‘Designed for covert operations.’
Although the Xbox One may be all the rage these days, Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about its most successful console ever just yet- today they announced a new special edition controller for the Xbox 360. The Arctic Camouflage Xbox 360 Controller will retail for $55, and features “colors that mimic snow-covered environments,” because it is “designed for covert operations.”
The new controller will feature the special ‘transforming’ D-pad, the new D-pad that Microsoft introduced in controllers in response to criticisms about the older, less responsive one, so it presents a good viable alternative to anyone who wants to pick up a new 360 controller before they’re hard to find- the D-pad experience will certainly be better than it is on a standard controller, which fixes about the one and only flaw that this controller ever had.
The Xbox One, by comparison, currently only has two different controller options available- the standard black one, and a special edition Titanfall one. Of course, a half decade plus from now, it too should have amassed a fairly sizable collection of special edition controllers.
