Microsoft Unveil Golden Xbox 360 Controller, Coming This August

Microsoft have unveiled a new golden Xbox 360 controller that will be available this August for £39.99 in the UK and $54.99 in the US.

It's super shiny, boasts the D-pad from the silver limited edition controller (i.e. the less crap one), and will no doubt make Tim Westwood incredibly happy.

Had he been alive (or indeed real) this news would no doubt have turned Auric Goldfinger into a raving Microsoft fanboy.

It will, of course, no doubt attract fingerprints and slippages like carrion attracts flies and as far as we know, you won't be able to use it with the Xbox One... which will arrive three months after this blinged-up totem hits the shelves.

Just in time for the Olympics.

Wait...

Come to think about it - is this any different to the controller from the Star Wars edition they released a while back?

Sounds like the sort of thing that would only appeal to the same people who'll be picking up an XBone on release, in... just under four months.

Is it actually possible for Microsoft to try any harder to be **** right now? Really.

Why do controllers not seem to get cheaper over time while the consoles do?

Maybe they had a bunch of them sitting in a warehouse somewhere?

New controller my ass


That doesn't sound very ergonomic, also I'm worried about using the 'X' box home button...
