Purple and black Xbox 360 chrome pads on the way

Publish date:

Microsoft is adding two new models to its Xbox 360 chrome joypad range.

Two SKUs – one purple and the other black – will be released at the beginning of March in the US for $54.99.

There are some exclusivity deals in place, too, with the purple model being stocked by Best Buy and the black model by Walmart, although both can also be ordered directly through Microsoft.

A worldwide release has been confirmed, although a schedule for the pair's arrival in Europe has not yet been confirmed.

Silver, gold, red and blue chrome controllers are already available. All of the chrome range offer Microsoft's alternative transforming d-pad.
