Tomb Raider Limited Edition Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Up For Grabs
Want to have a weapon in your hand as cool as Lara Croft’s makeshift climbing axe? Your chance is here, now that Microsoft has announced a limited edition wireless controller for Tomb Raider!
Larry Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson, has revealed the controller on his blog today, complete with a video that gives us a more detailed look at the peripheral and what makes it so special.
The press release says that it features, “a two-layer color finish with laser etching.” This is to replicate the look of Lara’s climbing axe, giving it a very hardened look, complete with tourniquets on the facade. There’s also a customizable directional pad which can be turned into a disc, for more control than the traditional “plus” shape.
An added bonus to this controller, on top of its badass aesthetics, is that each one will come with a download token for an Xbox 360 exclusive character. The controller will debut with the game on March 5th, 2013 and will cost $59.99.
But, if you enter Major Nelson’s contest, you can win one of the five controllers that he’s giving away. All you have to do is post a comment on his blog about which Tomb Raider game is your favorite and why. You have until 9:00 AM PST on January 18th, 2013 to enter, so get to writing!
If you need any motivation, just peep the video below and let us know what your thoughts are on this special peripheral.
