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.

Expensive

I wouldnt pay the regular $49 price for these, much less a $10 premium at $59. In fact, these would probably have to be sitting in the "stinky bin" at big lots for $5 to make me consider buying these....then hiding them in my closet when i have company over so no one can see how stupid they really look.

I'd liken these to the Spongebob Squarepants PS2 controllers. I bought them cheap just to make my company use them when they came over...
