X360 Red and Green Pads
Microsoft continued its string of E3 hardware announcements today with two new Xbox 360 gamepads, including the company's first gamepad bundle. Those who buy the Limited Edition Red Wireless Controller get both a unique, special-run color of the console peripheral but also get a Play and Charge Kit that supplies both the extra power of a color-matching lithium-ion pack but also the USB cable to recharge the battery without interrupting gameplay.
The red pad is also joined by a new green model which should have a more permanent place in the company's lineup but will go without the extras. Both it and the Limited Edition Red gamepad go on sale September 30th at prices of $55 and $65 respectively. [images via Engadget]
