Todd McFarlane designs Halo 3 Xbox 360 controllers

Halo 3 is poised as potentially the biggest Xbox 360 game of 2007, and Microsoft is making sure that everyone will join in on the craze once the game hits on September 25. Currently, the Xbox 360 controllers come in the conservative shades of black and white, but the peripheral will be getting an extreme makeover a few weeks before Halo 3’s release.

Spotted on GameStop’s online store for preorder are two wireless controllers and a headset in Halo 3 motif. The two wireless controllers come in either MasterChief or Covenant themes with artwork by Spawn comic book master Todd McFarlane (pictured above). The controllers will also come with an exclusive Halo 3 figurine from McFarlane Toys. The Halo 3 wireless controllers are priced at $59.99, representing a $10 premium over the more pedestrian black and white controllers.

For chatters on Xbox Live, a Halo 3 wireless headset will also be released alongside the controllers. The headset doesn’t feature any McFarlane artwork, but instead comes in a shade of green that would match well along with the MasterChief helmet from the Halo 3 Legendary Edition. It also will retail for $59.99, the same price as the regular white edition currently on the market.

For those who must have all things Halo 3, GameStop will be selling this week an appropriately themed Halo 3 Zune music player. The special edition grey music player will come preloaded with artwork, music and videos from the Halo trilogy, plus episodes from the Red vs. Blue machinima.

I was thinking we'd get some controllers skinned to look like Spartan armor or look like weapons (or at least look something like the Zune player does) - having game art instead is just too tacky IMO.

I agree 100%. They look pretty tacky. I liked the Halo controllers for the original Xbox. They were Master Chief Green and with a Halo jewel instead of the Xbox logo. Cool and different, yet subtle. Of course those only came with the special edition Halo Xbox, but then they sold similar green ones for the same price as the normal black ones.

The new H3 headset looks pretty cool and much more like what I'd want in a H3 branded controller. And the Halo 3 Zune is awesome looking. Too bad it's a Zune :(
