Tomb Raider Limited Edition Xbox 360 Controller Unearthed

View author's profile

Microsoft, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have revealed the Limited Edition Tomb Raider wireless Xbox 360 controller, designed in collaboration with artists from the Tomb Raider developer, with a two-layer colour finish and laser etching.

Sporting a "realistic and tactile worn appearance", the controller is designed to look like one of the tools that Lara Croft will utilise in her latest adventure, and is inspired by the climbing axe and tourniquets she'll rely on in her fight for survival.

Priced at £39.99 in the UK, the Tomb Raider Limited Edition wireless Xbox 360 controller will have one of them adjustable d-pads, and it'll be bundled with a DLC code for a downloadable multiplayer character, the devious Scavenger Archer, exclusively at GAME. The controller will be available alongside Tomb Raider when it launches on March 5th, 2013.

Look! Pictures!

Not bad, but not overly inpressed. It just looks mostly beat up. Still love Tomb Raider though! :)

Alright that thing looks pretty cool but I think it's funny that we'll pay a premium to buy a controller that looks like the one you would probably be replacing.

All those limited edition controllers are not bad from MS but i prefer mine from Madcats and then i aiming at those great Ghost Recon controller with the pistol grip like sides, even if your sweating alot in your hands you still remain control over your controller. Thats why i prefer them. But def not a bad look tho :)

So it's a controller that's already made to look worn out and shitty? This is just as dumb as those pants stores sell that already have holes pre-ripped in them.

Since I already own 3 normal controllers and a shifting d-pad one I'll pass on this. It looks pretty cool although a little too beat up.

Why do they not do a game/controller combo ? If they did that I would deff snap this up since it would have a little saving in it. Or a collectors edition and controller.

One of the worst LE controllers they have made, its basically just a red controller with scratches and black fingerprints, i could do the same thing with a pair of scissors and some black paint.

hmm I like the looks of this, I wouldn't mind owning own of these, but this late I don't think I will bother. I already have 2 black, 2 pink and a turbo controller so I will have to pass.

Maybe if they did a game/controller combo like #28 said, that would be a great idea.

I like limited edition controllers (I own Halo: ODST, Halo: Reach, MW3, and GOW3 controllers), but I certainly won't be getting this one, just like Halo 4 one... it's so ugly...

I have a controller just like that. I doesn't have that small logo and because it's white, we can't see the scratches very well.
I mod alot of those while playing CoD: WaW campaign's on Veteran, or when playing L4D2 on Expert with the Realism mode enabled.

As much as a Tomb Raider fan I am, I'm not intrested in this. This pad wouldn't look too good with my black chatpad attached to it which I always have to have attached to my controllers when I play. I've become so accustomed to the added weight and heft the chatpad provides that when I try to game with just the controller it doesn't feel right. Not as bad as that POS Sony Dual Shock3 but I just like the added feel the chatpad provides.

I'll be picking up a normal black wireless pad with the new transforming d pad instead..

Shame its got one of those rubbish twisting d-pads ... which imo are way worse than the original. Way too clicky and loose and not as responsive for 2D games.
And I've used many before everyone jumps to their defence ...

The two palm grips should have been boobs.

Looking forward to Tomb Raider, but don't really need a controller (I have 3 for some reason).

Been replaying some bits of Legend, Underworld and Anniversary. Forgot just how damn good Tomb Raider really is. Looking forward to this revamp.

"The left bit with brown stripes"

Those arent brown stripes, thats a tourniquet, wrapped around the controller. A tourniquet is a medical device used to try and stop or slow bleeding.


How does that controller have anything to do with Tomb Raider? Did you read the article?

I would most definitely get this if i didnt already have 7 or 8 controllers(acquired over the last 7 years). I personally like the new dpad, and I like this controller.

If I want a controller like this I will scrape it across the cement a few times, step on it with my dirty shoes and then wrap some tape around it.

IMO the best limited ed. controllers have been the GoW3 and Halo 4 pads. This one I agree with the others in saying it doesn't really represent Tomb Raider as much as they thought it would. At least not to ppl who weren't involved in making the new game.

I'd LOVE a Bioshock Infinite LE Controller! I bet it'd look sooo sweet, possibly all steampunk-ish! :D
