want in your milk by sliding a lever. Sounds pretty neato.

If it's a joke then LOL, if not, then your Canadian friend totally lied to you.

The Avatar T-Shirt that comes with the controller is pretty cool IMO. It's black with a white UNSC eagle logo, the same that's on the controller. Beats the t-shirt with the 4 on the front all to hell.
