It’s blue, it’s pink, it’s Xbox!

Adding more colour to a gaming console may seem unnecessary to some, but obviously, there is a need and a market. Microsoft has endeavoured to capture this with the launch of new controllers and the Xbox 360 Halo 3 Special Edition Console.

Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers will be available in festive new colours starting October 2007. High-performance wireless gaming now comes in pink and blue! Using optimized technology, enjoy a 30-foot range and up to 40 hours of life on the two included AA batteries—and when they run low, you’re given ample warning so you can connect a Play & Charge Kit for uninterrupted play. Plug the Xbox 360 Headset into the controller for full two-way voice communication—a wireless first.
