CES 2013: Limited Edition Tomb Raider-themed Xbox 360 controller unveiled
Crystal Dynamics, Square Enix, and Microsoft at CES 2013 unveiled a new, limited-editionTomb Raider-themed Xbox 360 controller. As you can see from the images, the tattered-looking controller resembles that of Lara's climbing axe and tourniquets often wrapped around her. Below is the full description:
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. It’s 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.
