Microsoft have announced a snazy looking red Xbox 360 controller that will hit stores on November the 7th...

Sure, it looks ok, but if they wanted "firey" and for it to really be a "hot little number" some groovy flames or something would have looked cooler :-)

Anyway, it will be in stores on November the 7th, the same day as Gears of War 2. Shane...

- - - - Press Release - - - -

Get ready to smoke your opponents on Xbox with the new fiery red Wireless Controller with added ‘go-faster’ black strip.
This hot little number will be winging its ways into stores just in time for the Australian sizzling summer.

Experience wireless gaming from up to 10 metres and enjoy uninterrupted play with the included Play & Charge cable and red rechargeable battery, which provides up to 25 hours of play on a single charge.

Additionally, when the battery runs low, you’re given ample warning so you can connect the included Play & Charge cable for continuous play.
Another great thing about the red controller is that you can pick it up on November 7th – Gears of War 2 Day. What better way to control your lancer in game than with this scorching controller!

The Xbox 360 Limited Edition Red Wireless Controller and Play & Charge Kit with red rechargeable battery now come together in a never before available color and is priced at AU$99.95 (RRP).

This product is the newest addition to Microsoft’s line of Xbox Authentic Products and further reinforces Microsoft’s commitment to enhancing the way people experience games and entertainment.

Yeh lol lets not forget how screwed we get when it comes to games and gaming peripherals. Im not sure about the red, the green one is crap aswell. I think if i were to stray from the white it would have to be a black controller.

Yeah the only controllers I have are white and black.

Yeah they're already out here.
I work at Best Buy currently and I see it every day, I'd love to pick one up because red and black is my favorite color combo. Plus my ex took my wireless black controller, grrr.

But that artical does hype it too much.
Plus I hate how they're advertising it as "Limited Edition", you know it won't be.

I don't see any point of buying a new one. Only the color has changed. Besides I can make my controller look cooler by buying those custom vinyls.

^^ It's not just the colour. It also has the improved D pad, apparently. Whatever that means.

That red controller is vile. The colour is bordering on Burgundy more than the bright red I'd prefer the controller to be :(

So we got it last month and you guys have to wait until next month? I swear, Australia gets screwed by the gaming industry. x_x

I saw a few of these on sale just yesterday. I may get one because one of my black controllers has a problem with a LB button :*(

Might pick one up as one of my two controllers has a sticky 'x' button. If I bugger it up trying to fix it, then I'll most likely have no other choice anyways. ;)

Is this the controller with the improved D-Pad?


If not, jesus that's one waste of money - look how ugly it is!

Don't like the look of it at all, horrible colour choice.

It looks...OK. But nothing beats the baby blue and baby pink controllers. I need to get me a pink one! My blue one is lonely.

@Luke19: You're from Nottingham? Damn first person I've seen on a forum who is actually close to where I live!

Well since Microsoft is American they needed red to go with the white and blue
Really: I dont see the point in all the different colors who cares if they are limited edition. I have four white ones and im fine with it. The only reason i might have different colored ones would be one color for each

Yeah we people in Australia get 'screwed' by the gaming industries and we get nearly everything late. I mean we get most games a couple of days later then the US or UK unless it's called Halo 3 or Gears of War 2.

Crimson Ridley

Why do they do that? I thought the UK was getting it bad but Australia gets it worse :(.

Still want to live there though, so much! :)
