A lot of us reading this (well… writing in my case) know of the red Resident Evil 5 Xbox 360 which will be coming around the world very soon, will have a red 360 controller with it. However, now news also comes that the red 360 controller which will be bundled with the console will be made available on it’s own in stores.
The controller will set you back £40, but before you grab your torch and pitch fork – the red controller also comes with a red battery pack and charger cable. Doesn’t sound like such a bad deal now eh? I’m definitely considering picking this up, as my current controller is slowly dying on me and a spare battery pack and charger cable makes it a lot more tempting.
Press release below:
LIMITED EDITION XBOX 360 RED CONTROLLER BUNDLE AVAILABLE ACROSS EUROPE ON 13th MARCH
