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!

A very brief unboxing video is below showing it in a pair of hands:

Want Better Sex – Find Yourself an Xbox 360 Gamer

A study by a money saving website in the UK has revealed that Xbox 360 owners are the best in the bedroom. 1,747 gamers’ partners from around the UK were questioned as part of research into external influences on relationships.

After establishing that their partner played videogames in their leisure time, the study asked respondents to choose from a list of gaming platform options. The most common answer was the Xbox 360 with 31% of the vote. The Playstation 3 was next at 26%. Whilst 12% played on the Wii, be that the Wii U or the original model. However, only 10% of respondents’ partners were PC gamers.

The survey then asked ‘How would you rate your partner in the bedroom?’ and gave them a list of options to choose from, which resulted in the following:

Excellent – 11%
Very good – 14%
Good – 27%
Average – 26%
Below average – 20%

The results showed that nearly half of gamers were voted as being only ‘average’ or below. When broken down proportionally between the most frequently played consoles, it emerged that Xbox 360 owners were the best in the bedroom, with 54% of them being described as ‘good’ or above. 22% were regarded as ‘excellent’ by their partner. Players of the Wii also put in a strong showing as 47% of the total were described as being ‘good’ or above.

In contrast, the smallest percentage of gamers scoring an above average mark in the sex stakes were PC gamers, with only 3% being described as ‘excellent’ and 8% regarded as ‘very good’.

As part of the study, respondents were also questioned about the frequency of gaming compared to bedroom activity and asked for their opinion about the ratio. 52% felt that the balance between the two was ‘just right’, whereas 21% confessed to wanting ‘more sex, less gaming’. However 11% actually claimed to want ‘less sex, more gaming’ from their partner.

If you are a single female aged between 25 & 35, you should be pleased to know that I am a 33 year old male with a super sexy shiny Xbox 360 S console and capable of handling my controller very well. I live in Devon, UK with a G.S.O.H and an experienced Xbox 360 gamer since having a console for over 7 years now!
