Rejected LE Controller Designs... Much Better Than What Were Getting!

Hey folks,

I've just seen this post over on Facebook from Xbox UK and they've posted a picture of the rejected LE Controller Designs...

I personally think all of them are better than the design they ended deciding on. I would of dropped my Ģ40 on the controller if they decided on the Puzzle Design.

The rejected designs look waaaaay better than what we have now. Not a good decision on their part.

And the Classic Lara version... oh my. >.>

If those legitimately were designs that were rejected, and not just something some fan came up with, the right decision was made. The rejected ones all look awful, while the chosen one actually fits in with the game! And there is absolutely no way the classic Lara one would have gotten approved anyway. I kind of doubt Microsoft would approve a design that had you effectively playing with her nipples.

Relics and Puzzles have been a staple of the Tomb Raider world/universe since Tomb Raider so I don't see how they don't fit in with the game.... And yes they're legitimate designs, the picture was posted by Xbox UK on their Facebook page. Its not a Fan made page.

I can see why the Classic Lara one wouldn't have been approved but the others are good looking designs which fit in more than a bandage around one of the grips imo.

Any one would be fine. At the end of the day, the controller is not going to be used anyway.

3-4 of games achievements are tied to finding Relics, so yes relics are still a staple of the TR franchise and I will state my life on it that there are tombs and puzzles in this game. Tomb Raider wouldn't be tomb raider if they got rid of the puzzles and tombs. So again the designs fit perfectly with the game.. Just saying.

Of course, the relics are nothing like what they've been like in previous games. They aren't fancy, bejeweled, shiny objects. They're real-world archeological artifacts. For example, one is a mortar and pestle. Not exactly the kind of thing the relic controller reflects.

And don't expect the puzzles to be elaborate mechanisms a la previous games (in the style of the controller) either. Again, the game is more real-world than previous titles, and those complex cog mechanisms are a thing of fantasy, not reality.

So again, for past TR games those controllers may have worked, but not this one. The designs were rejected for a reason.

While it has little to do with the game as far as I can tell I like the relic one for how it looks. Would probably get it just as a controller.

I'm not sure if I get what is going on with the puzzle controller, why is the right joystick detached? and what is with the other gear?

And the Classic Lara is just silly.

The puzzle one looks like that steampunk modified controller that's been making the rounds.

The puzzle ones best. The main one just looks like the LE red chrome controller with a few scratches and a bandage attached to it lol not impressed.

Classic Lara controller is pretty funny
I agree with what you said about the puzzle design and I would also be more inclined to dish out Ģ40 if they decided to pick that one. I don't want to spend so much on a control that looks battered and fixed with tape.

I actually like the red and white controller......but that's because I am a huge Van Halen fan and the controller reminds me of Eddie's 5150 Frankenstein guitar. I fixed up my GH Les Paul to look the same.

The puzzle one has no sort of connection to Tomb Raider. Would be good for another game. (I see that i think Little Big Planet). The relic look way too bright and silly. The classic suit also looks silly. I dont even like the one they chose. I would have prefered a logo or a side on view of lara on one side. Like the cover of the box art.

None of these designs really fit the game at all. I think they could have done way better. The rejected designs seem really fake to me. The game has no relics or puzzles like this. If anything that's probably why they got rejected because while they might have fit other tomb raiders they don't fit this one. They should have made it look like one of the ghost hunter decorations
Spoiler! (click here to reveal)
or any of the other actual relics the game contains.

They are all okay. I noticed the relic one had a pink Xbox button which is kind of cool. Wonder why they don't use different LED lights.

Gamers clearly have awful taste. I don't know who voted for a beat up controller with tape painted on the handle when that amazing Puzzle controller was an option. Take your controller outside, scrape it along the ground, spray paint it red, tape it and have yourself a legit version of that piece. Give me something that looks like it's worth sixty dollars, not something that a pawn shop wouldn't pay six dollars for.

Edit: I saw this at Gamestop today and it doesn't look nearly as good as the pictures of it online.

These drawings dont do them justice though. The option they went for does look really good IRL.

Out of the rejected ones, I like the Original Lara one. Not because its particularly pretty, but it reminds me of TR the most.
