Microsoft Reveals Chrome Plated, Retailer Exclusive Controllers

Shop at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and GameStop? No? Then you’re not getting a chrome plated Xbox 360 controller, because those stand as the only stores who will be stocking them.

The fingerprint-suckers come in a trio of colors, silver, red, and blue respectively. Coming in mid-May, these will run you $55, a $15 premium over the standard wireless controller Microsoft has offered since… well, since the hardware came into existence. If a controller that looks like a dusted crime scene is your thing, then these purty, shiny colors may suit your needs.

No word on if these will seep into other retailers any time soon, of if more colors will become available.
