With colors that mimic snow-covered environments, the Xbox 360 Special Edition Arctic Camouflage Wireless Controller is designed for covert operations. The D-pad transforms from a plus to a disc for greater precision in both directional and sweeping movements. Xbox kindly provided thisisxbox.com with a controller and it looks great, it compliments any gamer who is into first-person-shooters as the camo’ design could also be seen to represent army gear for the virtual war hero within you.
As well as featuring a unique camouflage design, the controller has a 30-foot wireless range and a transforming D-pad, enabling rotation between the “plus” and “disc” formats for greater precision. Special Edition controllers such as this make perfect gifts for the gamer who you know is likely to have all the latest games, but you still want to find that perfect present that fits with their gaming habits. So, if you’re unsure about what game to buy your friends and family instead of opting for the gift-card-voucher easy option, have you thought of buying a new controller?
Maybe you’re thinking about this for yourself recently, or if you’re in the military it would be fitting to replace your controller with a design that you’re eyes have likely seen for months or even years on end – make your controller match your uniform! It has also been known that many hardcore fans of the Xbox 360 buy all the Special Editions of both console and controller, since the retail units are often limited and come in a range of jazzy designs and styles that will not be around for long. If you feel like adding a camouflage design to your collection, then why the hell not – especially if you’ve previously snapped up the silver and purple metallic editions!
