The Xbox 360 controller is undoubedtly the best controller available on the current market, and possibly even the best controller ever produced. Due to the controllers success and the success of the console it belongs to, Microsoft has released many variations on the controller to appeal to all gamers; and to no doubt milk every bit of money they can. The Halo franchise is without doubt Microsoft's biggest money maker, and they have tried to capatalise on this by releasing 2 limited edition controllers with Halo themed designs.
This controller has exactly the same feel and features of a normal Xbox 360 controller apart from it's design. The outer skirts of the controller are coloured solid black instead of a normal grey colour, with light blue being the main colour over the rest of the controller. A strange looking creature know as a member of the Covenant is seen on the left side of the controller, with the right hand side being dominated by what appears to be flying drones found in the Halo universe.
The design is surprisingly nice to look at, but not nice enough to make me rush out and buy one. For the Halo fanboys only...
This wireless xbox 360 controller is an amazing limited edition idea released by microsoft around the time of release of Halo 3! It is exactly the same quality as the original xbox 360 wireless controller but with black analog controls, and a unique halo3 covenant design (the 'evil' characters of the game).
The design has a background of blue-black starry sky. The right hand side shows the covenant ghosts heading into battle, with plasma cannons being fired. The right hand side of the controller shows a portrait of the brute chieftan. As you can see from the image the artwork is brilliant and i think that this is a great addition to any halo fan's collection!
Because of their limited edition status they may not be available to buy from a store, but you may be able to pick them up online at a reasonable price. I would definately reccomend this item! Especially to Halo fans - both male and female.
The Xbox360 limited edition covenant wireless controller is a great addition to any fans halo gear.
On the controller is some very attractive art design on one side is a covenant brute soldier wearing elaborate headgear, on the other side of the controller is a banshee aircraft vehicle. The artwork is really nice and will not scratch off easily.
Fans of the Spartans and the master chief may prefer to purchase the limited edition controller with relevant Sparta artwork.
This controller functions identically to the official Xbox360 wireless controller, it has the same button layout and is the same shape and size.
Halo fans who want a unique controller with some a great images on it from the halo universe will enjoy using the Xbox 360 limited edition covenant wireless controller.
You can purchase this controller for around 30 to 50 pounds, it may be harder to find now as they are not in production.
