Microsoft has announced a new limited-edition controller that they have created jointly with the staff from Tomb Raider. Personally I think it’s a great-looking controller, but the price tag that comes along with it I’m not too fond of. The controller will be available beginning March 5, 2013.
Along with buying the controller you also get a downloadable token to download an additional character from the game.

Experience Lara Croft’s First Adventure with the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER™ Limited Edition Wireless Controller
At the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today, Microsoft, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix unveiled the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER™ Limited Edition Wireless Controller – the perfect commemorative companion marking Lara Croft’s return to the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Developed in collaboration with artists at Crystal Dynamics, the design of the controller features a two-layer color finish with laser etching to create a realistic and tactile worn appearance inspired by Lara’s iconic climbing axe and the tourniquets that result from the adventure in her intense origin story, as told in this latest title. The controller also features a customizable D-pad that switches from a “plus” design to a “disc” pattern for better control, and a wireless range of up to 30-feet that allows for more freedom in your home environment as you explore and play the game.
In addition, those who purchase the Xbox 360 TOMB RAIDER Limited Edition Wireless Controller will receive a download token for an Xbox 360 exclusive playable TOMB RAIDER character. The controller will be available timed to the launch of the game worldwide and is priced at $59.99 (U.S. ERP).
