Microsoft unveils funky new 360 controllers

Mix and match with the new red and green Xbox pads

New red and green Xbox 360 controllers unveiled at E3

Microsoft followed a successful E3 2008 press conference yesterday by treating 360 gamers to two new, funkily-coloured red and green Xbox controller pads.

Each pad is to be bundled with rechargeable batteries and the Play and Charge cable – so no more running out of batteries at that vital point in Halo 3 or Gears of War!

Out in September

The controllers will cost $64.99 in the US and be released at the end of September.

No word yet on UK or European pricing or release, but expect that to follow pretty soon.
